Seems like an obvious choice as it started to take off on its own. I hope it's a hit, Bebe deserves it :)

This is the worst song on AYF Pt. 2 imo but I think it's the right thing to do since the song is currently taking off on streaming and on iTunes. :)

Never expected that. 'Meant To Be' is still sitting at #8.
Song is up to #53 (+9) on the BB Hot 100.
This will be a (moderate) hit for her.

She's going to perform at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and confirms she's going to lip sync. That's honest and cute :)
She also talks about how 'Meant To Be' was created.

And she's not even a country artist, oops :lol:

FGL have the most unpleasant country twang that sounds autotuned in all their songs. Is that actually just what their voices sound like? I always thought 'Cruise' sensed heavily processed.

Surprised no other female artist has done that. If Taylor was still releasing country music I'm sure she could have taken that title but they changed the methodology in October 2012 to include sales + streaming which was after all the songs from Red were released (before it was exclusively country radio hence why #1 debuts didn't happen often).

I'm happy for Bebe she's having another hit. Although it's not my fave single from her, I really like her and I think she deserves some more success.

I don’t understand why it’s only just debuted on the country charts - it’s been out ages and was sent to county radio weeks ago :-?

Courtesy of iHype from ATRL:

The Country chart started 1958, but it didn't have a methodology that allowed songs to debut #1 until 2012. It was based on airplay before 2012 (and a song can't go #1 on an entire radio format in a week), then they changed it to sales/streams/airplay like Hot 100 so songs could begin to debut #1 with no presence on radio if they had huge sales and streams to debut with.

This song didn't even debut with huge streams and sales. It's been out for over a month, but only became eligible to chart now since it was just sent to Country radio. Had it been eligible to chart on Country since release it wouldn't have debuted #1.

It would be like if they just let Rockstar be eligible to chart on Hot 100 this week, so it was 'a #1 debut' even though its been popular for months.
