One of the best-selling boy bands of the ’90s, the group features Jeff Timmons, brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, and Justin Jeffre. Inspired to get back together during the pandemic, the band is scheduled to make a return to the stage in August as they begin their “98 Days of Summer” campaign. In anticipation of their return, the guys recently released their new single and video “Where Do You Wanna Go.” The vibrant, catchy pop song/video is the group’s first in eight years, and was produced and co-written by DJ LUX and released under 98 INC / Johnny Wright Entertainment.
The “98 Days of Summer” campaign, which launched in June, features 98 days of throwback photos, video clips, and unreleased music on the group’s social media channels, culminating in the release of the remix EP on Aug. 20.
Starting with its 1997 self-titled debut album “98°,” the band rose to fame during the boy-band-crazed era of the late ’90s. Its Platinum debut featured the Top 10 hit single “Invisible Man.” In 1998, a second release, “98° and Rising,” went five-times-Platinum and featured the classic chart-topping Top 10 singles “Because of You” and “The Hardest Thing,” and the classic wedding favorite “I Do (Cherish You).” A third album, “This Christmas,” released in 1998, went five-times-Platinum and spawned the Top 40 hit single “This Gift.” This was followed by “Revelation” in 2000, which went two-times-Platinum. It featured the hit single “Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche),” which became the most added Top 40 single in history, allowing the song to debut strongly at No. 2 in the Billboard 100 charts – becoming the highest-charting single in its debut week by a boy band during that time.
“Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)” became the most added Top 40 single in history with 170 adds on radio in its initial week, allowing the song to debut strongly at No. 2 in the Billboard 100 charts, becoming the highest-charting single in its debut week by a boy band during that time.
98° was also featured on Mariah Carey’s chart-topper “Thank God I Found You” that same year. The group released a greatest hits album in 2002. The American/R&B vocal group has sold more than 15 million records worldwide and achieved eight Top 40 singles in the U.S.
