Crafting her own brand of purposeful pop, Mereki has been weaving together a beautiful tapestry of her video releases over the last few months. Each embracing a different style than the last, “Wasted Love” is chic and assertive – Watch.
Diving into the song, Mereki said, “I wrote ‘Wasted Love’ when I was going through a breakup, and everything felt meaningless. When I listen now, I can connect the feelings in this song to different difficult moments in my life. And with hindsight, I can see that every challenge has created the necessary portal to deliver me to where I am now.”
She continues, “I've learned that instead of resisting, if I can embrace every experience as it is, then most things are less painful. I believe that being human and feeling the entire spectrum of emotions is a privilege. I also have faith that the Universe has a plan and it's best to run with that.”
Wasted Love” joins the cinematic universe Mereki has been painting with her recent visuals for “Presence,” “Wake Up Dead,” “Purple Moons,” “The Garden” and “Twin Flame.” All exhibiting the enchanting allure of both fairytales and reality, the beauty within Mereki’s videos showcases her ability to take hold of every moment of life.
Back in March of this year, Mereki released her debut solo album Death of a Cloud via BMG and her own label BunBun Records. Created over seven years and three continents, in collaboration with a roster of the artists Mereki trusted most to bring this deeply personal and intuitively conceived material to life, the album is a look into the joy and difficulty of self-realization and finding the universe within, expressing this journey through music.
Death of a Cloud received praise from the likes of Billboard, FLOOD, Atwood Magazine, and many others. In celebration of the body of work, Mereki hosted an album release party at Friar Park. At the release party, guests were welcomed with a Lily Vanilli tea party and a bed suspended in the clouds. Mereki’s guests were then invited to take a solo healing journey to self-realization through the magical garden walk while listening to the record. The grounds were dotted with baby blue mushroom fairy circles and letting go rituals linked to each song on the record.
