Cooleyhighharmony is the debut album by American R&B group Boyz II Men, originally released in the United States by Motown Records on April 30, 1991.
The album was mainly written by Boyz II Men members Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris and Shawn Stockman and extensively produced by Dallas Austin. The album's name is a tribute to a real high school in Chicago: Cooley Vocational High School.
Cooleyhighharmony debuted at #58 on the Billboard 200 and eventually peaked at #3. The album includes the Billboard Hot 100 Top 5 Singles, "Motownphilly" (#3) and "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday" (#2).
The album was re-released internationally in 1992 (1993 in the US) with remixes and the inclusion of two hit singles: the worldwide smash "End of the Road" from the Boomerang soundtrack and "In the Still of the Nite (I'll Remember)" which was initially recorded for the TV mini-series The Jacksons: An American Dream. The US release also included a Spanish version of "End of the Road".
In 2009, a two-disc digitally remastered special edition of the album was released, containing remixes as well as two previously unreleased songs.
Cooleyhighharmony has been certified 9× Platinum by the RIAA for shipments of over 9 million units in the US.
Gospel duo Dawkins & Dawkins incorporated one of their doo-wop melodies from "Sympin'" in "No Doubt About It" from their album Necessary Measures.
