(WWETV Network) Host Brooklyn delves into the topic of Who Is The King Of R & B? This “Throwback Thursday” exclusive handles the debate a few years ago that has been raging online ever since Jacquees declared himself with the crown for this current generation. Fans and artists have chimed in on the question and Brooklyn delivers the tea about the whole ordeal. Is it Chris Brown? Is it Tory Lanez? Is it Tyrese? Is it Tank? Is it Usher?

“I just wanna let everybody know that I’m the king of R&B right now,” Jacquees said in the controversial video he posted in 2018. “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.”

During an interview on Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay podcast, Timbaland discussed Kelly’s controversial legacy and argued for separating the artist’s music from his personal actions.

“R. Kelly is the King of R&B. We all know that,” stated the producer. “And it’s interesting because whenever you mention R. Kelly, everyone reacts. But are we just going to ignore the music he has given us, the music we all enjoy? No, we can’t do that. His art is his art, and I won’t criticize his artistic contributions.”

Michael Jackson handily won the WorldWide Entertainment TV Media poll, for the crown of all-time.

The album spawned multiple chart-topping R&B hits, including “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” and “Rock with You.”
