The self-proclaimed “King of R&B” recently shared a photo of himself on Instagram where he reenacted Muhammad Ali’s famous underwater photo.
“Float like a butterfly, sting like a Bee – Muhammad Ali,” Jacquees wrote as his caption. “Miami 1961. Miami 2019 #Round2”
In the famous photo of famed boxer Muhammad Ali, Ali is in a fight stance underwater wearing white and black boxing shorts.
In Jacquees’ photo, the R&B crooner is standing underwater, similar to Ali but he’s holding onto a microphone, wearing the white and black boxing shorts.
In Jacquees’ caption, he hashtagged “Round 2” which is in reference to his new upcoming project, which is slated to be released this summer, according to the singer’s Instagram page bio.
