TV One’s UNSUNG begins its new season highlighting the journey of one R&B’s most dynamic quartets with super-group Dru Hill on Sunday, February 23, 2020 at 10 p.m. ET/9C.
Right On! fan faves, Dru Hill, were four childhood friends from Baltimore – Sisqo, Nokio, Jazz, and Woody took the music industry by storm in the ’90s with a combination of old school vocal harmonies and effortless charisma. And when their debut album produced four top charting singles – “Tell Me”, “In My Bed”, “Never Make a Promise”, and “Five steps” – Dru Hill positioned themselves as a group destined for major success. And they got an extra boost with the remarkable popularity of Sisqo’s solo records. But despite a bounty of top ten hits, the group was bedeviled by clashes with their record label, one of which culminated in a public brawl, and internal problems within the group, including drug abuse and weight issues, which ultimately resulted in the departure of two members. For all that, Dru Hill keeps on keeping on, and remains one of the most beloved singing groups performing today. In this Unsung episode, they tell the full story of their long and winding journey.
The rest of the Unsung season is just as exciting.The season continues with memorable stories of influential artists including rap’s first female star MC Roxanne Shante; singer/actor Christopher Williams; funk and disco band Skyy; the “Mother of Freestyle” Shannon; Grammy Award-winning crooner behind the 1972 number one single “Me and Mrs. Jones,” Billy Paul; vocal powerhouse Betty Wright, best known for the 70s hit single “Clean Up Woman;” multi-Grammy Award-winning musician Al Jarreau; and Atlanta hip hop quartet Goodie Mob.
