Born as Rodriquez Jacquees Broadnax, Jacquees is an American rapper, songwriter, and producer. Born in Decatur, Georgia, he signed a deal with Cash Money Records in 2015. That is when his career took off. In 2016, his single B.E.D. charted on the Billboard charts for 7 weeks. It peaked at Number 69. So, how much is Jacquee’s cash flow? Was that single enough to earn him a million dollars?
Let’s take a look at Jacquees’s career path and journey. Over the years, he worked with popular artists such as Chris Brown, Young Thug, Lil Baby, Trey Songz, and many others. That helped him build a popular brand and earnings. As of August 2020, Jacquees’s fortune is more than $6 million.
Career Ups and Downs
Rodriquez discovered his passion for music at the age of 9 years. He grew up listening to Michael Jackson and The Temptations. That inspired him to sing and dance. During his middle school years, he actually performed at various talent shows. And he won them all. Agents started calling him and his parents.
Even when he was young, his parents encouraged him to learn music professionally. They hired a vocal coach, Jan Smith, to teach the young kid. And they paid a hefty price for that, $200 per hour. But eventually, their investment paid off. Jacquees now makes millions, and it is all thanks to the support of his family.
During his talent show performances, Rodriquez often performed songs by Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5. In 2007, he met with a former manager, Orlando Grind. He managed him for the talent shows before Russell Block Spencer took over. Russell is the founder and served as CEO at the time of Block Entertainment.
The two began working on music together. But in the beginning, the relationship didn’t go smoothly. Block put the focus on rap music, and Jacquees wanted R&B music. But after a while, Russell noticed the kid’s talent for R&B music and it changed the whole perception.
As a result of their collaboration, Jacquees released his debut album, I am Jacquees. Krazy, a song featuring T.I led the album in popularity.
But Rodriquez still felt the studio doesn’t do him justice. So he tried something else. In 2014, he released his second EP independently. Titled 19, the EP debuted at Number 15 on the Billboard R&B albums. Some of the guest appearances on the EP include Chris Brown, Trinidad James, Lloyd, and Rich Homie Quan.
The success of his EP led to a recording deal with Cash Money Records. In October the same year, Jacquees signed the deal. The next year, he did a collaboration with Birdman on the EP Lost at Sea.
By the end of 2016, Jacquees released his most successful single to date, B.E.D.
The single peaked at Number 69 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Awards and Achievements
Jacquees is a relatively young artist. He does have a million on his bank account. But he hasn’t won an award yet. The closest he got was in 2018. The single B.E.D. earned a nomination by the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
As of August 2020, Jacquees’ fortune is between $4 and $6 million. He started his music career in 2010. Since then, he has released a couple of singles, EPs, mixtapes, and albums.
Jacquees is part of the music industry for several years by now. He accomplished a lot in record sales.
He is still a young and relatively new artist. He has many years ahead of him to perform and earn even more money.
His most popular mixtapes include Round of Applause, Fan Affiliated, Quemix, Quemix 2, Mood, Since You Playin’, and more.
