Bobby Brown is calling out 24-year-old singer Jacquees!
According to the New Edition singer, he still holds the title for “King of R&B” and anyone who wants it has to challenge him to get it. He nonchalantly told TMZ for anyone even considering the honor: “If you want the title, battle me.” Watch below:
Bobby didn’t even want to get into the whole debate, but if he had to choose someone for the crown, it would be either Chris Brown or Usher. “Chris Brown’s a bad boy. Usher’s a bad boy. If anyone deserves the title, it would be one of them. I turn 50 so, you know, I need to relinquish the title anyway. I’d give it up to Usher. That’s like my son,” he said.
The “My Prerogative” singer made a bold statement saying Usher didn’t even have to challenge him because he’s just that good. Instead, he suggested a sing-off between the two entertainers.
And as for the self-proclaimed king, Brown made it clear that Jacquees is not even in the running for the title. “He’s not even recognizable. I don’t even know his music,” he said.
Bobby has spoken.
Jacquees has been on a tour of “taking down” the greats to secure the title of “King of R&B.” Recently, the 24-year-old stepped to Keith Sweat for the crown and the “Nobody” singer reminded him that he’s still in the R&B game.
