The group enjoyed mainstream success and received comparisons to many of their R&B counterparts, namely New Edition. 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" and the R. Kelly-penned "Quality Time" got major airplay. Shortly after this album was released, Roderick "Pooh" Clark was involved in a near-fatal automobile accident.
In 1993, Hi-Five emerged with a third album, Faithful, which featured the songs "Unconditional Love" and "Never Should Have Let You Go". After Hi-Five disbanded around 1994, Thompson released a solo album, Sexsational. He scored a minor hit with "I Wanna Love Like That". In 2005, Thompson re-incarnated Hi-Five with four new members, one of whom is his younger brother, Jordan. Their new album The Return was released in 2006 on Thompson's independent label, N'Depth. Unfortunately, on June 1st, 2007, the lead singer Tony Thompson passed away in his hometown of Waco, TX. During this time, Tony Thompson was working on a reunion.
Tony's vision is now coming to fruition with the leadership of long-time friend and band mate, "Trus" (Treston Irby) who has retooled Hi-Five to preserve the signature 90's sound and create new music for listeners born in the 90's. They are now in the studio and preparing to drop a new album on Irby's Bronx Most Wanted label.
