It has been quite a big week for ’90s boyband 98 Degrees. The group dropped an entire remix album on Friday full of new takes on old classics. They also performed a live concert for the first time in over a year at the New York State Fair.

98 Degrees Releases New Remix Album

Jeff Timmons, Justin Jeffre, and brothers Drew and Nick Lachey, are back with their first non-holiday music release in eight years. The group always wanted to put out more music and headed to Las Vegas to record Summer of 98° The Remixes with proper safety precautions in place. Nick is fresh off his win as The Piglet on Season 5 of The Masked Singer.

In July, 98 Degrees released “Where Do You Wanna Go” along with a summery music video. It is part of their 98 Days of Summer campaign as they have been releasing throwback footage, behind-the-scenes photos, and a ton of content for fans leading up to the release of Summer of 98° The Remixes. They worked with DJ Lux to create upbeat versions of past songs like “The Hardest Thing” and “Invisible Man.”

“This album is so much fun! Love hearing my favorites in whole new ways, & I’m not usually one for remixes!” one fan wrote on Twitter.

The Group Performed Live For the First Time in Over a Year

The group hit the stage at the New York State Fair with vibrant energy. After posting a couple of photos from the event, concertgoers raved in the comments section about the experience. A couple of fans even called it the best concert they have ever been to.

There is good news for 98 Degrees fans who could not make it out to the show last week. The group will be taking the stage at Mandalay Bay Beach on September 16. One lucky fan will win a trip to Las Vegas with a friend to see the show. The prize is complete with airfare, a hotel, a shopping spree, and bottle service at the pool party before hanging out with 98 Degrees. All you have to do is listen to iHeartRadio for the keyword to enter.

Regular tickets are still available for the show at Mandalay Bay Beach if you don’t want to test your luck. It’s the perfect chance to see 98 Degrees perform for a little under $40. Just as 98 Degrees bursting back onto the scene is exciting for fans, it’s also exciting for the group members.

“I think we still probably appreciate more than ever, the music we make together,” Nick said. “We all love each other and still sing together and have developed a brotherhood, a true camaraderie. And we’ve all gone on to other things on our own, but there’s really nothing like getting together on stage and doing what we do, what we started out doing.”
