Producer Poo Bear Talks Justin Bieber’s Loyalty + The Creation Of “I’m The One”
Producer Jason Boyd, better known as Poo Bear, sat down with Billboard recently to discuss his relationship with Justin Bieber.
Poo Bear is responsible for tracks such as “Fruit Salad,” “Purpose,” “I’m The One” & “Despacito.”
Before diving into the creation of “I’m The One” & “Despacito,” Poo Bear made it evident that Justin Bieber is one of the most passionate artists he has worked with.
“He genuinely loves music, honestly more than anybody I’ve seen.”
He went on to say that Bieber is extremely loyal and he will stick by Justin’s side forever.
“His loyalty — I’ve never had an artist that I’ve worked with say my name in a radio interview or any type of magazine or anything. He was the first artist that I worked with consistently who actually promotes me. Some artists want to take all the credit — for him to be honest and proud of us and all of our work that we’ve done together, to me that just speaks volumes. He’s just so loyal, man, and I’m here for him forever.”
Poo Bear eventually dove into the creation of “I’m The One” with DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Chance The Rapper, Lil Wayne & Quavo of Migos.
“I’m the One” started off with something that I created with Justin. It was only a beat — it wasn’t even a beat, it was the guitar part that you hear in there. It was an idea that Khaled heard, and he wanted Justin to sing it, and Justin wanted to work on it with me. It turned into the hook, and then from that, Khaled took it and sent to Quavo, Chance [and Lil Wayne].
