The Clutch was an American collective of songwriters responsible for a series of successful singles including Omarion's "Ice Box", Ciara's "Like a Boy", Timbaland's "The Way I Are", Britney Spears' "Radar" and Justin Bieber's "One Less Lonely Girl".
Based in Atlanta, The Clutch consisted of Candice Clotiel "Gg" Nelson, Ezekiel "Zeke" Lewis, Patrick Michael "J. Que" Smith, Balewa Muhammad and Keri Lynn Hilson. Any combination of two or more of the five writers on a song is considered a track "written by The Clutch" as they rarely worked as a complete fivesome.
The Clutch launched many successful record producers, including: Calvo Da Gr8 ("Like a Boy"), Bigg D ("Wrong When You're Gone") and most notably Hit-Boy ("Forever", "Hey Young Girl") The Clutch also wrote songs for some of the most successful producers in modern music including Timbaland, Danja, Bryan-Michael Cox, Bloodshy & Avant and Tricky Stewart.
