98 Degrees' new single Microphone (LISTEN)

98 Degrees announced earlier this year that they were going to be going on a joint boy band tour with Boys II Men and New Kids on the Block at the end of May. After the announcement it was only a matter of time before Jessica Simpson's ex and his old pals released some new music.

Their new single is called Microphone. After a couple of listens I remembered why I was never on team 98 Degrees. The sound is OK, but there was never anything superior or outstanding about their stuff that made it stand out from the other boyband pop music. They didn't have a voice like NSYNC (Timberlake), the looks like the Backstreet Boys or the edge of New Kids on the Block (Wahlberg).

Now that there are new boy bands like One Direction and The Wanted, the has-beens really have to step up there game...especially those who didn't have a huge fan base to begin with.

As far as the song is concerned...they lost me at 'do-re-mi-fa-soooooo'.
