98 Degrees To Cash In On Nostalgia By Reuniting?
This caused the site RumorFix to report the following:
"Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons and Justin Jeffre are set to go on a fifteen city tour this summer between July and August, a source close to the band tells RumorFix. Rumors of a reunion tour began Wednesday night when the band’s website –revealing a new design and logo — was updated for the first time in a decade — and our source says it’s because of the tour."First things first: 98 Degrees landed a handful of utterly forgettable Top 10 hits between 1998 and 2000, the biggest of which were "Because Of You"(#3 on the Hot 100), "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)" (#2) and the Mariah Carey team-up "Thank God I Found You" (#1). I vaguely remember the first one (only because I have the CD single buried somewhere in the closet), and have zero idea how "Give Me Just One Night" goes.
But their best song was "The Hardest Thing" (#5), which was a TRL staple in spring 1999, right around the time I moved to Los Angeles. Good memories.
Longtime Chart Rigger readers may recall that I stanned hard for Nick Lachey's 2006 solo hit "What's Left Of Me." But as for the band reuniting for a tour, better cash would be spent/made if they just joined Jeff Timmons as a member of Chippendales.
