98 Degrees (stylized as 98°) is a Grammy-nominated American pop and contemporary R&B band. The group is made up of four vocalists: Justin Jeffre, Jeff Timmons and brothers Nick and Drew Lachey. It was formed by Timmons in Los Angeles, California. All members of the group come from Ohio.

Instead of being assembled by a record label or a producer like most boy bands, 98 Degrees formed independently. They joined a record label later.

The group has sold over 10 million records across the world. They have had eight top 40 singles in the United States.[1]

Songs from 98 Degrees include "This Gift", "True to Your Heart" and "Invisible Man". In 1999 the group released the album This Christmas. It sold over one million copies.

In 2002, the group took a break from recording and touring. In 2012, they got back together. In May 2013, they released a new album, 2.0.
