Florida Georgia Line hit 100 consecutive weeks on Billboard Hot Country Songs chart
Florida Georgia Line have become the first ever country music act to manage 100 cumulative weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart since its inception in 1958.
Meant to Be with Bebe Rexha has elevated the duo to a new level, and the song is now 3x platinum. Speaking to Billboard about the song’s success, Brian Kelley expressed his gratitude to the country music community for their success.
“We set out to write good songs, so to see them travel far beyond our reach is still hard to wrap our heads around,” Kelley said. “We are so thankful to country radio, our fans and our team for believing in even our wildest dreams.”
The collaboration with Rexha is the duo’s first number 1 debut on Hot Country Songs, and despite being released on the 16th of December 2017, has managed to hold its position for 44 weeks. Since its release, the song has managed over a billion streams across the globe.
Tyler Hubbard also spoke to Billboard, and revealed how in awe he is by the fan reaction to not only the track, but to the band also, and insists that it is a dream to do what he does.
