It has come as a bit of a surprise, legendary R&B group Jagged Edge have just released the new album “Layover”. You can stream the album in its entirety now via Spotify below.
The release of the album follows the group’s appearance on TV One’s show “Unsung”, which just aired this past Sunday, July 9th. There had been no prior buildup or warning that this album was coming, aside from a vague announcement on the group’s social media pages.
“Layover” is Jagged Edge’s ninth studio album overall, and the first they released since “JE Heartbreak 2” back in 2014. The album contains 16 tracks of previously unheard songs.
Check out the music below.

We all have been fans of the group since they first made their appearance on the scene back in the 90s.
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 U” (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 reached #1 on the R&B charts and #9 on the Hot 100. We’re so happy to see the group is still doing their thing on the music scene and we support them all the way no matter what!
We got so much love for Jagged Edge!
