Unleash the Dragon [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Martin Johnson
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."

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.
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.

    THE DRAGON HAS SURELY BEEN UNLEASHED!..

    i thought that SisQos solo album 'UNLEASH THE DRAGON' was a total success. On the album it had a very diffrent vibe with the songs and various genres. This album was SisQos big break and he did make higher than all the rest, he left and brushed all the haters off his shoulders. UNLEASH THE DRAGON is the type of album that would put you in the mood for anything. Whether your feeling depressed about love or happy about love (etc.), it has a song on that album especially dedicated to you. That's why i rate i this album on top of the charts.

    Oh, please, Mr. Gallucci........

    To hell with what the critics say! My family has been listening to the hit songs from this album frequently. I grew weary of the original Thong Song and now enjoy the new one--obviously.

    Sisqo Says It All

    Sisqo is the man. His songs are the greatest. I bought his CD the day before it came out because it would probably be sold out. Thanx Sisqo.

    you dont get any better than this!!!

    I think that the whole cd rules. I have listened to dru hill for four years. I know that there is way more to Sisqo than the thog song. I think that the his music is true and I can listen to it forever. I think that I will be like him one day. I have this feeling. I listen to the cd, and I sing along with the great songs, and I will be see myself performing all of the great songs.I dont know, I just think that all of their cds are awesome, espically unleash the dragon!!!

    Unleash the Dragon

    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.
