Jacques who named himself as the king of R&B hit the super lounge stage at Essence Festival for the first time this year. With hopes to be on the main stage, the following year he made sure to give them one hell of a performance to make them wanting more!

Jacques expresses to us that Chris Brown and Birdman gave him some of the best advice coming up in the industry. With him being the target of jokes via social media we had to know how does he deal with the haters from social media. He says “The memes funny to me too,” so it’s good to know that he finds entertaining just as much as us. He also states that he likes the fact that he can start conversations, which he definitely has over the past year.
