Jacquees Explains Why He Won't Retract His 'King of RnB' Proclamation Despite Backlash

The Georgia-born artist reveals in a new interview that people felt like he was 'arrogant, cocky, stuck up' and stupid after he declared himself as the 'King on RnB.'

AceShowbiz - Jacquees didn't regret crowning himself as the king of R&B despite earning backlash. Nearly four years after giving himself the title, the "You" singer explained why he won't retract his proclamation.

"I wouldn't take back nothing I said because that's the energy," the 28-year-old stated in an interview with Rap-Up. "That's how I felt at the time."

Reflecting on the moment, Jacquees shared, "I'm coming so humble now." He added, "Looking back, I know it put like a dent on my career at the time, because it made people feel like I'm arrogant, cocky, stuck up, stupid."

"They just thought I was on some bulls**t. They loved me, then they hated me," the Georgia-born artist continued. "I went from being Jacquees that everybody love, this young kid singing about sex and s**t… He's so cute, innocent to boom, f**k Jacquees. Who the f**k he think he is?"

"People was acting like they didn't know who I was... I'm like, I need these people to just know me. I'm the king of R&B," he further elaborated. "Once I said the statement, I realized, 'Oh, y'all do know me. Y'all just wasn't trying to show me no love.' Everybody commented on that. Bro, I was on the news."

Jacquees has learned a lot from the controversy though. "That's who I was. I was young, I was 23," he said. "I'm 28 now, I'm wiser. I just hope people can feel my heart. 'Cause everybody grew up, I just had to grow up in front of the game."

Jacquees made his bold proclamation back in December 2018. "I just wanna let everybody know that I'm the king of R&B right now," the Cash Money singer said in an Instagram clip. "For this generation, I understand who done came and who done did that and that and that, but now it's my time, Jacquees the king of R&B."
