Hi-Five Reuniting, Group Member Speaks On Projects

Even if you weren’t old enough to play the “Kissing Game,” chances are you’ve heard Hi-Five’s single of the same name, at some point, on any number of urban, R&B stations around the world.

Hi-Five debuted with their self-titled hit album in 1990, which spawned singles like “I Can’t Wait Another Minute” and their biggest single, “I Like the Way (The Kissing Game).”

In 1992, just before the group’s second album, Treston Irby joined the group and helped power Hi-Five to amass a number of Top 10 singles throughout the decade.

The group took a long hiatus when lead singer Tony Thompson died from inhaling freon in 2007. Now, most of the original group members are reuniting and preparing to release a new album of material.

“We are coming together again for our fans,” group member Treston Irby told AllHipHop.com. “All true R&B fans will love the new material.”

Until the group album is ready, Treston Irby is dropping his first solo album titled 10473, an area code for the Bronx. The first single from the album is titled “Everything.” Check out the video below:
