Song Performance on 'The Four'[edit | edit source]
The song was introduced on Season 1, Week 3 of the reality competition The Four: Battle For Stardom. Rell Jerv arrived to the competition as a hip-hop artist. He presented himself to the judges with a rap performance of his original song "Pools" to prove he had what it took to earn a seat on 'the four', which held 4 other emerging artist who secured their spots from the previous week. His performance helped him advance onto the next round after the judges gave him a pass. Rell then decides to challenge one of 'the four' vocalist Cheyenne Elliott, who is the granddaughter of Dionne Warwick, quoting "It's only right for me to take out who took out a rapper". In the previous episode before his appearance, Cheyenne dethroned a female rap contestant, Lex Lu in a challenge between a hip hop lyricist and song vocalist. Cheyenne takes on the challenge and performed a hopeful song to secure her seat, Rell challenges with another original song he wrote titled "I Own It". The reactions from the panel of celebrity judges were positive, as they all look moved to the lyrics and production beat. Meghan Trainor sidebar commentated on his performance saying "I like how effortlessly it looks on him". DJ Khaled followed with saying "This track right here I see you was going with a big boy flow, I see what you're doing" Charlie Walk stated "What you do and what you represent especially from a lyrically point of view is important for the world to see", Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs finalized his comments with "You really excited me". After The judges gave their critique, the judgement was given to the audience to decide if Rell deserved a seat at 'the four' or if Cheyenne should remain safe. Rell won the challenge and dethroned Cheyenne and became the new member of the four, and was safe from being challenged that week.
