We all know I love me some Baltimore, Maryland. After spending almost 6 years on the Eastside of Baltimore, from Parkville to Down the Hill, to my stomping grounds of Aisquith and North Ave; Babeeeeeeeee, Baltimore is that city. That one that you Love and Hate at the same time. LoL!
Just in time for the Holidays, one of my all time FAVORITE Legendary R&B group, Dru Hill has released a new visual for “Favorite Time of Year” and Christmas EP entitled “Christmas in Baltimore”for the fans.
The 8-track project was produced by Grammy award-winning writer/producer Troy Taylor of Songbook Entertainment on their signature label, Dru Hill Entertainment, and is being distributed by Empire Distribution.
Highly anticipated, Christmas in Baltimore marks Dru Hill’s fifth studio project and its first with Empire. It precedes another brand new studio album to be released in 2018. For the EP, Taylor and the super-soulful vocalists of Dru Hill have come together to give fans Christmas like they’ve never heard it before! From the classic “Silent Night” to the modern and slightly explicit “Tis the Season,” it’s literally an album you’ll have to download to believe.
“We’ve always wanted to do a Christmas album, and we knew our fans have been waiting,” says the group, “This year, it just all came together and we decided to invite everybody in for that authentic Baltimore holiday experience…you won’t find another Christmas album like this, we guarantee it.”
A snippet of its first radio single, “Favorite Time of the Year” was released on the group’s official Instagram page on November 10th to rave reviews. Fans have been waiting eagerly since the teaser and were finally able to bring the long awaited music home with their November 24th release.
Comprised of members Tamir “Nokio” Ruffin, Mark “SisQo” Andrews, Larry “Jazz” Anthony, and Antwuan “Tao” Simpson, Dru Hill first rose to fame in 1996 with their debut single, “Tell Me” and they only add to their legendary music library with Christmas in Baltimore after boasting some of the biggest selling R&B songs of all time, including “5 steps”, “In My Bed”, “Never Make a Promise”, “How Deep Is Your Love”, “These are the Times”, and “We’re Not Making Love No More”. In a career that has spanned two decades, they have sold over 40 million records worldwide.
As they gear up to celebrate Christmas with their fans, they also have more exciting surprises in store for 2018!! A new album is on the horizon.
