Pop Topper Of The Week: 98 Degrees - 'Microphone'

May 11th, 2013 10:00am EDT
98 Degrees
What do Justin Timberlake, Destiny’s Child, and Mariah Carey have in common? They all are artists who took a longer-than-expected hiatus from the music industry to pursue other careers (or raise children). From these long breaks, these musicians have been able to pop back into the music scene and are doing surprisingly well.

So it seems like legendary pop acts are in, right? But of course! As pop fanatics, we never miss an old icon coming back into the scene (I mean, look at Madonna), and that is why we’ve named “Microphone” by 98° as the Pop Topper of the Week!

In the time that has pas...
