During the span of the '90s when R&B groups ran amuck on the pop charts alongside the boy band and teen idol phenomenons, Dru Hill captured more than their fair share of the audience, thanks in no small part to Sisq¢'s solo smash "Thong Song," which sustained their momentum for a little bit longer and broadened their audience beyond their loyal and established R&B fan base. And before the "Thong Song" entered the consciousness of mainstream America and desperate housewives everywhere, Dru Hill racked up a string of hits like "Tell Me," "How Deep Is Your Love," and "Never Make a Promise" that kept them in the top of the R&B charts for a good span of the late '90s. Those hits and more are included here, but after only issuing four full-lengths, the selections tend to run dry after a spell, hence the inclusion of Sisq¢'s two solo hits. That said, everything the casual listener could ever want or need is included on Hits. It's a good place to collect all of the important moments from the group's career if you hadn't been one of the countless fans who purchased all of their releases already. ~ Rob Theakston
