About 98 Degrees

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 their 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 their remix EP on August 20th.

Starting with its 1997 self-titled debut album 98 Degrees, the band rose to fame during the boy-band-crazed era of the late ‘90s. Their platinum debut featured the Top 10 hit single “Invisible Man.” In 1998, their second release “98 Degrees and Rising” went 5x 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).” Their third album “This Christmas,” released in 1998, went 5x platinum and spawned the Top 40 hit single “This Gift.” This was followed by “Revelation” in 2000 which went 2x 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. 98 Degrees 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. “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. The American/R&B Vocal group has sold more than 15 million records worldwide and achieved eight Top 40 singles in the U.S.

Jonas Brothers “Only Human” Music Video

Maintaining momentum for the biggest comeback of the decade, Jonas Brothers unveil the music video for their latest single “Only Human” today.

Watch it HERE.

Last night, the group announced a YouTube watch page would launch at 10am ET today, featuring a countdown clock and chat with the band, followed by the exclusive worldwide premiere of the official video for “Only Human” at 1PM ET.

The video also saw broadcast premiers with MTV Live, mtvU and the iconic Times Square Viacom billboards. Directed by Anthony Mandler, who also directed the band’s videos for “Sucker” and “Cool,” the video evokes an eighties throwback vibe as Jonas Brothers perform to a packed audience, crooning into vintage microphones and kicking old school dance moves.

The video release comes as “Only Human” heats up at radio, quickly ascending both the Hot AC and Top 40 chart- where it is already Top 15. This week, the band took home two 2019 Teen Choice Awards for “Artist Of The Decade” and “Choice Summer Group.” The band also received four nominations at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards taking place on August 26, 2019 in Newark, NJ. The nods include “Video of the Year,” “Song of the Year,” and “Best Pop” for “Sucker” as well as “Artist of the Year.” Vote HERE.

Speaking to the widespread success, “Sucker” also achieved a platinum certification from the RIAA. Recently, Jonas Brothers ignited their sold-out Happiness Begins Tour in Miami with an explosive performance. Joined by special guests Bebe Rexha and Jordan McGraw, the jaunt canvases North America through the end of the year. Check out the full itinerary below.

Happiness Begins became the third #1 album of the Jonas Brother’s career and first release since 2009. This #1 bow represented a landmark moment for the group and pop at large as they retain the place at the top of the charts they claimed a decade ago. Jonas Brothers achieved the biggest sales week of 2019 for an album. Not to mention, Happiness Begins generated a greater total consumption of more than the rest of the Billboard 200’s Top 10 combined!

A global success, the album also landed at #1 in Canada, with additional career high debuts in countries including UK, Australia, Germany and the Netherlands and more. These achievements solidified Jonas Brothers’ return as the biggest pop moment of 2019.
