Jacquees on Backlash From Calling Himself ‘King of R&B’: ‘It Put a Target on My Back’

Published: Tuesday 10th Dec 2019 by Rashad

This time last year relative newcomer Jacquees ruffled the feathers of some of R&B’s most devoted listeners when he crowned himself the genre’s king (click here to read more).  Inciting ridicule and backlash – even from some of the format’s most prized male vocalists (see:  Usher, R. Kelly, Trey Songz, and more) – the announcement garnered all the wrong types of attention for the 25-year-old.

Despite the push back, ‘Quees doubled down on his proclamation by titling his sophomore effort ‘King of R&B’ (in stores now).  Now hot on the promo trail in its support, he’s hitting back at detractors who mistake his ‘confidence for arrogance.’  Most recently spotted at SiriusXM cranking out live renditions of some of the album’s prized gems, look inside to hear him sound off on ‘haters’ and more:

    He is such a douchebag. He brought rnb to the front again? Hell, no one knows who he is. Actually, the women brought rnb to the front again cause they were actually innovative and brought something new.

    To call your DEBUT album “King of R&B”, is arrogant.
