K-Ci & JoJo will ride the momentum of a "Crazy" few months into a 17-city North American tour to kick off April 19 in Houston.
The R&B duo will promote its third album, X, named after the 10 years the two brothers have been singing together, including their work in the group Jodeci.
Cedric "K-Ci" Hailey and Joel "JoJo" Hailey have seen both highs and lows recently. Their single "Crazy," which appeared on X and the "Save the Last Dance" soundtrack, has been their biggest hit since 1996's "All My Life," the sultry ballad from the triple-platinum album Love Always.
But the brothers have garnered equal attention for K-Ci's alleged display of his genitals at a radio station festival in December. Los Angeles police investigated the singer for several months and arrested him on March 13 on 23 counts of indecent exposure and one count of lewd conduct (see "K-Ci Charged With Indecent Exposure, Lewd Conduct"). He is scheduled to be arraigned in Los Angeles on April 11, eight days before the tour begins.
K-Ci, who recently declared his innocence, also faces charges of nuisance, infliction of emotional distress and negligence in a civil case filed by one of the families in attendance at KIIS-FM's Jingle Ball, December 16 at the Shrine Auditorium.
Before heading out on tour, K-Ci & JoJo plan to continue work on an upcoming Jodeci album, which the duo recently said would be released by the end of the year.
