R&B singer Jacquees got Twitter all riled up yesterday after posting a video saying that he’s the King of R&B.
As you can see from the video, fellow R&B singers such as Tank, J Holiday, Eric Bellinger, Usher, and Tyrese didn’t take too kindly to Jacquees announcing to the world that he’s the King of R&B.
J. Holiday had the funniest reaction. While trying to check Jacquees, a woman in the background asked him, “are you valet?”
He tried to clap back and say, “not with a Gucci jacket on.”
Twitter was on fire yesterday, and if you follow me at CeeSoDope, you would’ve seen my reaction to Jacquees making such a claim:
I’m all for someone having confidence, but Jacquees being the King of R&B? pic.twitter.com/gZVKNgZcyn

I mean let’s be honest, Chris Brown, R. Kelly, Usher, and Bobby Brown ain’t dead yet. Don’t get me wrong, Jacquees can sing, but he mainly remixes everyone else’s song, so how Sway?
This leads me to my question. Who is the King of R&B?
Well, I grew up on Chris Brown, so in my opinion, he’s the King of R&B at least in my generation. Despite his personal life as well, the man has consistent hits and great performances to match.
Honorable mentions include:
I feel like each generation has their king and it’s no doubt that the 90s had the most R&B bops back to back.
You be the judge.
Check out the most hilarious social media reactions to Jacquees claiming to be the King of R&B.
The fact that nobody agreed with Jacquees and instead everybody just started arguing over who it really is ???????????????????????????????????????????????????

How jacquees feels about himself is how all of you should feel about yourselves in whatever field you’re in. Leave that man alone. He said what he said.

While Jacquees is lying in yodel, I would thank you all to stop bringing up R. Kelly in the king of r&b conversation. Only thing he need to be king of is a jail cell. pic.twitter.com/O7ke6pDyci

Jacquees is supposed to feel like he’s the King of R&B, but Chris Brown…
1. Still isn’t 30
2. Hasn’t missed Billboard in 13 years
3. Just went 2x platinum on a barely marketed album
4. Had a worldwide top 5 streamed album of 2018 without releasing one
We gotta deal in facts
