Jodeci (Jō'-dě-sē), also known as, The Bad Boys of R&B, is an American R&B quartet. Possessed with a singing style that integrates R&B, soul, gospel, and new jack swing genres; they enjoyed chart-topping success during the early to mid 90’s Hip-Hop scene. Consisting of two sets of brothers from Charlotte, North Carolina: the Haileys (Joel; aka JoJo and Cedric; aka K-Ci) and the DeGrates (Donald; aka DeVante Swing and Dalvin aka; Mr. Dalvin); the group's name is a combination of the names from all four members (Jo-De-Ci). Fusing the feisty vocals of the Haileys', joined with the DeGrates' production-musical genius, earned the group three multiplatinum albums until their departure into occasional obscurity, lasting from 1995 to 2015. The Hailey brothers have also performed together, beyond Jodeci, as the duo, K-Ci & JoJo, to great acclaim and further chart success.
