98° at Christmas 2018
98° is hot. In five short years — from 1997 to 2002 — they'd sold a staggering 10 million records, scored a chart-topping single, Thank God I Found You, with Mariah Carey and Joe, and collaborated with their collective idol, Stevie Wonder, on True to Your Heart, for the 1998 animated Disney film, Mulan. Their four-million-selling album, 98° and Rising (1998, Motown), spawned the top-5 favorites Because of You, I Do, and The Hardest Thing, while 2000’s Revelation (Universal Records), which sold two million copies, peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200 and yielded a trio of hits, Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche), My Everything, and The Way You Want Me To. 2001, the all-Ohio-raised quartet decided to take a break. Their sold out tours in 2013 and 2016 proved a demand for 98° so when the timing was right with the band’s schedules, they recorded and released their first full-length Christmas album in 18 years, Let It Snow.
