The news sparked confusion amongst the country music community, many countering Carrie Underwood‘s “Inside Your Heaven” debuted at No.1. However, while Underwood’s breakout single debuted at the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, it did not debut at No.1 on Hot Country Songs chart.
In addition to their collaboration with Rexha, FGL have notched massive crossover radio hits with the help of the Backstreet Boys in their most recent No.1 “God, Your Mama, and Me” in addition to their appearance on EDM pop duo The Chainsmokers’ “Last Day Alive.”
