Remember 98 Degrees? They were a mildly successful boy band in the 90s that were a little bit over shadowed by some of the heavy-hitters like Backstreet Boys and *Nsync, but still had many fans.
A lot of their success probably had to do with Nick Lachey's very public marriage to Jessica Simpson. It helped bring attention to their music and keep people interested in them even though they were competing against so many other boy bands.
There are obviously a lot of forgotten boy bands, but 98 Degrees was probably one of the best. They had a bunch of really great slow jams that helped them stand out.
Their songs were catchy and they ended up getting a song featured in the Disney movie Mulan. "True to Your Heart" was a duet with Stevie Wonder and it helped propel them into the top tier of boy bands.
Their songs "Because of You" and "The Hardest Thing" ended up making it into the top five of the Billboard Hot 100, and eventually they made a Christmas album that sold very well.
Their first number one hit was a collaboration with Mariah Carrey and Joe called "Thank God I Found You". Their next song, "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)" managed to make it to number two, but shortly after the release of that album they called it quits and went on haitus.
