The group was originally signed to the Motown label in the mid-1990s.

After the first album, 98 Degrees left Motown for its parent company, Universal Records. All four albums released by the group went platinum.

Jeff Timmons and 98 Degrees (780 words)
That's right, and his name is Jeff Timmons, founder and lead singer of the four-man band from Ohio that is currently booked all over the world and selling albums in volumes that earn awards called gold and platinum.
As a senior, Jeff's name came across the desk of BC head football coach Carlin Carpenter as a potential recruit, and after a few letters Timmons decided he was coming to Bluffton.
Jeff also lists his favorite song as "It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday" and if that includes his days at Bluffton College, then a return trip to northwest Ohio could be in the future for this booming superstar.
