Shakira Receives Collaboration Offer from Argentine Singer Emilia Mernes
While Shakira is preparing the launch of her new song in collaboration with Manuel Turizo, the Colombian artist continues to receive offers from artists worldwide to collaborate with her.
This time, the offer comes from Argentina, and it’s not about Bizarrap or Karol G. Emilia Mernes, one of the Latin revelations of recent years, has reached out to the Colombian superstar.
Mernes, who has an impressive following of 7 million on Instagram, has become one of the most popular singers in Argentina and other parts of the world. Her rise on Spotify charts is also noteworthy.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Mernes revealed her desire to collaborate with various artists, including Shakira: “There are many! But if I had to dream big, Beyoncé would be one, a true diva. Shakira also seems incredibly talented to me. I met her in May, and she left an even greater impact on me in person.”
Who is Emilia Mernes?
Emilia Mernes, the singer, was born in Nogoy, Argentina, in 1996. She began her career in 2016 when she joined the Uruguayan group ‘Rombai,’ but later embarked on a solo career in 2018. Her first solo work, ‘Recalienta,’ appealed to a younger audience.
One of her latest songs, ‘Quieres,’ has achieved international success. She collaborated with Aitana and Páezeta on this track. Additionally, Mernes has ventured into acting, starring in the Disney+ series ‘Intertwined,’ which will premiere its second season in 2023.
Emilia is known for her unique style, including the two diamonds she places under each eye. She also has distinctive face tattoos, just like her partner, Argentine rapper Duki. The couple met while recording ‘As if it didn’t matter,’ a song they collaborated on.
