28 years ago today, Hi-Five dropped their debut album, "Hi-Five". The album peaked at #38 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart & is RIAA Certified Platinum. The singles released include "I Just Can't Handle It" (which hit #10 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Chart), "I Can't Wait Another Minute" (which hit #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 & #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Chart), "Just Another Girlfriend" ( #41 R&B/Hip-Hop) & “I Like The Way (The Kissing Game)" which became the biggest off the album, hitting #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Chart. Produced by Teddy Riley, Bernard Bell, Vincent Bell, Eric Foster White, Alvin Moody, Carl E. Bourelly, Jean-Paul Bourelly, Kevin Johnson, William Walton & Frankie Smith, “Hi-Five” is an New Jack Swing album with elements of Pop/Hip-Hop & R&B, & marked the album debut of Hi-Five, consisting of members Anthony “Tony” Thompson, Russell Neal, Marcus Sanders, Roderick “Pooh” Clark, & Toriano Easley (All from Waco, TX, with Easley from Oklahoma City, OK). Hi-Five became hr first R&B Group to be signed to Jive Records & immediately caught the attention of notable New Jack Swing producer & artist Teddy Riley, & began work on their debut album. The major success of the album, the singles, not to mention quintet’s handsome & charismatic personalities, made them instant stars into the NJS/Pop industry; unfortunately Easley would experience major legal trouble & would be immediately replaced with Treston Irby, (from The Bronx, NYC, NY). Nevertheless, “Hi-Five” became a huge hit album for the group, with “I Like The Way (The Kissing Game)", became one of the biggest singles of 1991, & solidified Hi-Five as a huge influence to teen-pop/hip-hop/R&B/new jack swing. The album is also most notable for a then-unknown feature from rapper Prodigy of Mobb Deep, on the track "Too Young, which would later be used for the soundtrack for "Boyz N The Hood". No doubt, “Hi-Five” is a DOPE, CLASSIC album, that catapulted the fellas of Hi-Five to mainstream success, ushered in one of the earliest fusions of Pop & R&B, & is STILL an album that is on rotation to this day. EPIC✔️. HAPPY 28th ANNIVERSARY "Hi-Five" ✨🔥🔌🎉😊🎊
Di momenti insieme, belli e brutti come in ogni coppia di zucconi che si rispetti.
Di serate organizzate nel minimo dettaglio e di intere giornate decise al momento.
Di parole dolci dette piano piano e qualche insulto urlato in un momento di rabbia.
Di paure e di coraggio, perché costruire pezzi di vita con una persona è tutto tranne che facile.
Di pregi e di difetti, scoperti giorno dopo giorno.
Di sorrisi e di risate.
Di limiti superati.
Di sostegno reciproco, ma sopratutto di complicità.
Auguri a noi 🖤
