Songland Season 2 Episode 7 Recap:
In episode 7, before the performances begin, Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman informs Ester, Ryan, and Shane that they were looking for a song, which is “easy to remember, hard to forget.” Nathan explains: “We want to find something that’s more contemporary, modern-day that we can splash in a little bit of who we are and kind of introduce that to the audience of today.”
Next, we meet the songwriters. Zak Waters from Los Angeles, California sings ‘Bad Things’ while the husband-wife duo from Washington DC, Lisa, and Juan Winans perform to ‘Maybe’. Charles Infamous from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, sings ‘Jukebox’ and finally, Chrislee from Essex Falls, New Jersey delivers a fantastic performance to her creation, ‘Love Struck’. While Charles is eliminated, Zak is paired with Ryan, Chrislee with Ester, and Lisa and Juan with Shane.
After the second round of performances, Boyz II Men finally pick ‘Love Struck’ by Chrislee to record. However, here is the twist. Much to the surprise and delight of the performers, the band says that they will record all three songs! Shawn explains the decision by saying: “It’s also an opportunity to have a song written by three of the dopest writers in the game.”
