Jacquees is the stage name of Rodriquez Broadnax, an American singer and songwriter, touted as the next R&B star. After learning about the music of the Jacksons and the Temptations through television shows, he taught himself to sing when he was only nine years old.
He initially gained exposure by working with rapper T.I. on the single ‚Krazy‘. He then made a number of mixtapes before releasing his EP ’19‘, which gave his career a jumpstart. Featuring on Billboard charts encouraged him to work harder, which soon resulted in a record deal with Cash Money Records.
