Billboard Hot 100:
26. (+2) 'Meant To Be'

I never expected this to be a hit for her. I think top 20 is possible, as she's gaining more spins on US Radio.
Happy for her, although it's one of her weaker songs.

Given it's a top ten hit here, I can only imagine that it'll chart higher in the US, where country music is popular.

I actually think it's one of her stronger tracks. Maybe it's success will lead to a more natural and wholesome direction. :lol:

Billboard Hot 100:
12. (17) 'Meant To Be'

I guess the success of the song is why she postponed her new EP 'Expectations'

If the fact that Bebe Rexha had to go country to get a hit isn't excruciating enough, her label had her release an EP instead of an album but have been promoting said EP for 11 months so far. Nearly a year, and we've only got two singles (both of which are bad).

The GP picking this while (Not) The One gets paid dust is just :cry: .

Also this single was released in October and still hasn't peaked. Pop music/streaming is so slow these days, it's exhausting. I'll be dead by the time most pop artists get their albums out.

This has grown on me but I wish it had slightly stronger country vibes and I’m still bothered Bebe is credited as the lead artist when she sings like only a third of the song :lol:

She released a solo, acoustic version of the song and it's beautiful! <3

I like the acoustic version better than the original. Mainly because it doesn't feature FGL haha.
