Mero was a British musical duo founded in 1999 by Simon Cowell. It was axed a few months later, as Cowell and RCA Records gave the girl band Girl Thing, priority over Mero.

Their lead singer, D-Mac (real name Derek McDonald), wrote Mero's only hit, "It Must Be Love", at the age of fifteen, although he was seventeen at the time of Mero's short period of fame. The other band member was Tommy Clark. "It Must Be Love" peaked at #33 in the UK Singles Chart in March 2000.[1]
