R&B fans across the internet reminded Jacquees he ain’t all that after he dubbed himself the king of the genre.
The 24-year-old crooner made the bold declaration on Saturday via his Instagram page.
“I just want to let everybody know that I’m the king of R&B right now for this generation,” Jacquees said. “I understand who came and who did that and that and that, but now it’s my turn. Jacquees is the king of R&B. I just heard it said, and I’ve been feeling that. ATL, let’s get it. I’m the new king of R&B.”
The "B.E.D." artist was swiftly corrected by dissenters.
Jacquees ain’t even the R&B Employee of the Month, what the hell made him think he was the King of a generation? 😂— Keena Renée (@keenlykeena) December 10, 2018
Jacquees said he’s the King of R&B. That shit better stand for Raisin and Bran, the fuck outta here— Richie Loco (@Richie_l0c0) December 10, 2018
If you told me to name 5 original Jacquees songs to save my apartment, I'd start packing immediately— YT: Kofie Why? (@KofieYeboah) December 10, 2018
Chris Brown is the King of R&B of our generation. I doubt Jacquees’ new album even went gold.. so that nigga nEE EEE EEEE EEEd to stop talking that bullshit 🤒— Jamie Foxx (@WardHilfiger) December 10, 2018
Other artists chimed in to help Jacquees get it together:
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.— John Legend (@johnlegend) December 10, 2018

Following the strong reaction, Jacquees bragged about dropping $100K in cash at his mother’s wedding. He posted a picture of himself with the money on Instagram.
