Over 40K Sign Petition Asking Jacquees to Stop Remixing Songs

*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.”

The Atlanta naive has infuriated some music lovers with his rendition of popular hits such as Donnie Hathaway’s “This Christmas,” Beyonce’s “Bow Down” and Soul For Real’s “Candy Rain,” have surfaced online. And then there was much online debate about his version of Ella Mai’s “Trip”.

Jacquees’ remix was of the song  was reportedly removed from Soundcloud by Mai’s team. As reported by ajc.com, a few petitioners even mentioned his remixes in the comments section of the page.

“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.
