The pop group 98 Degrees officially came back with good news to their fans, including an update regarding their potential tour with Backstreet Boys and NSYNC.
On July 9, 98 Degrees returned to the spotlight with "Where Do You Wanna Go." The first original song after eight years is part of their "98 Days of Summer" campaign.
The pop band launched the project to feature throwback videos and photos of them. On August 8, they will drop the biggest surprise yet by releasing an EP titled, "Summer of 98." It will reportedly feature present new songs and remixes of their hit tracks.
But aside from their new music, 98 Degrees also discussed the potential collaboration with two of the biggest bands in the 1990s: Backstreet Boys and NSYNC.
98 Degrees x Back-SYNC? It's Possible!
In an exclusive interview with HollywoodLife, the band talked about staying true to their roots through their song. With their comeback, questions about them collaborating with other bands emerged.
This year, NSYNC members Joey Fatone and Lance Bass teamed up with Backstreet Boys members AJ McLean and Nick Carter for a special Pride Month event. Now that 98 Degrees is also back, the band disclosed about the potential music alliance.
"There is a real appetite for it. What was once not even an option [is] now something that people are really thinking it would be a really cool thing," Nick Lachey said.
He added that his group would definitely grab the chance to be part of the tour where NSYNC and Backstreet Boys would also join. Even before it happens, Lachey already saw the collaboration as a lifetime moment that would make fans go crazy.
The three bands indeed rose to fame in the 1990s until the early 2000s. Even after all these years, their fanbases remain stronger than ever.
Where 98 Degrees' Hardwork Rooted From
In the same interview, the members were asked about their legacy and what pushed them to reach the place they are currently in.
Jeff Timmons, the founding member of the pop band, said that the band treated people with respect. They made their pillars stronger by working hard to build them.
"We all prided ourselves with respect and working hard and putting out a really great product. I think we stayed true to that, and we are continuing to do that," he said. "And as long as our fans are out there embracing us, then we will keep going with it."
