In The Pop Game episode ‘You’re in My House Now’, Grammy Award-winning producer Timbaland asks his five aspiring pop stars to prepare the same Justin Bieber song “Sorry“. He wants them to make “Sorry“ their own by putting their own stamp on the song. In front of Justin Bieber-collaborating songwriter Poo Bear, all five must stand up and sing “Sorry” as if it were written for them. Poo Bear didn’t write “Sorry“ but he did co-write Bieber’s “Where Are Ü Now”, “What Do You Mean?”, “PYD”, “Hold Tight” and “All That Matters”. When it’s Madysyn Rose‘s turn to perform in front of Timbaland and Poo Bear, the 15-year-old forgets the lyrics.
Four-time Grammy Award winner Poo Bear (born Jason Boyd) has worked with many pop stars. He co-wrote Usher’s “Caught Up” on his album Confessions, which sold more than 10 million copies in the U.S. He’s also worked with Chris Brown (I Can Transform Ya), Jill Scott (My Petition), and Kelly Rowland (Work), among others. The Pop Game airs Tuesdays at 10pm on Lifetime.
