Per WIKIPEDIA Shai is an American 1990s vocal R&B/soul quartet. Their most successful hit was "If I Ever Fall in Love", which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100.


The group met on the campus of Howard university and formed the group. "If I Ever Fall in Love" was released as the first single from the debut album of the same title, and peaked at #2 in the U.S. The next two releases from the platinum album, "Comforter" and "Baby I'm Yours," each peaked #10. The group's next album release was Right Back At Cha, a remix album that largely consisted of new versions of their previous hits, with a couple of new songs as well. A completely reworked version of their previous hit "Baby I'm Yours," simply titled "Yours," was released as a single, and peaked at #63.


Shai returned in 1994 with "The Place Where You Belong," from the Beverly Hills Cop III soundtrack. It was the group's final Top 40 single. In late 1995, their follow-up album Blackface was released (#42 Pop, #15 R&B). It featured their final R&B Top 20 single "Come with Me" (#43 Pop). The group's last chart appearance was the follow-up single, 1996's #89 single "I Don't Wanna Be Alone" Remix, which featured Jay-Z and was inspired by the Belinda Carlisle's 1987 "Heaven Is a Place on Earth"..
