Dru Hill is Back and the Fans are Talking

Dru Hill has released their new visual for “Favorite Time of the Year” and the fans are playing no games. This holiday themed visual is getting mixed reviews from the Dru Hill Lovers…

Before we show you the video, we must advise you that time has NOT been good to most of these members……… #TrueTea

Chileeeeeeeeeeeeee…..

Why is Sisqo still kicking and swinging like he trying out for a Jackie Chan movie?

Is there an Age Limit to when you can NO LONGER hit the “Yeet?”

Is it us, or is Woody missed dearly?

Why is the newest member so FINE and youthful? (and they are all close in age)

Is Nokia going for the David Banner effect?

Jazz……….. Dear sweet, Vocal Slating Jazz………. #WeWillStopThere

Overall, we love the song. The visual is a little bland for what we have grown to know and expect from Dru Hill. The vocals are still stellar. SisQo needs Botox. Nokia needs Just For Men. Jazz needs some Celery and Newbie needs to call us for a Date. LoL!

We love you Dru Hill…………..
