Whatever Happened To Sisqó, The 'Thong Song' Guy?

Updated 20 Sep 2018 3.1k views13 items

For a brief period back in 2000, Sisqó took over the charts - and the world - with his No. 1 hit, "Thong Song." You may wonder what Sisqó has been up to since then. "Thong Song" ruled the radio, and its accompanying music video played endlessly on MTV. In addition to its commercial success, the tune garnered four Grammy nominations. In the years since, the thong-loving singer has been unable to match the success of his first single. In fact, it sometimes seems as if he fell off the earth entirely. If anything, Sisqó's "Thong Song" remakes prove his most famous number remains an enduring treat.

Sisqó was born Mark Andrews on November 9, 1978, in Baltimore, MD. As a teenager, he and three friends formed the successful R&B group Dru Hill. They released two albums before Sisqó went solo. As of 2018, Sisqó is still performing with Dru Hill, although the other original members have since parted ways. His first solo album, Unleash the Dragon, released in 1999, gave us "Thong Song." His second album, Return of Dragon, came out in 2001, followed by years of apparent quiet.

But if you take a closer look, you'll realize Sisqó never really went away - even if the music did.
