SisQo, Nokio, Jazz, and new member Tao (pronounced tay-oh) equate the perfect musical blend of soulful R&B, rock, hip-hop, and romance. The ultra talented foursome are armed and ready to re-emerge into the industry and take the world by storm with their their soldout performances and fourth album “InDRUpendence Day” which harbors “Love MD” leading as its first single. “InDRUpendence Day” is formulated to showcases their growth and individual personalities; this is guaranteed to be another hit for the already multi-platinum group.
Years from now when it’s all said and done, music historians will surely debate the contributions of those who majorly impacted the genre of R&B. Icons guaranteed to be mentioned are industry stalwarts such
as The Temptations, The Four Tops, The O’Jay’s, The Jackson Five, New Edition, Guy, Jodeci, and Boyz II Men. However, any list that does not include the incomparable Dru Hill is grossly inaccurate. The torch bearers responsible for carrying R&B music into the new millennium was the labor of love for four immensely talented young singers who were and remain the quintessential example of superior entertainers. From their first single, “Tell Me” (what you want), Dru Hill has been giving fans what they need in the form of numerous classic love ballads and infectious dance songs that have provided countless beautiful memories for millions upon millions of music lovers the world over. Named after a popular Baltimore park, Dru Hill is comprised of “NOKIO”, “SISQO”, “SMOKE”, and “BLACK”.
In a career that spans over two decades, Dru Hill, under the steadfast leadership of their long-time and trusted manager Kevin Peck, has accomplished literally everything an R&B/Pop group could dream of achieving. From having a string of Top 40 #1 hit singles, multi-platinum selling albums, movie and television
appearances, headlining sold out concert tours #round the world, to selling an eye-popping 40 million records worldwide, their star power has never been in question. Proof of their immense global following was most evident when their reality show entitled “Keith Sweat’s Platinum House” became the highest rated series in the Centric network’s history, proving their critics wrong that even after a significant absence from the public eye, fans still can’t get enough of Dru Hill.
With a music library fit for royalty, boasting some of the biggest selling and most popular R&B songs of all time to include “Tell Me”, “5 Steps”, “In My Bed”, “Never Make a Promise”, “How Deep Is Your Love”, “These are the Times”, and “We’re Not Making Love No More”, they are considered by many music experts to be key players that helped to define the 90’s.
Additionally, the group’s music has helped tremendously to bolster the sale of movies and soundtracks with their songs often having been the lead single for blockbuster films like “Eddie” starring Academy Award-winning actress Whoopi Goldberg (Tell Me), “How to be a Player” starring comedian Bill Bellamy (She’s a Bad Mama Jama), “Rush Hour” starring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker (How Deep is Your Love), Wild Wild West starring mega superstar Will Smith (Wild Wild West), and “Soul Food” starring former Miss America Vanessa Williams (We’re Not Making Love No More).
Since welcoming newest members, Playaʼs Smoke and Black in 2018, the group h#s only risen to new levels of greatness. Lending their incredible singing range to the highly anticipated sixth studio album, Second Coming, Playa adds another dimension of sound to the already-immaculate harmony that Dru Hill is renowned for, while the timeless sounds of its founding members remain in perfect sync. Nokioʼs genius as a songwriter, producer, and singer continues to elevate while SisQoʼs musical brilliance shines brighter with every performance!
As the ever-dynamic quartet gears up to release their new album, itʼs clear that theyʼve just gotten started.
