Discover the Emotional Power of Mergui’s “Happy Now?” Single

Mergui (@mergui) is an Israel-born, LA-based singer-songwriter. Not too long ago, he unveiled his introspective new single, “Happy Now?,” produced by Mergui in collaboration with songwriter/producer K-KOV and 3x GRAMMY-nominated Varo (Black Eyed Peas, Pitbull).

“‘Happy Now?’ is a song about seeing your ex with someone new for the first time, and genuinely wanting them to be happy but also feeling hurt and wishing you could move on too.” – Mergui explained

“Happy Now?” is a lived-in meditation on all the wildly conflicting feelings that tend to overwhelm us after a devastating breakup. It has lush guitar tones, ornate piano work, and gorgeously sweeping strings.

The accompanying visualizer, directed by Damien Blue (Conan Gray, Khalid), enhances the song’s depth, set against a minimalist backdrop that accentuates the song’s raw emotional power through poignant imagery.

“Happy Now?” serves as a wonderful taste of what listeners can expect to hear on Mergui’s upcoming sophomore EP, “Shadows Of Blue,” available on May 9th, 2024, via Saban Music Partners. Furthermore, Mergui will perform “Happy Now?” on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Friday, March 29th, 2024.

Co-produced by Mergui in collaboration with esteemed producers such as K-KOV and the legendary David Foster (Mariah Carey, Madonna, and Michael Jackson), “Shadows Of Blue” promises to showcase Mergui’s intricate musicality and soul-stirring vocal presence.

The EP delves into themes of vulnerability in his lyrics, marking his most powerful work to date. Equal parts intimate and cinematic, timeless yet forward-thinking, it reflects Mergui’s refined sense of melody and boundless creativity nurtured since childhood.

On the meaning behind the EP’s title, Mergui said, “There’s no shadow without light. That’s why we called the EP ‘Shadows Of Blue.’ It’s exploring those sad moments—the blue shadow—but also recognizing that they couldn’t exist without the light in your life.”

The result is a one-of-a-kind body of work that fully captures the pain and beauty of staying true to your passion, regardless of the challenges faced.
