*Over 40,000 people have signed a petition demanding Jacquees, the self-proclaimed King of R&B, to stop remixing songs.
A change.org request was created Dec. 21 and reads, “As a Black Community, we have to figure out how we getting rid of Jacquees.”

“He must be stopped! He disrespected Keith Sweat, then I just heard his Dirty Diana cover,” one signee wrote.
“He did the NE “If it Isn’t Love” choreography in his video for “Candy Rain”….everybody know you sposed to do the Candy Rain dance,” another wrote.
The 24-year-old dropped his debut album “4275” in June and most recently declared himself the “King of R & B,” although many music lovers, Black Twitter and notable R&B singers would disagree.
Jacquees has not yet responded to the petition, which has already hit its goal of 25,000 signatures. As of Friday morning, more than 43,000 people had signed it.
