Urban contemporary foursome Jagged Edge re-team with production kingpin Jermaine Dupri for 2007's BABY MAKIN' PROJECT. As the man who gave the group their start, Dupri is in a special position to help Jagged Edge put together their first release on their own label, the Def Jam-affiliated 581 Musiz Group. BABY MAKIN' PROJECT files off the hip-hop edge that dominates so much contemporary R&B in favor of old-school balladry. Inspired as much by classic Motown soul as by 1980s new jack swing, Jagged Edge offer up a genuine R&B album filled with songs tailor-made for candlelit dinners and afterwards.

Put A Little Umph In It ft. Ashanti--Produced by Jermaine Dupri and Manuel Seal, this 1st single, which made it to #49 on the R&B charts, is one of J.E.'s most risque songs with its constant sexual refrences. Although it didn't make it far chart-wise, looking at Youtube and talking to various people, this is one of them freaky songs that folks get they dance on to to make it a special night. Not as strong as Good Luck Charm, but it's a good single. A-
Whole Town Laughing--Produced by Sick Cents and J.E.'s 2nd single, which radio isn't supporting, this song has that quality, R&B sound to it. All of the pieces of the song flow and meld together. The B-section is good, and the harmonies are tight, which is usually the case with most of their songs. It talks about a town laughing at the main male character because of his infidelity and making stupid choices. I really like the bridge or break-down of the song. One thing I'm trying to figure out is why radio isn't supporting this one. A
Me That's Who--Produced by Sick Cents and which should be a single. The chorus is just infectious and tight. It has that conventional J.E. sound to it. The vocals are dead-on. It just talks about being truly committed to a person and being the one WHO they can count on. A+
Get This--Produced by Jermaine Dupri and Manuel Seal, this song follows in the vein of Put A Little Umph In It, except that it's a little more mature and confident-sounding. It really fits J.E.'s sound and vibe without sounding as if they're trying too hard. The arrangements on the song are tight as well. A
I'll Be Damned--Produced by Jermaine Dupri and Manuel Seal, here J.E. talks about being damned if they're just going to give up and walk away. This follows the same vein as the preceding songs except, for me, it's way too short. It slightly reminds me of one of their songs from Jagged Little Thrill. A+
Can't Get Right--Produced by Sick Cents, because this one doesn't sound as similar to the previous ones, I really don't listen to it much. It's not a bad song at all, but it seems to interrupt the flow and vibe that the other ones have presented back-to-back. I think that it is a weaker track. B
Way To Say I Love you--Produced by Jermaine Dupri and Manuel Seal, this is J.E.'s version of bubblegum, ballad music. It's something about the song that reminds me of a piece of candy or something, but it's delectable literally. It's a nice song to play for one you love. The arrangements, harmonies, girl singing n the background, make this a killer track. It's another one that's way too short. A+
Sunrise--Produced by Sick Cents, I'm not feeling this song as much as the others. Like Can't Get Right, it changes the vibe and sound of the CD. It's a decent song to get one worked up in the bedroom, but it's not my favorite. B-
Round and Round--Produced by Crakpot, this song sounds more like the previous ones except that I really can't get into it that much. It's something about that doesn't work as well as the others. It's like something in it is more interrupting, but it works. B+
Turn u On--Produced by Selasi, J.E.'s misstep--this song should not have been included. The vocoder and the sound to it just don't work for me at all. It's a horrible cut. C+
Overall, this is one of the best CDs of 2007. It helps that Jagged Edge is my favorite musical group. The first half of the CD is really cohesive and fits altogether better than any of their previous CDs have for a while. The only problem is that there are not enough singles on the CD, which may be a good thing because on some of their CDs, it seems they were more single-focused than CD-focused. I enjoy this one a lot. A nice stocking stuffer or gift-giver.
With some dance bumpers and their melodic slow jams they aim to please with their signature sound that has kept them above water after all these years. They have such great chemistry together that shines through and through in their voices.
All the songs on this effort standout and keep you wanting more from Jagged Edge. This is a must have for any JE fan or anyone that is a fan of good R&B!

If you want to hear some real Baby makin music you should try that group "Silk". They have a CD called "Tonight". That joint is sooo HOTT and would definately put you in the mood for some love makin. This CD does not do that. It just sounds like regular R&B but still good.
