Dru Hill is an American R&B group whose repertoire includes soul, hip hop soul, and gospel music. The group formed in Baltimore in 1992 and is still active, having recorded seven Top 40 hits, including their R&B No. 1 hits “In My Bed,” “Never Make a Promise,” and “How Deep Is Your Love.” They won Best R&B/Soul Album – Group, Band, or Duo and Best R&B/Soul Single – Group, Band, or Duo in 1998. Most recently, the group was honored at the 2022 Black Music Honors.

Son of jazz cellist Adbul Wadud and cousin of singer Chrisette Michele, DeVaughn has lots of musical blood, however even in pre-school DeVaughn’s mother said he had an affinity towards music. After winning a talent competition at the Washington DC nightclub named Bar Nun, CEO of Soul World Entertainment Cliff Jones asked DeVaughn to write a song for soul quartet Dru Hill. In doing so the singer caught the attention of DJ Jazzy Jeff and Roc-A-Fella A&R guy Kenny Burns, which led to DeVaughn being signed by Jive Records in 2002. After the successful single releases of “Guess Who Loves You More” and “You” DeVaughn released his major label debut “The Love Experience” on June 28, 2005. The album received critical acclaim, sold around 250,000 copies and reached No. 46 in the Billboard 200. The music of DeVaughn has been compared to that of Dwele, D’Angelo, and Marvin Gaye, with his mix of R&B, neo-soul, and soft rock.
