Expecting comparisons to the solo albums by *NSYNC stars Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez, and Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees star Nick Lachey tells Voice of America, “I think we’re all doing very, very different kinds of music. Ultimately, I hope fans will like the songs and me as a singer. I guess there might be a small percentage of people that it could be a problem for, but I did the album for the fans that were still loyal to 98 Degrees, and as I evolve as a singer and hopefully tap into new fans.”
