For all its controversy, Jacquees's "King Of R&B" debate has ignited a very necessary fire within the genre as of late, and apparently, we're getting new offerings as a result.
The latest veteran to give young Que a run for his money happens to be none other than Bobby V ("Slow Down," "Tell Me"), who now returns with the aptly-titled "King Me" as Bobby issues a melodic warning as he asserts: "No autotune can't save ya/I'm the R&B savior/Been independent all these years/Pull up the same numbers but you got a deal."
In the track's hook, Bobby V, whose eighth studio album arrived this year, directly addresses the ongoing topic of just who is the king of what, and quite honestly, while "R&Beef" was coined as a meme-worthy joke, it may turn out to be a well of strong outputs if wielded correctly.
I've been hearin' niggas talk about
Who the greatest on the ground
El Chapo on them keys
Kingpin, here I am
I don't think you understand me
Politics in the way of my GRAMMYs
