Florida Georgia Line are no strangers to pairing up with pop acts for music videos. They showed that recently with their video of “God, Your Mama, And Me” featuring the Backstreet Boys, among other examples.
Now they’re playing a big role in the new video for “Meant To Be” — their musical collaboration with pop singer Bebe Rexha, and it has already garnered well over five million views since it was released earlier this week.
In this clip, which was shot in Albuquerque, New Mexico, according to Just Jared, FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley don’t make their first appearance until the 1:20 mark, but their voices can be heard well before then. Meanwhile, Bebe does a good job of keeping the fans engaged with her perfectly tousled blonde hair and confident swagger.
She starts off as a hitchhiker, dressed in a flannel shirt and sparkly boots. After jumping into the back of a pickup truck, and catching a ride from a man in a cowboy hat, she finds herself working as a café waitress. From there, she begins to daydream about being on a dive bar stage with FGL. At one point she even imagines performing with the country duo on an arena stage in front of thousands of onlookers —and that clip uses what appears to be real footage from an FGL show.
Of course, she doesn’t need to daydream to be on stage with the CMA Vocal Duo of the Year nominees, as the two acts have already performed the song together many times. Fans can find “Meant To Be” on Bebe‘s current album, “All Your Fault: Pt. 2.”
