Don’t expect a repeat of Sunday’s performance, though, as the Rexha and Florida Georgia Line trade out a gospel-influenced choir for a funky live band that adds jazzy flourishes, funky live drums, a fiery guitar solo, and some unexpected, R&B-inspired changes to the song’s chord progression.
“Meant to Be” has spent several weeks atop Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs Chart, a feat that earned pop star Rexha the unusual distinction of a record-breaking female country artist. The track was originally culled from her 2017 EP All Your Fault: Pt. 2.
Rexha’s forthcoming LP Expectations is due June 22nd. FGL will appear at several music festivals over the next few months, including Stagecoach, Country Jam and Country Stampede.
