More Info

Jagged Edge: Rough-but-smooth male vocal quartet Jagged Edge formed in Atlanta, consisting of identical twin brothers Brandon "Case Dinero" Casey and Brian "Brasco" Casey, who had moved from their native Hartford, CT; Kyle Norman (aka "Quick"), whom they'd met through church activities; and Richard Wingo (aka "Wingo Dollar"), a late addition to the group suggested by Xscape's Kandi Burruss, who took their demo to superproducer Jermaine Dupri.

Jagged Edge signed to Dupri's So So Def label and in the summer of 1997 released their debut single, "The Way That You Talk," featuring appearances by Dupri and Da Brat; it reached the Top 40 of the R&B chart and was also a pop chart entry. Early in 1998, Jagged Edge released their first album, A Jagged Era, which went gold and spawned the Top 20 R&B, Top 40 pop hit "Gotta Be." Their next single, "He Can't Love U," appeared in the fall of 1998 and reached the Top Five of the R&B chart and the Top 20 of the pop chart, going gold in the process. It prefaced the group's second album, J.E. Heartbreak, which topped the R&B chart and hit the Top Ten of the pop chart, selling over 2,000,000 copies and spawning the number one R&B hits "Let's Get Married" (also Top 20 pop) and "Promise" (also Top Ten pop).

By the time of the release of Jagged Edge's third album, Jagged Little Thrill, in late June 2001, its leadoff single, "Where the Party At" (featuring Nelly), was nearing the R&B Top Ten and was in the pop Top 40. 2003's Hard and 2006's Jagged Edge followed.

Several months after releasing the RIAA-Certified Gold self-titled album Jagged Edge, the group parted ways with label Columbia Records, and signed to Jermaine Durpi's Island Urban Music, a subsidiary of Island Def Jam Music Group. Stay tuned for more information on Jagged Edge's forthcoming album, yet to be titled.

Ginuwine: Ginuwine emerged onto the Hip-Hop scene in the mid-90's and changed the game with some of the craziest beats and hottest lyrics ever introduced to the genre. Synonymous with Timbaland, Missy Elliott, and Aaliyah, the hip-hop collective released hit single after single often collaborating and performing together. The multi-Platinum recording star recently released his seventh album, Elgin, in 2011 and has scheduled an extensive and intimate concert tour to promote the disc.

The DC native got his start working in the creative hip-hop outfit, Swing Mob, in the early '90s. The collective was led by Jodeci frontman, DeVante Swing, and featured Timbaland, Missy, and several other future hip-hop stars. Timbaland produced and co-wrote many of the tracks for Ginuwine's debut album Ginuwine….The Bachelor, which became an instant hit. The lead single, "Pony", is now an R&B throwback and continues to receive radio play. Ginuwine's debut was certified multi-Platinum and he became an overnight success story. Ginuwine continued to collaborate with Timbaland and Missy on his sophomore effort 100% Ginuwine, which was released in 1999. The album is his highest selling to-date and is also certified double-Platinum. The single, "So Anxious", was nominated for a Soul Train Award and Ginuwine tour dates were scheduled nationally to promote the disc.

Ginuwine returned in 2001 with The Life which featured the #1 R&B single - "Differences". Ginuwine was also featured on the #1 P. Diddy remix, "I Need A Girl Part II", and he starred in the 2002 film Juwanna Man, expanding his talents onto the big screen. He released his fourth effort, The Senior, in 2003 which featured the club-banger "Hell Yeah" and he was nominated for an American Music Award for Favorite Male R&B Artist the same year. Ginuwine then made a foray into the business side of music by starting his own label - Bag Entertainment. Ginuwine tour dates were scheduled on the Ladies Night Out Tour and other live concert performances.

Since his heyday, Ginuwine has continued to record and release new material including Back II Basics in 2005, A Man's Thoughts in 2009, and his most recent effort Elgin in 2011. His current single, "Body", is the third and final cut from the album and he has been supporting the effort on the road since its release. The album was largely written by Ginuwine himself, and features two songs penned by the prolific balladeer - Diane Warren. One of the first and most creative Hip-Hop R&B performers, Ginuwine has been serving up ballads and club-bangers since "Pony" hit radio in 1995.
