Listen to Bruno Mars on iHeartRadio | Listen to Ne-Yo on iHeartRadio | Listen to 98 Degrees on iHeartRadio

Bruno Mars and Ne-Yo have both penned songs for 98 Degrees' comeback album 2.0.  The former boy band tells MTV that they enlisted the Grammy winners not because of their reputations, but because band members connected with the songs the hit makers wrote. 

Nick Lachey says Bruno's track is "the sexiest song on the album."  That song sits alongside "Microphone," the single 98 Degrees dropped earlier this month that made headlines for its sexually suggestive lyrics. 

Since then, they've released the considerably less racy love song "Impossible Things." 

The group's new album will be out on May 7th, ahead of their summer tour with New Kids On The Block and Boyz II Men.
