Once upon a time, not so long ago but in another era completely, Nick Lachey and his 98 Degrees bandmates were just a group of earnest, twenty-something hunks who wanted to "cherish you." Now that they're all grown up, however, they have a few other, more adult ideas in mind. One month after announcing their upcoming album 2.0, the "boy" banders have released a new, very sexually suggestive single, "Microphone."
The song, a bass-heavy dance track, finds the four guys -- Lachey, 39, his younger brother Drew, 36,Jeff Timmons, 39, and Justin Jeffre -- using not-so-subtle innuendo to refer to their assets and various sex acts. One verse asks the object of the singer's affection to "put this [microphone] in your hands / and hold it up to your lips." "We can be a two-piece band," Lachey croons, "and make some hits while you sing in this microphone."
