Overview

As the first solo spin-off from the excellent Baltimore-based R&B vocal quartet Dru Hill, Sisqo's UNLEASH THE DRAGON combines soulful singing, hip-hop beats, and solid -- even sophisticated -- dynamics. Sisqo, yeah, he's the one with the platinum-coif who resembles Rodman. Though the racy first single, "Got To Get It," posits Sisqo as an orally fixated sexpot who's so attuned to female desire he'll "kiss the lips under your navel," the record essentially uses Mary J. Blige's fine MARY as a template for remaining street and aspiring to pop. Elton John produces the sweeping "Enchantment Passing Through" while Babyface smoothes out the mid-tempo "Sexual." Throughout, Sisqo's voice is full of yearning and passion on plenty of chest-thumping sex numbers. But this is a record with upward mobility on its mind. And while it's not quite the equivalent of Lil' Kim wearing Chanel, it edges awfully close to Sisqo realizing his crossover fantasies without completely washing away the grit.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Michael Gallucci
On his debut solo album, Dru Hill's finest singer, Sisqó, explores rhythmic patterns and beats that borrow heavily from the contemporary R&B playbook, and he loads the tracks with whispered bedroom moans. Sisqó unleashes his inner dragon on the club thumper "Thong Song," beginning to sound like the ferocious soulman he fancies himself to be. Make It Hot's turn on the jittery "Got to Get It" offers some sparks.

As all the other listeners or so Sisqo's unleash the dragon has become my very (ultimate)favorite song. I really would like to know why and how Sisqo and his songs became so popular to me.I really enjoy the songs he has singed the first time I heared the songs I had a feeling that they were going to be my very favorite.

The album, the video, and the lyrics are good. Sisqo has really out done his self. Can't wait to hear the solo albums of the rest of the Dru Hill members.I purchased the album the day it came out but, unforturantely my vehicle was stolen, so I guess I'll have to buy it again. Keep up the good work SISQO Love your #1 fan -}Qirah

There are very few CD's that I will listen to the whole thing, but Sisqo's CD is bangin' from beginning to end (including the interludes)! Anyone who has not gotten that CD yet really needs to go out and get it. Especially if you like brothas that can really sing.
