Back in February we learned that 90’s boyband 98 Degrees is making a comeback this year with a new album and a new tour with fellow boybands New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men. Last month, we got our first listen of the band’s new single … an absolutely horrible song titled Microphone. Today we get our first look at the cover art for 98 Degrees’s new album 2.0 and as you can see below, the guys appear to have an intense love of lens flare.
Back in the day, 98 Degrees seemed happy to flaunt/exploit their shirtless bodies to promote the release of their music … these days, notsomuch. I have to say, I have not been impressed with anything that the guys have given us from this new era of music. The promo photos look cheap and, worst of all, their first single is really unlistenable. I’m having a hard time taking their return very seriously. I guess we’ll have to wait and hear what the rest of the 2.0 album sounds like but thus far … 98 Degrees gets a resounding Meh. from me.
