The Entrerriana that breaks it in the world of reggaeton

Emilia Mermes is only 23 years old. With hits like “Billion” and “Police”, it shows that there is a lot of room for women in the world of reggaeton.


Who said that the  reguetonero  universe belongs only to male musicians?  Entrerriana Emilia Mermes shows that reggaeton does not necessarily have to be synonymous with objectification of   women  . Neither their exclusive content, money, fame or sex.

At only 23 years old, and a meteoric rising career, Emilia is strong as a reggaeton soloist. His hits, “No Soy Yo”, “Reheat”, “Boomshakalaka” and “Police”, have left the  Latino audience  open. It all started with a  cover  engraved in a bathroom. A week, Emilia was singing at  Luna Park ; two years later, she shares the same manager as Maluma. This was the birth of the Entrerrian star in the world of reggaeton.

 From Nogoya to Miami 

Emilia Mermes was born in  Nogoyá , in the province of Entre Ríos. Like any young man, I was studying in college. He had chosen  Literature , but after 6 months he realized that that career was not his thing. Then he went home and asked his parents that he wanted to study  music  at the UNR. However, he never reached his first class.  In his spare time he began to rehearse songs locked in the bathroom, because there was good acoustics. So he recorded his first cover and uploaded it to Instagram . From there, it all happened on fast camera. He was asked to do a casting in Buenos Aires, traveled and got a place in the Rombai group. By week, he was already doing his first show at Luna Park. Later, he left Rombai, became a soloist and moved to  Miami . That's how dizzying his musical rise was.

 A female hymn of reggaeton 

“Billion” is a hit with over 4 million views on YouTube. For many, it is a  female  anthem that makes it clear that love can not be bought with material objects. Emilia explained what she was inspired when composing it. “I am inspired by the reflection of society. In 'Billion' I was based on the  culture  of Miami, where women are an object. In Miami, the mind is not as open as here, Chile or Spain about women's equality. And I see attitudes that the man keeps the woman, that he conquers her with shopping in Gucci.  The refrain is a sarcasm, I say I'm worth a billion, for my values,” explained the composer.
