Victoria is back with a brand new single "How To Ruin a Life".

Bulgaria’s Eurovision 2020 and 2021 representative, Victoria, has released a brand new song and accompanying music video. This marks her first official music video since her Eurovision 2021 entry “Growing Up Is Getting Old”.

The music video, featuring popular Bulgarian actor Philip Bukov, has been directed by Victoria Karakoleva from Mooncut Film Studio, with cinematography by Damian Dimitrov. The music video has been produced by Ligna Studios and is supported by BNK Wines.

The end of the music video sees a teaser for Victoria’s next song to be released, “Were You Ever”, which is due to be released in early December. The song is already available for pre-save on all major streaming platforms.

Victoria has written “How To Ruin a Life” with American songwriter Sophie Hintze and Swedish songwriters and music producers Helena Larsson and Oliver Björkvall. They have all previously worked together on “Growing Up Is Getting Old”, “Phantom Pain”, “The Funeral Song” and “The Worst”.

Lyrics:
 
Think I just woke up from a bad dream
Problem when it started I was 18
I let you into everything I know
And got lost in the battle
You only ever wanted me when I left
Told me that you loved me then you’d forget
I got good at never being okay
when I realized it was too late
 
After all this time I’m getting out
And you could write a book with what you found
 
Cause I’m only twenty something
But you got it multiplied
cause you had me calculating every day and all night
And here’s to your second chances
And all of your twisted lies
Tell em all how’d you do it, “How to Ruin a Life”
 
Where’d you learn to do what you did to me?
Did you go to college, get a degree?
Guess all you really needed was my time
Cus practice makes perfect, right?
 
I don’t need to get you back I found my own way out
Maybe I am better off with what I know right now
 
Cause I’m only twenty something
But you got it multiplied
cause you had me calculating every day and all night
And here’s to your second chances
And all of your twisted lies
Tell em all how’d you do it, “How to Ruin a Life”
 
First you make me trust you
Then you make me cry
Number three convince me I’m the reason we fight
Number four I’m sorry,
But truth is number five
Now I really hate you, and I’ll hate you for life
 
Cause I’m only twenty something
But you got it multiplied
cause you had me calculating every day and all night
And here’s to your second chances
And all of your twisted lies
Tell em all how’d you do it, “How to Ruin a Life”
I’m all you need to prove it, “How to Ruin a Life”
Now I really hate you, and I’ll hate you for life

Victoria was internally selected by the Bulgarian broadcaster to be their representative for Eurovision 2020 with her song “Tears Getting Sober” which was also selected internally.

After the cancellation of the 2020 contest, the Bulgarian broadcaster brought back Victoria for the 2021 contest. Her entry “Growing Up Is Getting Old” was selected internally from a 5-song EP that Victoria had recently released. At Eurovision in Rotterdam, Victoria qualifed to the final, where she finished in joint 10th place (alongside Greece) with 170 points.

Since Eurovision, Victoria has continued to release music, alongside touring and performing on the third series of “The Masked Singer Bulgaria” in December 2021, which she won, performing as Miss. In the summer of 2022, Victoria took part in the biggest tour in Bulgaria: Coca-Cola The Voice Happy Energy Tour, and performed “How To Ruin a Life” at Sofia Pride.
