Embarking on the first of his two sold-old concerts in the UK, Jacquees brings his R&B A-game to North West London for his O2 Forum Kentish Town gig. Having heard his music over the years from his infamous track B.E.D to collaborations with the likes of Dej Loaf, Trey Songz, Ty Dolla $ign and Quavo, to name a few, he is synonyms with fully fledged R&B scene in the states.
When it comes to UK R&B the scene isn’t as thriving and unfortunately doesn’t have as much demand as it does in the states. However, without out a doubt, the R&B heads cleared their diary and celebrated all its goodness at the show. Collecting a massive wave of screams and serge of people pressing record on their phones Jacquees put on quite the show. Joining him on stage he had two accompanying dancers where they in unison would performance slick dance routines to the likes 23, All My Life, and one of the stand-out, crowd favourites of the night B.E.D.
In line with his stage presence, his voice was on a par with his performance and he showcased his smooth and silky vocals. Stripping it back away from more choreography driven numbers it was just him and the microphone where he could demonstrate his radiant vocal delivery.
It wasn’t his first night in London, across the river the O2 became the O3 and Drake performed an incredible set of back to back dates. Jacquees set foot on stage the night before where he joined forces with support act Tory Lanez. With the O2 Kentish Town website saying that their will be ‘special guests’ at the show it wasn’t long till I put two and two together and without disappointment, fans were taken aback with Jacquees introducing Tory Lanez on stage. Performing their single Slow Grind, which samples Pretty Ricky Grind With Me, he also performed single Talk To Me.
With the atmosphere going through the roof Jacquees filled out the venue leaving fans singing in unison from the front of to all the way to the back.
If you didn’t get a chance to watch his show make sure you listen to his latest project 4275.
