Double No. 1 in Japan for Jonas Mengler

13. February 2019

Popakademie graduate Jonas Mengler is once again at the top of the Japanese charts. He produced the lead single "Addicted" for the No. 1 album "5th Anniversary BEST" of the Japanese artist Nissy. Jonas is also one of the two songwriters.

Nissy is a Japanese singer, actor and dancer. He became famous in Asia with the J-Pop band AAA and appeared in various films.

Only one week later, the single "Kimi wo Daisuki da" by the Japanese boy band Kis-My-Ft2 also climbed to the top of the Japanese single charts, for which Mengler co-wrote and produced the B-side track "Liar World". The single has already reached platinum status in Japan.

Thus Popakademie graduate Jonas Mengler managed to top the album and single charts in Japan with two of his productions at the same time.

The exceptional producer first studied Pop Music Design at the Popakademie before he also successfully completed his Master in Popular Music. After his studies, the Aachen-born musician signed a contract with the music publisher MUSSASHI Publishing, which specializes in K-Pop and J-Pop. Since then, Jonas Mengler's work as a songwriter and producer has been awarded several gold status and reached top positions in the charts. Mengler is also active as songwriter and producer for German artists such as Vanessa Mai, Die Lochis and Lena Mayer-Landrut. He also teaches young artists at the Popakademie.
