Rodriquez Broadnax (born April 15, 1994), better known by his stage name Jacquees, is an American singer-songwriter from Atlanta, Georgia. Seeing the recognition as a solo artist, Jacquees additionally worked with artists, such as T.I., Travis Porter, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, Trinidad James, August Alsina and Chris Brown, among others. In 2014, Jacquees has signed a recording contract deal and its management to Cash Money Records.

Early life

At the age of 9, Jacquees found his passion for both singing and dancing, with its influences from The Jackson’s: An American Dream and The Temptations movies; imitating no less than the greatest. Jacquees participated in his first talent show, throughout his fifth grade at Canby Lane Elementary School; performing the Jackson 5′s, "I Want You Back", which he won first place. He successfully matriculated to Mary McCleod Bethune Middle School, where he continued competing in talent shows, winning every year; two at Bethune Middle and one at the Dekalb County Middle School Talent Show.Jaquees attended Towers High School in Dekalb County, Decatur Georgia.

Career

In 2007, Jacquees was introduced to Orlando Grind (who is now Jacquees' manager) and was then discovered by Dexx Lee. After years of performing throughout various talent shows, he was finally introduced to Russell "Block" Spencer, the founder and then-CEO of Block Enterainment. Jacquees worked in various different recording studios, but he merely blended with the team and wasn't given the opportunity to express his true talents. "When you see work being done around you but not for you, you tend to get discouraged," says Jacquees. At that time, Block’s focus was only rap, not R&B. It wasn’t until summer of 2009, when Block witnessed how talented Jacquees was and shifted his vision. After that Jacquees began working closely with Block Entertainment's recording studio and began gaining a few more exposure with the release of the song, titled "Krazy", a collaboration with American rapper T.I..

On March 25, 2014, Jacquees released his second EP, titled 19, independently. The EP debuted at number 15 on the US BillboardTop R&B Albums. The 11-tracks EP features guest appearances from Chris Brown, Rich Homie Quan, Lloyd and Trinidad James. On October 1, 2014, Jacquees announced that he has signed a recording contract deal with Cash Money Records. In May 2016, he released the mixtape Lost at Sea with Birdman.
