No matter what you do, you’ve got to know your roots and Jacquees certainly does. The Atlanta-based singer & songwriter has cooked up his own smooth, slick, and simmering brand of 21st century R&B with an old school twist on his debut release 4275.
“I grew up listening to the greats,” states Jacquees. “My mom would play everything from Marvin Gaye & Barry White to Jodeci & Boyz II Men around the house. You could pull up on the block listening to those cats, and no one would think twice. I want to cause that same reaction. When you listen to my music, it will make you feel like you can roll up on any girl in the world. It’s that ‘G’ mentality.”
Jacquees definitely picks up the mantle for the genre, while forging his own way.
