They are back! The forgotten boy band known as 98 Degrees is back and they have a new single that literally is the most shockingly provocative song that any boy band has released (probably not, but it does catch you off guard).
Their new single is cleverly named “microphone” and it isn’t about a microphone but rather “singing into a microphone”. Here is the song:
Yeah, it’s one of those kind of songs. The song has an amazingly good beat that is not like the other 98 degrees songs they released mainly because it’s more pop than R&B. It doesn’t actually mention any kind of sexual action but it definitely hints at it. And when I say hint, I mean it literally waves it in your face and acts like you have no clue of the real meaning of the song. When I first listened to it, I literally felt so uncomfortable that I didn’t leave my room for weeks. Then after I re-listened to the song, it was less awkward and I just accepted that they were singing about sexual actions. I think it was that most of 98 Degrees have children and they (Nick and Jeff really) are singing about Oral Sex (sorry for bursting your bubble if you didn’t think it was about that).
What didn’t work about this song was the fact that it was only Nick and Jeff singing. Granted, they are the heart and soul of 98 Degrees but it would have been nice to hear Drew and Jeff (AKA the guy that no one knows) sing (I have a theory that they are the Kelly and Michelle of 98 Degrees while Jeff and Nick make up Beyoncé).
What I’m excited for is the music video to this song because I just want to see how they get try to cover up the sex that the lyrics have oozing out. It’s either going to basically be a porn or just a classy music video. Hopefully, they will give us what we want and that is a music video.
