Jacquees Believes Proclaiming Himself The King of R&B Caused An ‘Internet Hate Train’


It looks like Jacquees had a lot to say regarding how fans responded to him proclaiming himself the King of R&B. The singer reflected on this during a discussion with Cam Newton on a recent episode of Funky Friday with Cam Newton.

“You know, I sit down and read comments and do that and do this, but see, I’m really outside for real, too. … I see the internet, and I see real life, and I be like, ‘This don’t match. Like, this don’t really go together,’”

said the singer. 

“I just see a lot of lies. Like, my shows sold out. Like, I just did 2,200 in LA for Valentine’s Day, you feel me? My last show in Atlanta was 100 racks, you feel me? I don’t know, like, I’m doing something right. And the music still sounds good,”

the B.E.D singer continued. 

He noticed a rise in the

“hate internet train”

a few years ago. Jacquees recalled,

“I know it’s just like a hate internet train for Jacquees. Ever since I said I was King of R&B, people just went crazy.” 

If you recall, back in 2018, Jacquees referred to himself as the King of R&B causing a large debate about male R&B artists who could also give themselves the crown.
