Jacquees and Birdman “MIA” Video: Watch Singer Kick Back in Miami
Despite Birdman not actually being in the visual (he's only on a few ad-libs on the song, after all,) the self-proclaimed "King of R&B" holds it down as he kicks back in Miami with some eye candy.
"Let's take a ride down Ocean/Girl we could slide to the fifteen," Jacquees sings on the smooth track. "Go get some breakfast at the Big Pink/Girl it's a vibe when you with me!"
Lost At Sea II, the follow-up to their 2016 project Lost At Sea, was released last month and it features 14 tracks, including "MIA." Since then, Jacquees has been facing a bit of backlash after claiming to be the "King of R&B," and has even had to issue an apology to legendary singer Keith Sweat for his comments.
In addition to the King of R&B backlash, a petition to stop the singer from doing any more covers of popular songs has amassed nearly 45,000 signatures since its creation by a man named Ricky Fields on Christmas Day (Dec. 25).
"As a Black Community, we have to figure out how we getting rid of Jacquees," Fields wrote in the description.
Covers Jacquees has delivered include Soul 4 Real’s “Candy Rain” and Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana,” as well as his cover cover of Ella Mai's "Trip." The latter remix was surrounded by controversy after her label, 10 Summers, had his remix removed on all streaming platforms.
