Diddy Gives His Opinion On ‘King of R&B’ Debate, Here’s What He Said

Georgia singer-songwriter Jacquees set Twitter on fire after declaring himself the “King of R&B” on Monday. It wasn’t long before Trey Songz and Ty Dolla Sign stepped into the wild debate that was going on. While some thought Bryson Tiller was better than Usher, there were those who felt Beyonce ought to wear the crown. However, Diddy gave his own opinion on the ‘King of R&B’ debate by giving a strict definition of what it means to be “king,” and establishing the pillars of R&B. He explained:

“I usually mind my business, but R&B is the foundation of my life.”

“That word king is too loosely thrown around. Now I understand the concept that we are all kings, I understand that, but if we’re talking about in the competitive arena of music, cats give away the king thing too early.”

“A couple of hits ain’t gonna do it.”

Diddy then tackles the genre, arguing that R&B must be vulnerable and sensual.

“We’re talking about rhythm and blues,” he says.

“We’re talking about sharing your soul. We’re talking about making love through your music, making a whole generation of babies. Adoring a woman, not you know putting her down, not talking about how you just wanna smash her—adoring her.”

Now, Diddy gives the condition for anyone to be considered king. He said;

“you gotta start making some R&B. You have to be vulnerable. You have to be speaking about love. You have to affect women in a positive way, and your ass gotta be able to sing.”

According to the music mogul, that sort of music is not being made today. He argues;

“R&B’s not being made right now. This is not R&B. I wanna make sure y’all clear.”

“You gotta make some R&B to be the king of R&B.”

Meanwhile, in the controversial video posted on Twitter, Jacquees said;

“I just wanna let everybody know that I’m the king of R&B right now.”

“For this generation, I understand who done came and who done did that and that and that, but now it’s my time. Jacquees the king of R&B.”

Tragically for the likes of Jacquees and the other wannabes, Diddy has defined what it takes. Based on that, the lot of them have fallen short.
