Biography

Jagged Edge is an American R&B group. Signed through Jermaine Dupri's So So Def Recordings to Columbia Records from 1997 to 2002, the group has had a number of hit singles, many of which are produced by Dupri. The group's members include identical twin lead singers Brandon and Brian Casey as well as Kyle Norman and Richard Wingo. In addition to writing the bulk of the group's material, the Casey brothers have also written for Usher, Nivea and Toni Braxton.

Brandon and Brian Casey, formerly known as Case Dinero and Brasco, respectively, were born on October 13, 1975 in Hartford, Connecticut. Kyle Norman, formerly known as Quick, was born on February 26, 1976 in Decatur, Georgia, and Richard Wingo, formerly known as "Wingo Dollar$" and a native of College Park, Georgia, was born on September 3, 1975. Wingo was a late addition to the group after the departure of an original member Al, he was added after Kandi Burruss of Xscape recommended he be added. Burruss was also the one who brought the group to the attention of Dupri, who signed them to his Columbia Records distributed imprint, So So Def Recordings.

A Jagged Era and J.E. Heartbreak
Jagged Edge began their mainstream recording career with the single "The Way That You Talk". They followed this in 1997 with the album, A Jagged Era which managed to go gold featuring the singles "I Gotta Be" and "The Way That You Talk". "I Gotta Be" which was written by the twins, reached #11 on the R&B charts and #23 on the Hot 100.
Following up their debut album, Jagged Edge released J.E. Heartbreak in 2000. The album was the group's breakthrough album with several popular singles. The album went double platinum and had the hit single "Let's Get Married" which topped the R&B charts and reached #11 on the Hot 100. The album's second single, "He Can't Love You" (released January 18, 2000) had similar success, reaching #3 on the R&B charts and #15 on the Hot 100. It also featured the track "Promise" which, albeit a late single coming out in 2000, reached #1 on the R&B charts and #9 on the Hot 100.

Jagged Little Thrill and Hard
The group's third release, Jagged Little Thrill, was released in 2001 and went platinum. Its success was in large part, due to the up-tempo "Where The Party At," which reached #1 on the R&B charts and #3 on the Hot 100, the group's highest charting single.
Jagged Edge's fourth album, Hard, was released in 2003 and went gold. The album's single "Walked Outta Heaven" performed well on the charts, reaching #6 on the Hot 100 and #2 on the R&B charts.

Jagged Edge and Baby Makin' Project
Jagged Edge's fifth album, Jagged Edge, was released on May 9, 2006 by Columbia/Sony Music Urban and it went gold. It featured the hit urban single "Good Luck Charm". Also released on November 21, 2006 was The Hits collection featuring Jagged Edge's biggest hits plus a few album tracks. The album shared the single "Stunnas" that's also on the Jagged Edge album as a bonus track.
Jagged Edge parted ways with Columbia Records shortly after the release of their self-titled fifth album and signed back with Jermaine Dupri. Dupri re-signed the group to So So Def through Island Def Jam, which handles the distribution for So So Def, and where Jermaine Dupri was president of the urban division. The group was also granted their own record label called 581 Muzik Groupe which was credited on their album, Baby Makin' Project.
The only single released off Baby Makin' Project was "Put a Little Umph in it" featuring Ashanti. It reached #49 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart. The group recorded so much material for the project that they have saved eight of the tracks for another album, a release date for which has not been announced.

The Remedy
Jagged Edge signed to Slip-N-Slide Records in May 2009. The album titled "The Remedy" was released June 21, 2011. The project had one collaboration with Rick Ross. The first warm-up single from "The Remedy" is "Tip of My Tongue" featuring Slip 'N Slide Records' labelmate Trina and Gucci Mane. A second warm-up single, "Lay You Down", was released before the "official" single titled "Baby".
