Mero is a rapper from Germany. His style of music is characterized by the use of doubletime (ie when music passages are played at twice the speed as usual). His songs can also be recognized by the oriental-looking choruses. Mero writes all of his songs himself and is currently contracted with the Groove Attack TraX label.
Mero was born on July 28, 2000 in Rüsselsheim, Hesse. His real name is Enes Meral. His parents are Turkish immigrants from the province of Gümüshane, which is located in northeastern Anatolia. He has two sisters. Mero grew up in the Rüsselsheim district of Dicker Busch, with which the catchword social focus is associated. Growing up there was so formative for him that he often refers to this place in his songs.
After Mero tried to become a professional soccer player and made it into the U17 of SV Darmstadt 98, he concentrated entirely on music. His ascent was meteoric. At the end of 2018 the rapper released his first single with “Baller los”. After just one day, the video was able to achieve a million views and immediately made it to the top position on the German trend charts on YouTube. In the German single charts he managed to take first place. In the years that followed, he was able to build on this success and land more hits. Mero now has 2.5 million subscribers on Instagram. He is also a popular guest musician who has worked with Eno, Loredana and Brado.
Mero has released two studio albums so far: “Ya Hero Ya Mero” and “Unikat”, both of which were released in 2019. “Ya Hero Ya Mero” made first place on the album charts in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. “Unikat” reached number 4 in Germany, number 6 in Austria and number 14 in Switzerland. Three of his singles (“Baller los”, “Hobby Hobby” and “Wolke 10”) reached number one on the German single charts). These three singles also conquered the top spot in the Austrian single charts. Five other titles made it into the German Top Ten and seven other songs took places in the Top Twenty (although not all songs were released as singles, but were available through streaming and download). Since the existence of the German single charts, Mero has been the first rapper to land in first place with his first single. In Germany he was awarded four gold records. He has received this award twice in Austria and once in Switzerland. In Austria it was also awarded platinum.
“Baller los’ came out brother, Thursday night. The next day I was still working with work shoes, brother. 500,000 clicks in eleven hours! I’m crazy. ” “Brother, it’s way too fast, you know? Everything just happened too quickly. It is so blatant. I pray to God every day. You have to estimate, brother. Every day I pray to God and just thank you that everything is going so blatantly and Insallah will continue to be that way. ”
Mero is musically talented and has a remarkable flow. He has a distinctive voice with recognition value. With his songs he seems to hit the zeitgeist. Mero faces the responsible task of dealing with a rapid and completely unexpected success. He is aware of this and tries to stay on the floor with both legs. Mero is also a believer and often seeks contact with God in prayer. It is very important for him to show gratitude and not to become self-centered.
