Move over Taylor Swift, there’s a new lady breaking records on the country charts: Bebe Rexha.

According to Taste of Country, the up-and-coming pop star just dethroned one of Swift’s song records.

Rexha’s duet with Florida Georgia Line, “Meant to Be,” has just spent an 11th straight week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. This is the longest a female has ever spent at the peak, with Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” being the previous record holder at 10 weeks.

However, both songs never truly found their footing on country radio because both songs fit more with pop music instead of country. While it’s great to see women dominating the chart, hopefully the next chart-topper really packs in the country vibes.
