Nick Lachey Sings COVID-19 Version Of 98 Degrees Hit
Nick Lachey has rewritten the lyrics to “The Hardest Thing,” a song by his group 98 Degrees, to reflect the realities of COVID-19.
“It’s the hardest thing we’ve ever had to do / To stay stuck in our house, just watching all this bad news / It’s the hardest thing we’ve ever had to try / To stay six feet apart when we go outside,” he sings.
“Nothing to do, no sports on TV / Washed my hands so much that they started to bleed / Damn this quarantine / It’s the hardest thing we’ve ever had to do / But in the end it’s worth it / Together we will get through.”
Lachey ends the a cappella performance in his house with “stay safe everybody” before being tackled by son Camden, 7.
The original version of “The Hardest Thing,” penned by Steve Kipner and David Frank, was the third single from 98 Degrees’ second studio album 98 Degrees and Rising.
Music legend Neil Diamond recently changed the chorus of "Sweet Caroline" to encourage people to wash their hands during the COVID-19 outbreak.
