Jagged Edge group member, Kyle Norman, was arrested following a domestic dispute with his fiancée. The singer allegedly punched and choked his fiancée, shoved her engagement ring down her throat, took her keys, and broke her cell phone. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the victim was visibly shaken when police arrived on the scene. The victim allegedly had welts under her eyes, a golf ball-sized knot in her forehead, a cut on her nose, and a blood clot in her right eye. The victim told police that Norman became upset after the couple had an argument about his drinking, and he allegedly told the victim that she was going to die tonight. Fortunately, the victim was able to escape and call the police. When the police approached Norman he said, “I need to go to jail,” and he claimed he was upset about his dad having cancer. Norman was arrested on aggravated assault, and he will be held there until he sees a judge today.
Jagged Edge released their eighth studio album, J.E. Heartbreak 2, late last year. The album was led by the hit single “Hope.” J.E. Heartbreak 2 was released through So So Def Records, and it was produced by Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox. J.E. Heartbreak 2 was the follow-up album to the group’s 2000 double-platinum selling project, J.E. Heartbreak. J.E. Heartbreak peaked at Number 8 on the Billboard 200, and went to the top of the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart. Four singles were released from the project including “Keys to the Range,” “He Can’t Love U,” “Let’s Get Married,” and “Promise.”
One of the R&B group’s most successful albums was Jagged Little Thrill, which was released in 2001. The project debuted at Number 3 on the Billboard 200, and it sold 215,000 copies in its debut week. Jagged Little Thrill is the group’s highest peaking album to date. Ironically, the album sold less copies than J.E. Heartbreak, selling just over 1.5 million copies worldwide. The album produced three singles including “Where the Party At” featuring Nelly, “Goodbye,” and “I Got It 2.” “Where the Party At” went to Number 1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip shop Singles & Tracks chart, and it reached the Number 3 position on Billboard’s Hot 100. The song is Jagged Edge’s most successful single to date.
