Singer songwriter and rapper Bobby Brown’s My Prerogative showed up as the opening song on the new episode of the FX hit series Pose this week — Season 2, Episode 3, “Butterfly/Cocoon“.
The song was played as Angel arrived at the ball, and proceeded to walk the runway and win.
Bobby Brown’s My Prerogative was released in 1988 on his sophomore studio album Don’t Be Cruel. It was the second single from the album.
At the time, Brown said the song was written as a message that you should always do what you want to do, and never let others sway you away from it.
The song made it to to the number 1 spot on two Billboard charts — the US Billboard Hot 100 and the US Billboard Hot Black Singles chart.
My Prerogative was also nominated for a Grammy Award.
The music video for the song had Brown and his band performing the track live on stage.
