Meg Berry is set to release her new single “Built to Lose” as the follow up to her breakout radio hits “Colored Balloons” which has spent weeks at #1 on Top 40 (NRH) garnering close to 8500 spins per week across Top 40, Country and AC/Hot and “Happy Holiday Song” which debuted at #3 on the Holiday (NMW) charts in 2020.
“I wrote “Built to Lose” for a friend who lived this song. I hoped that by giving my friend, who was smarting from their painful return to dating after already feeling abandoned by the tragic end of a long-term relationship, a rhythm and melody for their nightmare date that my friend might find a way to sway and move their way out of the pain of it all, maybe even laugh at it and give dating again another whirl. I’ve heard from quite a number of folks who can identify with this song and find it scratches that itch of feeling charmed only to find the charmer has invited them into something that is Built to Lose. With so many of us feeling abandoned and duped by false-promises and dashed-hopes these days, I wanted to share this song with radio listeners everywhere in the hopes that it might move them out of whatever funk they may be struggling to swim out of too.” says Berry
