Amazing album produced by Leon F. Sylvers III. The quality of this album is just outta space !

The album peaked at #27 on the R&B albums chart. It also reached #172 on the Billboard 200. The album yielded two Billboard R&B chart singles, “High Hopes” and “Have It Your Way“, each peaking at #25 and #57 respectively. “High Hopes” also reached #49 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. The third single, “Groovin’ (That’s What We’re Doin’)”, peaked at #47 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart and #72 on the UK Singles Chart.

“High Hopes” is notable for being the first collaboration between the group and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who would go on to write and produce several hits for the group. The album was digitally remastered and reissued on CD with bonus tracks in 2007 by Finesse Records.
