Grammy-nominated platinum R&B icon, Johnny Gill from the legendary New Edition group, has received his fourth top five hit for “5000 miles,” with R&B singer-songwriter, Jaheim.
Released on J Skillz Entertainment/Caroline Record, the single has continuously climbed the charts, charting at #5 on the Billboard Adult R&B chart for three consecutive weeks.
From his Game Changer album released in 2014, the record brings back the real feel of a sacred love expressed through R&B music. Months later, Gill scored a No.1 R&B Radio Hit with New Edition, “This One’s For Me and You,” the third single also from his Game Changer album.
His success for 2017 has been promising, from the incredible reception of the three-part miniseries “The New Edition Story,” bringing in over 29 million views, New Edition receiving their very own Hollywood Star on the Walk of Fame and joining notable R&B icon, Charlie Wilson on the “In It To Win It,” international arena tour.
The “5000 Miles,” single can be heard in several cities including New York, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Nashville, San Francisco and music outlets such as SiriusXM and Music Choice.
We had the pleasure of interviewing Gill in March of last year, where he talked about his Game Changer album, musical influences, what’s on his playlist and his stance on the stake of R&B.
