Dru Hill's hit song "Never Make a Promise" topped the U.S. R&B chart at No. 1. The song was released in 1997 and stayed in it's No. 1 spot for four weeks. It also peaked at No. 7 on the U.S. pop chart. "Never Make a Promise" was definitely a hit!
"In My Bed" was a No. 1 platinum-selling single by the group. The song peaked at No. 4 on the U.S. pop chart and spent three weeks at No. 1 on the U.S. R&B chart.
It's common for music groups to sing and dance. However, Dru Hill was one of the few male R&B groups to do it. During the late '90s and early 2000s, the group captivateed audiences with their great singing and equally fantastic dancing.
Let us tell you how "Tell Me" was an amazing song. "Tell Me" was released in 1995 and earned a gold certification from the RIAA for selling over 600,000 units domestically. The song also earned a spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and went to No. 5 on the R&B chart!
In November of 1999, the group fell apart. After the breakup, the group members went their separate ways and continued creating music. The group's breakout star Sisqo found success with his debut, Unleash the Dragon. "Thong Song" and "Incomplete" were major hits for the newly solo artist.
During the break, group member Woody decided to return to his gospel roots. The other group members had distinctive albums as well. Sisqo's was pop, Jazz's was traditional R&B, and Nokio's was hip-hop.
In 2002, the group got back together to produce their third album, Dru World Order. The group also included a new fifth member: Scola. Their single "I Should Be..." was both a top 30 top hit and top 10 R&B hit.
The group acquired a new member, Tao, after Woody officially left to continue pursuing gospel music. The new group, comprised of Sisqo, Nokio, Jazz and Tao, released their album InDRUpendence Day in 2010. Now the group continues to tour together and still creates music!
