Dru Hill returns to Baltimore for the holidays in new music video

Baltimore R&B group Dru Hill comes home for the holidays in its latest music video.

The group returned to the city to shoot a music video for “Favorite Time Of Year,” a single off of their nine-song holiday album “Christmas in Baltimore.” The video was released this week.

It features the quartet, which includes Mark “SisQo” Andrews, Tamir “Nokio” Ruffin, Larry “Jazz” Anthony and Antwuan “Tao” Simpson, singing in front of rowhomes — including the festive display of Miracle on 34th Street in Hampden. The shots are interspersed with images of the Inner Harbor, nighttime city scapes, and shots of the group’s performance at this year’s Washington Monument lighting. You can watch the video above.

“It was important for us to go back home to shoot this video,” the group said in a statement. “We wanted to show the world a different side of Baltimore — the side that we know and love … the parts that inspired us and gave us that magic that we’ve been blessed to share for over twenty years.”

“Christmas in Baltimore,” the nine-song EP, was released in November. It’s Dru Hill’s first project since 2010’s “InDRUpendence Day.”
