Thank you for posting.FOR YOUR POSTING CONSIDERATION, below, please the link to the for the new single, “HI-FIVE CHRISTMAS” from the legendary 90’s Pop/R&B Group HI-FIVE. The up-tempo charitable track was produced by Demetrius T”Bari Lee and Stephen S. Gladney and written by Hi-Five member, Billy Covington.“Christmas morning is one of the most exciting days of the year for children. There is nothing more fun and exciting than tearing off the wrapping paper and opening up packages of new toys. Unfortunately, for many children, that experience is only one they can dream of, as their families are unable to afford any additional expenses at this time of year. However, with your help, we can make that dream a reality for thousands of kids,” says HI-FIVE.
What had started out as a holiday song “Hi-Five Christmas” from the chart-topping R&B group Hi-Five, has turned into an amazing opportunity to bring holiday cheer into the lives of countless children through the Toys for Tots program. With your generous support we can brighten the holiday season for needy boys and girls. Please share this with family and friends so they can join in the spirit of giving this holiday season.“HI-FIVE CHRISTMAS” is available on iTunes, Amazon.com, Google Play and all other digital retailers now. http://www.amazon.com/Hi-Five-

HI-FIVE released their first and self-titled album in 1990. The album went platinum and was produced by legendary producer Teddy Riley; it included such singles as “I Just Can’t Handle It” (R&B #10), “I Can’t Wait Another Minute” (Pop #8, R&B #1), and their biggest hit to date, “I Like the Way (The Kissing Game)“, which went to number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and the U.S. Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The group was aggressively marketed by Jive and was part of the “new jack swing” sound that dominated much of the early to mid-1990s urban contemporary radio format.HI-FIVE enjoyed some mainstream success and were essentially similar in design to R&B counterparts such as H-Town, Shai, Public Announcement, and perhaps most notably, Boyz II Men. The group’s single, “Too Young” was featured on John Singleton’s Boyz n the Hood, the soundtrack from the movie.
HI-FIVE’s second LP, Keep It Goin’ On, came out in 1992. Though not as successful as their debut effort, several tracks from this album, including “She’s Playing Hard To Get” (Pop #5, R&B #2) and the R. Kelly-penned “Quality Time” (Pop #38, R&B #3) got major airplay in East Coast (US) urban markets. In 1993, HI-FIVE emerged with a third album, Faithful, which featured the songs “Unconditional Love” (Pop #92, R&B #21) and “Never Should’ve Let You Go” (Pop #30, R&B #10). “Unconditional Love” was also featured in the multi-platinum Menace II Society soundtrack, and received extensive airplay on urban contemporary stations throughout the summer of 1993 as the movie increased in popularity. “Never Should’ve Let You Go” was featured in the ‘Sister Act 2’ soundtrack. In 2013, the group’s single “Favorite Girl” topped the Top 50 Urban AC charts at #37.
