Such as “Tell Me” on their first debut album Dru Hill released in 1996. “Tell Me” became the group’s first hit single transcending to number five on Billboard’s Hot R and B Singles Chart. Dru Hill’s debut album, Dru Hill, peaked at number five on Billboard’s Top R and B Albums Chart and at number twenty-three on the Billboard’s 200, selling more than 1.5 million copies. None of their success could have been possible without the group members diverse talents and interest.
