JODECI + BOYZ II MEN = DRU HILL?

Is Leading Frontman Sisqo right on in this YOUTUBE Video? What would make us believe/think that Combining the 2 would Lead to Another? What Attributes do you ALL see in Combining the 2 Groups(in the Former) that would Lead the Other Group(in the Latter)?

Sisqo Talks Dru Hill, Jod... - YouTube

I think it's more like Jodeci + Dennis Rodman razz Boys II Men is kinda like a barbershop quartet.

You can take a black guy to Nashville from right out of the cotton fields with bib overalls, and they will call him R&B. You can take a white guy in a pin-stripe suit who’s never seen a cotton field, and they will call him country. ~ O. B. McClinton

Y'all 2 need to help me on this one because JODECI are like 'R&B Bad Boys' Already without including Dennis Rodman? Like what 'Attributes' do y'all 2 see adding Dennis Rodman in with JODECI? I know that it can't be the Vocal Singing. I know that Sisqo has hair Dyed just like DR. BUT what I'm talking about 'what Other R&B Male Group' would compliment for/with JODECI in order to get Dru Hill?

I always thought TLC was the female BBD.

I think abc sounds more similar to early tlc, and they’re also from Georgia

Huh? The group that had songs like Broken Arrow, Be Near Me, & When Smokey Sings? I think they're British.

i actually like Sisqo's equation for sonic reasons vocally, but dru hill were more jodeci than b2m tho. they'd need a couple soulful power ballads that crossed over to get pop audiences and be known to wypipo like b2m. most wypipo don't even know of them, unlike b2m.

More like a poor man's Jodeci. I don't see the Boyz II Men part and they're not quite as good as Jodeci was. They had some good songs though.

I remember them and Kris Kross was dissing each other in songs. Like the 1st line in Jump. There were also other teen rap groups like Illegal, 5th Ward Juvenilez, & Da Youngstas back then.

That group was called Quo and was on MJJ Records along with Brownstone & Tatiana Ali. The other member of Quo (DeWayne Turrentine) is now married to actress Reagan Gomez.

It was the very first line "Don't try to compare us to another bad little fad". I have this Michael Bivins compilation album of his acts (East Coast Family Volume 1) and Another Bad Creation had a reply song on it called All These Wanna Be's. The same album has the first appearance of Yvette Nicole Brown who later became an actress. Bobby Brown later came out with a similar album titled B. Brown Posse. Another youth rap song was Raven-Symone's That's What Little Girls Are Made Of.

Also there's also 'SOME THINGS(I'm guessing & assuming)' that 'SEPARATE DRU HILL from the Rest Of The Male R&B Pack' from the Mid-1990s - Mid-2000s, & I wondered what are 'THOSE THINGS'? Any Idea Folks?

Is it or Isn't it a COINCIDENCE that JODECI's Breakup & Hiatus(Almost 19 Years Until 2015) GAVE BIRTH to DRU-HILL

's Arrival in 1996? The Timing Of It All?

But K-Ci & JoJo was still around & All My Life was a bigger hit than any Jodeci song.
