Although this novelty-rap track was written by Bryan Loren, a singer-songwriter known for his work with Whitney Houston and Barry White, there is speculation that the song was really penned by Simpson's fan Michael Jackson. Loren set the record straight to Music Business Worldwide in 2015: "I am the sole writer of the song. While it's true, along with me, Michael Jackson does sing backing vocals. And it WAS his idea to call the song, DTB. AND, he did insist I include his name in the lyric. Hence, 'If you can do the Bart, you're bad like Michael Jackson.' And so, obviously, he was involved. Perhaps this tidbit of info is not as sensational as saying MJ co-wrote the song, but I assure you, he did not."
