Jacquees is known for remixing and covering hit records. Some of these covers tend to be better than the original. Remember when he Quemixed Ella Mai’s song “Trip” back in 2019, which had a lot of fans listening to his version more than hers.
During an interview on Big Facts podcast, the singer said he reached to Ella Mai about remixing the song prior to releasing it.
“I think I dm’d her like I love “Trip” Ima redo the song I think that’s what I said. I remember when I put it out, she commented on it and put all the fire on it. I just think feel like a couple people made her feel like I was doing something wrong,” he said. “Because she was just stepping up into the game. N***** been doing remixes and covers forever. They were trying to say that I was monetizing off the record and I wasn’t.”
He continued to say that even though there was a misunderstanding he’s will not stray away from doing remixes and covers.
“Nah, hell nah. I can’t. I was about to, but I told myself I can’t because that’s what I do. It’s like I can’t let a n****** scare me off the street. I gotta keep doing what I do that’s how I eat. I win off that. Quemix I be winning off that sh*t. I ain’t gone never stop doing that sh*t and I love to do that sh*t. It’s fun.”
