Bebe Rexha is ‘Meant to Be’ Topping the Charts
“Meant to Be,” by Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line, is the current number one song in Billboard Country Charts.
Billboard charts reports that the song has been on the charts for 12 weeks and these songs on the charts are selected by “radio airplay, sales data and streaming data.”
According to Rolling Stone, “the song was co-written by Tyler Hubbard and Bebe Rexha.” In an interview with radio personality Zach Sang, Rexha said that she was “freaked out” as it was her first ever country song. She said that “the lyrics are deeper and when she was so over guys, she listened to it.”
The song is intense and it’s about the uncertainty of a relationship.
Rexha plays the female voice in the song, explaining that she’s been hurt a couple of times, but would like to see where this relationship goes.
Florida Georgia Line plays the male voices, saying that she’s beautiful, but whatever the nature of the relationship is let it be.
In the song, they mention a road. This road has a double meaning because when you are traveling down a road, you often aren’t sure where you are going until you get to a destination. A lot of people can relate to the song because if a relationship is meant to happen, it will happen. So, the song serves as advice to people who are trying to define a relationship.
According to Rolling Stone again, “the song appears on Rexha’s album and was not originally intended for release as a country single.”
The song has also been performed at numerous venues such as “The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.
Florida Georgia Line has collaborated with a lot of artists such as Nelly, Luke Bryan, Backstreet Boys and Hailee Steinfeld, to name a few. Also, Florida Georgia Line did a commercial for the NFL with Jason Derulo and Hank Williams Jr.
Bebe Rexha has collaborated with one of the former stars of One Direction, Louis Tomlinson.
A celebrity news website, thefamouspeople.com, writes that “Bebe Rexha got her start after forming an experimental band with Pete Wentz, the bass guitarist for Fall Out Boys. However she left the band in order to pursue a solo career. Also, Rehxa has written several songs for Pitbull, Nick Jonas, Eminem and Rihanna, just to name a few.”
The song is trending on the country stations.
It has been viewed over 221 million times on YouTube. This song is different from Rexha’s previous songs because it follows the path of traditional country origins. The video was released on October 23, 2017 and the song can be found on iTunes.
