Even if you don’t know Jason Boyd, a.k.a. Poo Bear, you know Poo Bear. He’s one of Justin Bieber‘s main dudes, and he helped write such Bieb smashes as “Where Are Ü Now” and “What Do You Mean?” He also co-wrote Usher‘s “Caught Up,” so he’s been around.
He very likely met Skrillex during those recent Bieber sessions, and we all know Skrill enjoys a good collaboration. It seems he got in the studio with Poo Bear for some one-on-one time, and the result is a track called “Would You Ever,” and the super-fun music video just dropped.
“Would You Ever” is catchy and upbeat with a funky, chopped up vocal hook. Poo Bear’s voice is deep and rich, a cool take on the traditional soulful house sound. We hope we hear him take the spotlight more from now on. The video features a shirtless skateboarder absolutely getting it as he coasts down a California street. Skrillex and Poo Bear make an appearance around the 2:18 mark. The whole thing radiates with sunshine and smiles, adding to the song’s infectious feel-good wave.
If this doesn’t have summer ’17 written all over it, we don’t know what does. Enjoy “Would You Ever” below.
