Über Dru Hill
Formed in 1995, this R&B quartet comprised Jazz, Woody, Sisqo, and Nokio -- four friends who grew up together in Baltimore. Their self-titled '96 debut fused bedroom escapades with smooth vocals and non-threatening hip-hop beats, and blew up on the strength of their first single "Tell Me." They returned in '98 with Enter The Dru. The following year Sisqo went solo, releasing Unleash The Dragon, which featured the radio-dominating smash hit "Thong Song."
