Then + Now: ’00s One-Hit Wonders

If you happen to be a ’90s baby, chances are you were just old enough to appreciate the musical giftedness of the early 2000s. It was an era adorned with punk rockers and bedazzled pop stars with an overall timeless essence that seems more or less present in today’s sound (or, at the very least, today’s style). So herein lies the big question: where have they all gone?

Have the stars we once looked up to as pioneers of a forgotten era of pop been demoted to, dare we say, one-hit wonder status? Because we’ve been feeling nostalgic lately — and because it’s the only appropriate excuse to crank out our MP3 players — we’re catching up on the artists who owned the naughties.

Check out our gallery above to see what artists like Aaron Carter, Baha Men and Hoku have been up to since releasing the hit that first shot them to stardom.
