The collab passes Little Big Town's "Girl Crush" as the longest-leading No. 1 for a song with lead female vocals.
Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line's pop/country crossover hit "Meant to Be" leads Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart, which blends streaming, airplay and sales data for a 14th week (on the chart dated March 10), granting Rexha a record.
The title rewrites the mark for the most weeks at No. 1 for a song with lead female vocals. It passes Little Big Town's "Girl Crush" (sung by the group's Karen Fairchild), which ruled for 13 weeks in 2015. (Hot Country Songs launched as an all-encompassing genre songs chart in 1958 and adopted its current triple-metric methodology on Oct. 20, 2012.)
"Meant" hits the all-genre Radio Songs chart's top 10, rising 11-8 with 80.2 million in audience, up 16 percent, in the week ending March 4, according to Nielsen Music. It also enters the Pop Songs top 10 (12-10) and climbs 15-11 on Country Airplay (21.3 million, up 25 percent). Additionally, it drew 21.3 million U.S. streams and sold 34,000 downloads in the tracking week.
