98 Degrees (or 98°) was an American adult contemporary boy band consisting of four vocalists, brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons. The group was formed by Timmons in Los Angeles, California. Unlike most boy bands, they formed independently and were later picked up by a record label, as opposed to being assembled by a label or a producer. The group was originally signed to the Motown label in the mid-1990s. Their debut self-titled album was released in 1997 reaching #88 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and #145 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. Their debut single, “Invisible Man” which peaked at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart, achieved gold-record status after its release. After the first album, 98 Degrees left Motown for its parent company, Universal Records. “98 Degrees and Rising,” their second album, was released in 1998. It went 4x platinum and included such hits as “Because of You,” which peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and went platinum and “The Hardest Thing” which reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified gold. It also included a cover of Michael Jackson's “She's Out Of My Life.” A duet with labelmate Stevie Wonder, “True to Your Heart,” appeared on the “Mulan” film soundtrack. In 1999 they released a holiday album, “This Christmas,” which spawned the Top 40 single “This Gift.” The group scored a Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit with the single “Thank God I Found You,” a collaboration with Mariah Carey and Joe. The single went gold, and went to the Top 10 on the U.K. Singles chart and the group also received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals for the same song. In the summer of 2000, 98 Degrees released the first single of their new album “Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche).” The single went to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified gold. In September 2000, the band's album” Revelation” was released and peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 going 2x Platinum. The band's next singles were “My Everything” and “The Way You Want Me To,” both reaching the Top 40. In 2002, 98 Degrees released a compilation album called “The Collection,” with the new single “Why (Are We Still Friends).” The single reached the Top 40 and at that point the group had sold over 10 million records and released 12 singles. After its release the band went on an extended hiatus.

Pegged as one of the original boy bands of the late 1990’s and known for their authentic vocal harmonizing, Grammy-nominated 98 Degrees were never just an ordinary pop group.  Unlike most boy bands of the time, the group formed independently before later being signed to Motown Records, who released the group’s debut album 98° in 1997.

In 1998, the band released their breakthrough album 98° and Rising through Universal Records. The album went 4X platinum and yielded the hit singles “Because of You,” “I Do” and “The Hardest Thing.” The group’s success continued to flourish through the late 90’s and in 2000 Mariah Carey released “Thank God I Found You” featuring 98 Degrees and Joe. The single shot to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the group received a Grammy nomination for “Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.”

Later that year, the band released their fourth studio album Revelation which produced the #2 Billboard Hot 100 hit “Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche).”  Revelation peaked at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart and went on to become 2X platinum. By 2002, the band had sold a staggering 10 million albums and the release of The Collection, a compilation spanning the group’s impressive five-year career, helped solidify their place as one of music’s most influential pop bands.

In June of 2012, brothers Nick and Drew Lachey announced 98 Degrees’ official reunion on On Air with Ryan Seacrest.  98 Degrees is Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons
