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. Jodeci consists of two sets of brothers, Cedric and Joel Hailey of Charlotte, North Carolina and Donald and Dalvin DeGrate of Hampton, Virginia; 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 1996 to 2014. The Hailey brothers have also performed together as the duo, K-Ci & JoJo, to greater acclaim and further chart success.
