Another 90’s R&B Group Reunites [VIDEO]

Fans of music from late 80’s / early 90’s will be excited to find out that the multi-platinum R&B group Hi-Five are back! Its been almost twenty years since the original lineup released a new studio album. Their last studio album (Faithful) was released on Jive Records back in early 1993 and only charted one hit single on the Billboard Hot 100 (Never Should’ve Let You Go) peaking at #30 / #10 on the R&B charts. 

Hi-Five was able to crossover from the R&B charts to the pop charts fairly easy.  They reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 with the smash “I Like The Way (The Kissing Game)” and quickly charted additional Top 10 hits like “I Can’t Wait Another Minute” and the international smash “She’s Playing Hard To Get.”   It didn’t hurt that the quintet was paired up with super producer / songwriter Teddy Riley (Guy / Blackstreet) and blessed to have a fan base that spanned the globe. 

The group wasn’t without its hardships or tragedies.  A near fatal car accident shortly after the release of the groups second album, left member Roderick “Pooh” Clark a paraplegic and an accidental overdose claimed the life of lead singer Tony Thompson back in the summer of 2007.  Hi-Five’s current roster includes original member Marcus Sanders and Treston Irby (who replaced Toriano Easley very early on in the group’s career) along with Shannon Gill (joined the group for the Faithful album), Faruq Evans and Dre Ramseur.  They recently played a sold out show at Pure Nightclub in New York City where they debuted the single “Favorite Girl” and let fans know they are back and ready to do it all over again!
