Five Star Backing Tracks –  Rain Or Shine … System Addict

Five Star (also styled as 5 Star) were a British pop/R&B group, formed in 1983. Comprising siblings Stedman, Lorraine, Denise, Doris and Delroy Pearson, they were known for their flamboyant image, matching costumes and heavily choreographed dance routines. Between 1985 and 1988, Five Star had four top 20 albums and 15 Top 40 singles in the UK, including the top 10 hits “System Addict” (1986), “Can’t Wait Another Minute” (1986), “Find the Time” (1986), “Rain or Shine” (1986), “Stay Out of My Life” (1987) and “The Slightest Touch” (1987). They won the 1987 Brit Award for Best British Group.

Although the group had success in the British charts, they found their greatest success in the United States. The band’s single, “System Addict”, reached number six on the Billboard Hot 100 in the 1980s, and the album Fivestar: The Album is still a classic in the UK. In addition, several of the band’s singles were re-released and sampled by many popular hip hop and R&B artists, including 50 Cent, Mobb Deep, and Aaliyah.

The group was also well known for their energetic performances and their use of unique dance moves. They brought a “streetwise” and “urban” style to the stage that was not often seen with other groups of the era. This unique style gave them a leg up in the music industry and helped them gain a larger following.
