Jacquees has a polished sound with a smooth voice, but that’s a huge statement to make when he’s going up against titans like Bruno Mars, Usher, and The Weeknd. “Now it’s my time,” he said in a video shared online after acknowledging the greats that came before him.

The confident video ended up leading to a Twitter-wide dispute that involved some shady crying laughing emojis and arguing. Everyone from John Legend and Chrissy Teigen to Ty Dolla $ign got involved in the debate, offering both silly responses and serious insight about the blurring of genre lines.
