98 Degrees stopped by the Billboard studio earlier this month to discuss their long-awaited reunion as well as the recording of their new studio album, "2.0." Along with a performance of their new single "Microphone," Nick, Drew, Jeff and Justin put an acoustic spin on one of the biggest hits of their career -- check out the group's take on "Because of You" below:



Following its release in 1998, "Because of You" introduced 98 Degrees to a much larger audience, and eventually peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100 chart. The sugary-sweet love song was part of the group's sophomore album, "98 Degrees and Rising," which also included the hits "I Do (Cherish You)" and "The Hardest Thing."

On Tuesday night (May 28), 98 Degrees kicks off the Package tour alongside New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men. Click here to check out NKOTB member Jordan Knight's dream touring partners, in the latest edition of Pop Shop's "Gimme Five" series.
