It’s not all about his mostly shirtless performances on the MTV hit series “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica,” but that’s certainly one of the more aesthetically pleasing points in the budding career of boy band star turned reality show staple Nick Lachey.
Actually, he’s a pretty talented musician too and as both one of the founding members of the pop band “98 Degrees,” and as a solo artists, Nick and mates have racked up millions of album sales worldwide.
And along the way he dated, married and divorced singer/celebutante Jessica Simpson in a relationship about as high profile as they come. In fact, their newlywed over-exposure on MTV catapulted them in to a whole new realm of celeb status. Still, he managed to release a solo album in 2003 at the height of the frenzy and followed up with a second, more successful solo effort in 2006.
