Shai was formed at Howard University in Washington D.C. Three of the four members, Marc Gray, Carl Martin, and Darnell Van Rensalier, belonged to the same fraternity, Alpha Phi Alpha, and along with good friend, Garfield A. Bright, decided to take a chance at turning their hobby of singing into a career. Moving to New York City, New York, the foursome tried to secure a record deal, but they couldn't find any takers. With their money running out and their future looking bleak, the members of Shai took a chance on a radio contest that radio station WPGC was sponsoring. They chose to perform a song that Carl Martin wrote, "If I Ever Fall in Love," which they sang a cappella. The song won the contest and began finding airplay on WPGC. Other stations soon followed, and suddenly the record labels came calling. After signing with Gasoline Alley, Shai began putting together its debut album.

- LyricsThe very first time
That I saw your brown eyes
Your lips said hello and I said hi
I knew right then you were the one
But I was caught up
- Lyricsalk to me baby I'm listening
Lay down and tell me what's on your mind
What exactly did he do to make you cry this time
Well I will be your comforter I will make it right
- LyricsUnderstand girl that my heart is in your hands.
And I'm cautious. Of falling in love again.
So please don't hurt me, I'm scared.
Don't desert me, I'm afraid.
Of being a fool. Again.
- LyricsMisery,such a fool to let you walk away from me
Now it seems there' s just nobody there for me
Girl I'm in agony, for you
Gone without a trace
Never knew that love was such a lonely place
If you say, that you love me.
Won't you stay with me,
For all time?
Because your smile.
