Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter/producer Jason â€œPoo Bearâ€ Boyd â€” who has worked with artists such as Usher, 112, Chris Brown and Justin Bieber â€” has entered a joint venture agreement with Def Jam and his imprint Bearthday Music.
â€œIâ€™m extremely grateful for Bearthday Music to have partnered with Def Jam and Universal,â€ Poo Bear said in a press statement.
â€œThis is truly a dream manifesting to have the support of Def Jam, and their belief not only in me but in the artists I believe in. Iâ€™m looking forward to whatâ€™s to come from this new promising venture. Thank you to Lucian Grange, Jeff Harleston and Naim McNair for this opportunity. HBD!!!!â€
Def Jam Interim CEO Jeff Harleston added, â€œPoo Bear is one of the singular songwriting talents in music today. His innate ability to understand artists, to help them find their voices, and to articulate the universality of a song is simply phenomenal. Weâ€™re excited to develop artists with Poo Bear according to his unique vision.â€
In 2019, Poo Bear released a heartfelt song called â€œTwo Commas,â€ as well as an accompanying video. The song was set to appear on his project Bars And Guitars, the follow-up to 2018â€™s Poo Bear Presents: Bearthday Music.
