Jacquees Says He's the 'King of R&B,' John Legend & More Respond

Hip-hop artist Jacquees has crowned himself the “King of R&B” and now others in the music world are speaking out.

The 24-year-old artist said in a video shared online, “I just wanna let everybody know that I’m the king of R&B right now, for this generation. I understand who done came and who done did that and that and that, but now it’s my turn — Jacquees — the king of R&B.”

John Legend, who is arguably one of the best R&B artists out there today, shared his thoughts and even threw some names out there.

“Honestly I don’t think there is a king of r&b right now. Anyone consistently dominating the charts, selling out arenas, etc, a la Usher at his prime. Not a comment on quality. I think the throne is open right now,” he tweeted. “Part of me is talking myself into saying Bruno or the Weeknd but I’m not sure they neatly fit into the genre.”
