An R&B fight is brewing - bring it on!
He went on: “I want everyone to know that no R&B artist can touch my skill. To this day, nobody can outsing me. I will sing anybody under the table.”
Sisqo‘s outburst should come as no surprise since he’s been bragging about his talent in a number of US publications during his promotion of his sophomore solo album, ‘Return Of Dragon’. Talking to Time Out New York, the singer openly derided up-and-coming nu classic soul artist Bilal, quipping: “Is that a dude or a chick? He sounds a little feminine here. You gotta have a little ruggedness. Even Prince got a little bass in his joint when he goes low.”
However, Sisqo‘s comments haven’t endeared him to music fans – his new Stateside single ‘Can I Live’ entered the US Billboard R&B and hiphop charts at Number 97.
Many believe the source of Sisqo‘s arrogance stems from the success of last year’s ‘Thong Song’ smash from his ‘Unleash The Dragon’ solo debut, which shifted four million copies but didn’t win the coveted Grammy for Best Song.
He said: “‘The Thong Song’ was one of the biggest songs of last year, and I still lose to Destiny’s Child. But when you ask anyone which Destiny’s Child song won, they don’t know. How can a song you can’t name win?”
