Earlier this year, Jacquees told Tidal that his sound was influenced by a number of RnB greats.
"I was raised by my mother and my community. It’s the East side [of Decatur], it’s different from every side," he said. "The type of music I grew up listening to and was influenced by was the Jacksons, Temptations. I used to listen to Hot Boyz, Ginuwine, Usher, Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Jodeci, Jagged Edge, Earth, Wind & Fire, Ron Isley, R. Kelly — all the classics."
In his new track with Birdman titled "Anythang," the classic RnB influenced can definitely be felt. The song is further complimented by Birdman's gravely voice which worked well with the simultaneously braggadocious and romantic vibe of the track.
When I'm with you, it's expensive
Liquor pitchers, drown when I'm with you
Money's not a problem, got different dollars on me
Me and Stunna ballin', money's steady callin'
