Who is Marian Mereba: Biography, Age, Career

Marian Mereba, better known mononymously as Mereba, (born September 19, 1990), is an American singer, songwriter, rapper and producer.

Born in Montgomery, Alabama on September 19, 1990, Mereba was raised in Pennsylvania, and developed an interest in music at age 4. Starting with singing, Mereba eventually learned to play piano, and then guitar. Mereba's parents moved frequently to accommodate their jobs as university professors. Because of this, she was raised around different people with wide ranges of backgrounds. She began writing songs in elementary school and has said they were "a way to process her feelings of often feeling like an outsider in her environment." Mereba went to high school in Greensboro, North Carolina. She also spent nearly a year living in Ethiopia, her father's home country. Her mother is African-American and was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Check out The Full Lyric of “New Come” – Mereba

Freedom for my people is urgent

Tell me who are you serving?

Tell 'em all the facts and they curve 'em

Guess the truth is a burden

Wipe that shit out like detergent

Either that or we burn it

'Cause freedom for my people is urgent

Think you know we deserve it

News come, news go

Still we fight when the screen's closed

News come, news go

Still we fight when the screen's frozen

News come, news go

Still we fight when they won't show it

News come, news go

Still we fight 'til the light's on

I see the future, I see so clearly

I see the vision inside the children

I see so clearly, I see the future

It's green and lovely, it's waiting on me

Mereba contends with war on Azeb, the latest EP from the Spillage Village singer whose sound blends R&B, rap, and folk. The battles she describes could be anything: struggles for peace, for resources, for survival. On “News Come,” a standout on the project, she sounds ready to fight for all three.

The hopeful anthem is crafted around the leisurely guitars of Mereba and Sam Hoffman, and made even brighter with electric and acoustic cello. Mereba calmly sings about the urgency of freedom, as if its arrival is imminent and she need not worry. “I see so clearly, I see the future,” she croons, elongating her vowels like they could reach out and touch the world she imagines. “It’s green and lovely, it’s waiting on me.”

The song’s most moving moments come in its bridge, where the instruments settle to a hush before bubbling back up, slowly rebuilding their intensity. They swirl around Mereba’s repeated declarations that liberation must come swiftly.

She even offers a coy threat: “Freedom for my people is urgent!/And you know we deserve it/You got a taste of the war here now but/That ain’t even the worst yet.” This is the kind of protest song you play when in the necessary moments of rest and recharge. It’s a pat on the back and a push forward. Mereba, a vocalist-producer-instrumentalist who’s filled to the brim with faith and talent, makes “News Come” the kind of song you want to live in.
