Bosson (born Staffan Erik Olsson 21 February 1975) is a Swedish singer-songwriter. He first gained nationwide fame in Sweden when he imitated Michael Jackson in the first season of Sikta mot stjärnorna, performing Black or White and winning his semi-final. His big break as a solo artist came when composing and performing the song "One in a Million" from the album One in a Million which became a Top 10 hit in Europe and Asia in 2000 and 2001, which also appeared in the movie Miss Congeniality. He wrote it to his then girlfriend Jessica Olérs, miss Sweden 1998, and was nominated to a Golden Globe.

Two years later the successful follow-up Rockstar was released, and in June 2007 he released his fourth album Future's Gone Tomorrow / Life Is Here Today. He served as an opening act for Britney Spears during her tour in 2000, and has toured with Kylie Minogue. He has also written songs for Amy Grant and the famous guitarist Al Di Meola. As well as in his native Sweden, Bosson has achieved huge success and toured extensively in countries like Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan. He also performed with Dima Bilan (a very popular Russian singer and winner of Eurovision Song Contest 2008 for Russia).

His stage name comes from the fact that his father's first name is Bo - hence he is Bo's son.
