Nick Lachey is traveling with spirit, elegance and a sense of humor. "What's Left Of Me" is a
picture of a moment in his life, and is as revealing as it is
complete in its musical path of the troubles confronted and life's lessons
That seemingly simple television show propelled the duo into
their next series titled "Nick & Jessica
Variety Hour", broadcast specials on the ABC television network. This
classic series was intended to be a revival of sorts of the 1970's feel good
family show "Sonny & Cher". During their series the couple
visited soldiers, and veterans alike, while on an extended series shoot in
The musician collaborated in the development of eight songs on the album, which, are most noteworthy for their brisk, splendidly orchestrated, classic pop character. On the smash hit song "I Can't Hate You Anymore," he laments, "We built it up to watch it fall, Like we meant nothing at all, I gave and gave the best of me, but couldn't give you what you need, You walked away and stole my life."
In April 2006, MTV offered a candid view inside the daily life of the musician as he geared up to release his CD with the two hour special television presentation of, "Nick Lachey: What's Left Of Me." This broadcast was followed by the MTV world premiere of his new video "What's Left Of Me", next to a behind the scenes special, and candid look inside how the video was made.
He stretched his entrepreneurial
and business talents with the launch of Yfly.com, a chat and social networking
internet site for teens, resembling a weird mix between Myspace, YouTube,
and Microsoft Messenger.
Songs of liberation also fill the CD, like the catchy, "On Your Own,"
where he announces, "I will wait, However long it takes, until you
realize what you've been searching for, Was right here all along." The
album sadly ends with the gracefully meager "Resolution," an amazing
showcase for the singers contributions. Accompanied only by piano, Lachey reveals, "I'm letting go, All I need to learn is along this road, I just
want do be the best man I can be."
The band then struck the
ultimate gold mine when asked to join with Mariah Carey's
on her single, "Thank God I Found You". With this massive attention and exposure, "98 Degrees" reached the
desirable No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, and on the R&B Hip-Hop Singles &
Tracks chart. The song was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.
On top of all that, during 2005 he starred as a a Wall Street stock broker who turns to the jewelry business when the stress of life begins to take its toll on him physically in the flick "The Hard Easy" (2005), about two separate teams of jewel thieves, one low-rent and one upscale, both desperate, who converge on the same score at the exact same time, and a simple job turns out very complicated and very bloody.
Also in 2005, he appeared in the comedy "Bewitched"
(2005) with Nicole Kidman,
about an egocentric actor who thinks he can overshadow an unknown actress in
a part, but unknowingly gets a witch cast in an upcoming television remake
of the classic show "Bewitched". Also in 2007 Nick Lachey appeared
in the horror thriller "Rise" (2007) with Lucy
Liu, a supernatural thriller in which a female reporter wakes up in a
morgue to find herself a member of the undead. She vows revenge against the
sect that put her there and hunts them down.
