The Atlanta R&B singer who claims to be the “King of R&B” set the crowd on fire at the State Fair Classic on Sept 28. 

Jacquees performed on the Chevrolet Main Stage approximately an hour before the State Fair Classic football game began between Grambling State and Prairie View A&M. The R&B singer performed many of his popular singles like “Come Thru”, “B.E.D.” and his new single “Your Peace” featuring Lil Baby. 

He stepped on stage for his performance with an interesting outfit choice. The Atlanta star wore a yellow button up shirt that had several smiling emoji faces on it. He wore the shirt open and had a white tank top underneath. As for his pants, he wore black jeans that were custom painted with different words like “90s’ and other smaller printed text. His long dreads were pulled back as he had a black baseball cap on. He was sporting diamond jewelry with several bracelets on his wrist, a watch, and necklaces that shimmered in the hot Texas sun. 

Jacquees came on to the stage with lots of energy screaming “Dallas make some noise!!!” 

The crowd cheered as he began performing ‘You Belong to Someone Else” featuring Dej Loaf. 

After singing this song he transitioned into another one of his well-known songs “Won’t Waste Your Time”. The crowd surrounding the Chevrolet Main Stage sang along to his lyrics.

The R&B singer continued his performance singing his feature on TK Kraviz song “Ocean”. 

“Can I take a dive in your ocean,” the crowd sang along. 

Jacuqees showed off his vocal range while singing these lyrics. 

Jacquees took a short break as he drank water and took off his emoji button up shirt. He returned to the stage with his lively energy even in the scorching hot sun and performed one of his most popular songs “B.E.D.”. 

He added subtle dance moves across the stage and had two male backup dancers keeping his energy up. 

The crowd sang along to his lyrics with him in unison “Rollie wrist I’m the sh*t, 21 with no kids,” Jacquees sang.

Jacquees flaunted his Rolex watch as he twirled his wrist around during this portion of the song. 

Jacquees also performed one of my favorite songs of his entitled “At the Club” featuring Dej Loaf. He used his wide vocal range to kill the chorus “Met her in the club, All the ballers showing love, Can you party with a thug, I’m just trying to show you love,” Jacquees sang. 

During the middle of the song he shouted out the crowd.

“I see a lot of black and gold in the crowd…I see you Grambling,” Jacquees sang. “I see a lot of purple and gold too. I see you Prairie View.”

Jacquees ended his performance screaming, “Thank you Dallas, King of R&B is out.”

Overall I would rate his performance a 8 our of 10. He performed a lot of his older songs, some that I was not familiar with. Jacquees did a good job spinning up his popular songs like “Come Thru”, “B.E.D” and “You”. 

I wish he interacted with the crowd a little bit more. He could of had some fans come up on stage with him. 

I also think he should of performed some of his popular remixes like his spin on Ella Mai’s Trip.

Overall he had a solid performance.
