Flashback Friday — 1998 Edition

Wassssup? Welcome to 1998! Last week, we got groovy with some sexual tunes from 1999 and this week we're going to get jiggy with some of the phatest hip-hop & R&B tunes of 1998. It's the year 1998 and Leonard DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are fogging up the silver screen with their steamy hit Titanic (spoiler alert: She let go...), boys and girls hearts are shattered by the news the babetacular Posh Spice and soccer hunk David Beckham are engaged, Elton John went from being a rocketman a knightman (he was knighted, tight!)  and Peyton got drafted to the Indian Colts. 


Let's boogy into 1998 and make speculations about which one of this gnarly tunes was playing when Bill and Monica totally didn't have sexual relations.
