Merōn has a knack for turning tough situations into fun ones – then turning those into hit songs. Merōn told us that she used to sing the hook of Soulja Boy’s “Kiss Me Thru The Phone” to her long distance boyfriend before bringing up the idea of an official cover to her produer and friend Justin Gammella (who has worked with Finneas, Ashe, Lennon Stella, Steve Aoki, and Kaskade)
With the help of Daylight and David Spektor, the two committed to writing their own variation of the Soulja Boy classic, revitalizing it and avoiding any chance for confusion.
Merōn’s flip is classic, laid back, emotive, and most importantly authentic. She writes from the heart, inspired by the love and pain she feels given her situation. Her ability to channel that energy into a contemporary R&B flip that hits as hard as some of our favourite hip-hop tracks is impressive to say the least.
“Thru The Phone” is for anyone that can’t see their partner. Whether it’s been 10 weeks, 10 days, or 10 minutes, I hope this song reminds you of how much you love that person, and gets you excited for when you can see them again. – Merōn
