Marshmello, Manuel Turizo
16+ | Intermediate | Reggaeton | United States
The song "El Mergenue" is about a person who is struggling to move on from a past relationship. The lyrics express the singer's feelings of heartbreak and longing for his former lover, as well as his regret for not expressing his true feelings earlier. The chorus repeats the lines "I said I forgot you, but I hadn't forgotten you / I also said I moved on, but I hadn't moved on." The song also depicts the singer going out to a club, where he sees his ex dancing alone. He approaches her and spends a few hours together before the song ends with a declaration of love and a toast to the woman who caused the singer so much pain.
