Big stations are supporting the album including: KRNB Dallas, KJLH Los Angeles, WSRB Chicago, WCGI Chicago and WBLS New York.

About Jagged Edge
Formed in Atlanta, Georgia, Jagged Edge (JE) consists of identical twin brothers Brandon Casey and Brian Casey, long-time friend Kyle Norman and later addition Richard Wingo. Having both soulful and gospel backgrounds, Jagged Edge maintains they’ve always been fans of groups like New Edition, NEXT, Play and Jodeci.
Jagged Edge released their first album, A Jagged Era, in 1998. The album went gold and triggered the Top 20 R&B and Top 40 Pop hit, “Gotta Be.” Their next single, “He Can’t Love U,” appeared in the fall of 1998 and propelled the group into cross-over international fame and stardom. Although considered a “sleeper” single, it was on the Top 5 R&B chart, Top 20 Pop chart, and subsequently went Gold in the process.
An outpour of fan appreciation continued to follow Jagged Edge upon their release of the follow-up album, J.E. Heartbreak. That album not only solidified JE’s place in R&B music history, but the unforgettable songs on the album would also follow JE today. J.E. Heartbreak topped the R&B and Pop charts, while selling over 2,000,000 copies—an impossible feat in today’s industry. The album is most famous for number one R&B hits such as “Let’s Get Married” and “Promise.” Both singles skyrocketed up the Top 10 Pop charts and lived there for an unprecedented number of weeks. In the following quarter of its release, J.E. won 5 Billboard Awards and 3 Soul Train Awards, including Best Album and Best Single for “Let’s Get Married.”
