R&B super group Jagged Edge sets Sept. 25 for âBaby Making Project,â the highly anticipated album produced by Jermaine Dipri via their new label So So Def/Island (Def Jam). “The album is bedroom music; It’s freakier, risque, but not raunchy or expletive,” group member Brandon Casey tells Billboard.com. “There were so many records like that growing up with Keith Sweat and R. Kelly. Today, everything is fast, so we wanted to reintroduce ourselves and still represent.” Dupri produced the first single, “Put a Little Umph in It,” featuring Ashanti. “The song is seductive and Ashanti is sexy to death, so it made perfect sense,” explains group member Richard Wingo. “Put a Little Umph in Itâ is also featured on Singersroom with high feedback from listeners. In contention for the second single are “Me That’s Who” and “Whole Town Laughing,” both produced by the group. Other tracks include “Get This,” (“We ain’t known for the suggestive, freaky ballads, but this one is one of the few of that nature,” says Brandon), and “The Way To Say I Love You.” Jagged Edge recorded so much material for âProjectâ that they have saved eight of the tracks for another album, a release date for which has not been announced. In the meantime, JE will launch a 30-city tour of House of Blues venues to promote âProjectâ this fall. In addition, Jagged Edge recently launched its own label, 581 Records, under So So Def/Island Urban, to which they signed the girl group Bad Girl and Atlanta rapper Jimmy Two Time.
