Sisqo's suggestive "Thong Song" was one of the biggest dancefloor hits of 2000. Getting his start as part of R&B superstars Dru Hill, Sisqo took a leave of absence to launch his solo career with the album UNLEASH THE DRAGON, which became a huge success and established him as an artist in his own right. He also participated in the various Dru Hill reunion tours that took place after his original hiatus.
It seems that all one has to do in R&B is maintain the status quo and the fans will open their hearts and wallets. Critics might yearn for innovation, but as song after song parades by in a blurring montage of predictability, it would appear that simply coloring within the lines is what the public wants. Into this realm walks Dru Hill as singer Sisqó with his maiden solo effort. Arguments will now be heard about how a solo record from the lead singer of an otherwise anonymous group differs from a record from said anonymous group. Who cares? Sisqó can sing and work the emotional heart out of the songs on Unleash the Dragon. We're talking getting the job done right and within those confines Sisqó does that, with an appealing growl and love-man swagger. --Amy Linden
