SINGLE PREMIERE: 98 Degrees – “Microphone” (+ Lyrics)

Give them just one spot (un lugar.)

Sing while you’re winning.

Here’s the latest episode in the soap opera of the music industry that we call As The Boy Band World Turns. The next comeback comes from Ohio band 98 Degrees, with their first single release since “Why (Are We Still Friends?)” in the spring of 2002. The quartet is getting a little (and a mean really) dirty on their latest single, “Microphone”, which premiered earlier today on Z100 in New York City and is now online. It’s the first single release from their first studio album since 2000, 2.0, out May 7 via eOne Records. Be prepared to take a shower afterwards. Listen here.

“Microphone” goes to iTunes on April 2 and goes for CHR radio adds on April 9.

(Will update with more information! If there are corrections to the lyrics, let me know.)

“MICROPHONE”

[Verse 1]
When I’m done with you
You’ll be able to carry a tune
I’mma take you to school
And teach you how to use this microphone

[Bridge]
Oh oh oh
Like oh oh oh
I’ll make you scream at the top of your lungs
Like oh oh oh whoa

[Chorus]
Hey lady, grab the microphone
And say “do-re-mi-fa-so-oh-oh-oh”
Yeah baby, you’re warmed up and ready to blow
Like do-re-mi-fa-so-oh-oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh oh
Oh oh oh-oh-oh
Hey lady, grab the microphone
And say “do-re-mi-fa-so-oh-oh-oh”

[Verse 2]
Put this in your hands (Put this in your hands!)
And hold it up to your lips
We can be a two-piece band
And make some hits while you sing in this microphone

[Bridge]
Oh oh oh
Like oh oh oh
I’ll make you scream at the top of your lungs
Like oh oh oh whoa

[Chorus]
Hey lady, grab the microphone
And say “do-re-mi-fa-so-oh-oh-oh”
Yeah baby, you’re warmed up and ready to blow
Like do-re-mi-fa-so-oh-oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh oh
Oh oh oh-oh-oh
Hey lady, grab the microphone
And say “do-re-mi-fa-so-oh-oh-oh”

[Middle 8]
How would it taste?
Can you put your money where your mouth is?
You can make no mistakes
You got a promise to try and do the best you can
The best you can
You better do your best
The best you can
So come and sing in this microphone oh oh oh

[1/2 Chorus to end]
Hey lady, grab the microphone (Like oh oh oh)
And say “do-re-mi-fa-so-oh-oh-oh” (I’ll make you scream at the top of your lungs)
Yeah baby, you’re warmed up and ready to blow (Like oh oh oh)
Like do-re-mi-fa-so-oh-oh-oh (In this microphone oh oh oh)
Hey lady, grab the microphone (Like oh oh oh)
And say “do-re-mi-fa-so-oh-oh-oh” (I’ll make you scream at the top of your lungs)
Yeah baby, you’re warmed up and ready to blow (Like oh oh oh)
Like do-re-mi-fa-so-oh-oh-oh (Oh oh)

Are you feeling the song or do you think this microphone should cut out early? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter: @AdamFSoybel.

  1. It’s like a SNL parody of boyband songs. Their vocals are good, but if lyrically this is the best they can come up with, it’s better that they not get back together.

  2. I don’t mind the song, I just don’t take them very serious.

    OK, so before I listened to the track, I read the lyrics. I was expecting it to sound like “Knockin’ Da Boots” or some other “greezy” rnb jam from back n da day. You can imagine my surprise at finding they put these lyrics to a pop-dance music track. The worst part is that, for me, it was an instant earworm. Thanks a lot, ABomb! I’ll get you, and your little dog, too!
