The Jonas Brothers are back and they’re Burnin’ Up
It has been six years since the Jonas Brothers broke their fans' hearts and announced they were splitting up. But the wait is finally over! Jonas Brother fans all over the world were shocked when the three brothers dropped their latest single, “Sucker,” last Friday at midnight. They also dropped the music video for the song, which already has over 26 million views, and features Nick's wife Priyanka Chopra, Joe's fiancée Sophie Turner and Kevin's wife Danielle Jonas.
With the debut of their new single, the JoBros took their new song “Sucker” as well as some of their old hits and performed a secret show at The Box Theater in New York City last Friday. The trio's concert lineup included "Burnin' Up," "Year 3000," "SOS" and "That's Just the Way We Roll."
It looks like the brothers' new single will be the first of many hits to come. Nick, Joe and Kevin appeared on The Elvis Duran Show last week and shared that "Sucker" is just one of many, many songs they have been working on.
Middle brother Joe Jonas explained, "When we started to figure out what the sound was going to be like — balancing Nick's sound, DNCE's sound and, to be truthful, Kevin bringing so much heart into this. It's been incredible — his stories, his family and everything that he has going on now, it was really important to be able to blend the three and so, we have probably 30, 40 songs recorded that we can't wait to release."
Kevin, Joe and Nick had formed the Jonas Brothers band in 2005, but in 2013, all the brothers decided it was best to go their separate ways and disbanded it. In an interview with Robin Roberts back in 2013, the oldest brother, Kevin, said, "I think it was time, and for us it took some time getting there, but we feel like it's time that the Jonas Brothers come to an end.”
Six years later, the brothers have had a change of heart and have decided to start making music again, and their fans couldn’t be any happier.
Abigail Betts, sophomore at Salisbury University, was excited about the Jonas Brothers reunion and nostalgic about their music.
“It makes me so happy that the Jonas Brothers are making music again,” Betts said. “Growing up, I was such a fan, and it brings back so many memories listening to their new song.”
The nostalgia of the band reuniting is setting in for millions of JoBro fans around the world. Below is a gallery of photos of the Jonas Brothers through the years to bring back some memories of the good ol’ days.
