  • This was released the first taste of LANCO's debut album, Hallelujah Night. "Sonically, 'Born To Love You' is one of my favorite songs on the record because it's really the bridge between the two different aspects of Hallelujah Nights," frontman Brandon Lancaster explained to American Songwriter. "It starts out a bit laid back and builds into this real rocking and up-tempo song that reflects the lyrics."

    He added: "In an anthemic way, it's an ode to the path hometowns set out for you and the different experiences we go through that lead to finding someone who is literally your reason for being here."
  • Brandon Lancaster wrote "Born to Love You" with Ross Copperman, Ashley Gorley and Josh Osborne. The Lanco frontman explained the song is about "who we all are, the small towns we came from and the search for what the world has to offer. This song brings together those early experiences with finding that person who makes it all matter... the person that you were born to love."
  • Lanco wanted their debut album to display the stage in life they'd been going through over the previous few years. Lancaster told The Boot:

    "A lot of that is about coming of age and discovering who you are. This song explores that, and talks about how, when you're from a certain place, you may feel that a certain path is set out for you, but if there's a person that you love in your life, no matter what you end up doing or where you end up going, you're kind of doing it for them anyways. You're born to love them."
  • The music video is a Technicolor trip around the world in which Lanco perform the song in a rapidly changing variety of settings. "As we continue to travel the world as a band," Brandon Lancaster explained, "we've been given a glimpse into how many people, places and cultures there are. With that in mind, we wanted a music video that emphasized the idea in this song of just how amazing it is that out of all those places and people, two people can come together and find love."
