Jagged Edge first exploded onto the urban contemporary music scene in 1998 with the group's debut album A Jagged Era, which established them as the "Kings of Hip-Hop/Soul." Jagged Edge's breakthrough second album, 2000's J.E. Heartbreak, achieved RIAA double-platinum status, driven in part by the singles "He Can't Love U," "Promise," and the smash "Let's Get Married." A year-and-a-half after its release, the album was still on the Billboard 200 album chart. The group's third album, 2001's platinum-certified Jagged Little Thrill featured the raucous signature hit "Where The Party At" (featuring Nelly) which reached #1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks Chart and #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Jagged Edge's fourth album, Hard, debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart the week of its release in October 2003. Jagged Edge has earned ten gold, platinum, and multi-platinum certifications from the RIAA for the group's singles, albums and video.
