The track also received a heavy amount of playtime throughout Diplo and Sam Divine’s sets, as well as radio rotation from Arielle Free and Danny Howard, which heavily aided in the track’s enormous success.
“Bel Mercy” samples a reggae track from Super Beagle called “Dust a Sound Boy.” Jengi began working on the track after his laptop was stolen. He lost all of his previous music and resulted in him making the best music of his career.
“I was on a short trip in Berlin and my laptop got stolen,” Jengi tells Sport Playlists. “All the music I had made recently was gone. ‘Bel Mercy’ was one of the first tracks I made after getting back home together with the rest of the Berlin Trauma EP. This bad experience resulted in making the most naturally instinctive music I had ever made. So at the end, I’m actually grateful that my laptop got stolen.” says Jengi.
