Our friends over at ‘Singer’s Room‘ caught up with Jagged Edge recently, sitting down with R&B force to discuss their long waited comeback and the current state of their genre.
Opening up on their successful run and their plans to recreate it in today’s industry, the group also shared their thoughts on the absence of new R&B groups on Pop’s scene, and the negative affect it has on the representation of Black acts and their music.
Their words below…
On the possible resurgence of R&B Groups, they shared:
I don’t know if it will, but is it necessary, I think it is. This has been our art form, when I say our, I mean black people, in terms of quartets and trios, that’s something we’ve always been into, it’s been ours for so long. To see it just dissipate, I don’t think that’s good for the genre itself, and when I say genre I mean black music. I don’t know if there will be one, but there should be, we should do whatever we can to help it; that’s what this project does. It shows record labels that we still sell records, there’s still interest… its gratification in it.
