He's synonymous with women's underpants, bleached blonde hair, and early 2000s strip club soundtracks. But before Sisqó went solo and opened up about his thong fetish, he was a founding member of Dru Hill.
While many feared that "Thong Song" would ultimately crush the possibility of a Dru Hill reunion, diehard Sisqó fans remained hopeful. In 2010, their positive vibes paid off.
That year, the Baltimore, Maryland R&B group released InDRUpendance Day and began playing gigs together again. Later this month, Dru will share a stage with baby-making music royalty Kelly Price for the Forever R&B concert at the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables.
Price's latest record, Kelly, was released a little over a year ago, and it was nominated for Best R&B Album at the 2012 Grammy Awards.
She didn't win, but Price did manage to score a duet with Whitney Houston a few days before the awards.
In fact, the surprise appearance at Price's pre-Grammy party was Houston's final performance. The two women sang a song about Jesus while Prince called Houston a "class act."
Three days later, Houston accidentally drowned.
"Things people want to allude to are not what I saw," Price told Rolling Stone shortly after Houston's death, defending her friend against accusations of wild drug use. "There was no craziness going on, absolutely none of it."
