Ever since he was a kid, Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd knew he wanted to write songs. He got his first chance in high school, when he wrote “Anywhere” for R&B group 112. From there he’d go on to help craft numerous hits, including 112’s “Peaches and Cream” and multiple chart-toppers with producer Scott Storch. It wasn’t until he teamed with pop star Justin Bieber, however, that he got the credit he deserved as a go-to hitmaker.
