We had the pleasure of interviewing Poo Bear over Zoom video! 

At just 14-years-old, he co-wrote “Anywhere” for multi-platinum R&B powerhouse 112, which opened the floodgates for so many more opportunities for him. Collaborations with everyone from The Rolling Stones, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Pink, and Faith Evans to Dr. Dre, Lupe Fiasco, Drake, Snoop Dogg, Yo Gotti, and Rick Ross followed. 

Since then, he's written blockbuster smashes such as Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?”, Usher’s “Caught Up,” Dan + Shay’s “10,000 Hours,” and Chris Brown’s “I Can Transform Ya” [feat. Lil Wayne & Swizz Beatz] as well as the 13-times platinum “Despacito (Remix)” [feat. Justin Bieber] for Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. His catalog includes sales of over 350 million records worldwide, dozens of multi-platinum certifications, and 100 billion streams and counting, as well as two Grammy nominations. At the same time, his entrepreneurial portfolio consists of owning the restaurant Black Star Burger, as well as co-owning hydrogen-infused water manufacturer HFactor, among others. Most recently, Poo Bear signed a joint venture agreement with Def Jam Recordings for his own label, Bearthday Music. He’s credited on Justin Bieber’s newest album, Justice, and has just finished music directing on NBC’s new show, Kenan.

Simultaneously, he emerged as a dynamic and diverse artist himself. He lent his voice to Skrillex’s “Would You Ever,” racking up over 200 million Spotify streams. In 2018, he unveiled his full-length debut Poo Bear Presents Bearthday Music, featuring guests such as Jennifer Lopez, Anitta, Zara Larsson, Jay Electronica, Justin Bieber, and more.

In October, he released his latest single, “Distant Shore." The track encapsulates that of a siren’s call, instantly pulling you in with it's electronic, upbeat energy and his entrancing vocals. It’s the perfect song to get lost to as you dance all night long. This is the first track of many, as an album is on its way.
