The Jonas Brothers have released their comeback single ‘Sucker’ today, Friday (29.02.19) and it is truly something special.
The band – made up of siblings Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas – sent their fans into overdrive after blacking out all of their social media profiles. Us Weekly reported that their first new music since 2009’s ‘Lines, Vines and Trying Times’ is set to drop this week, with their new record, which is said to be titled ‘JONAS’, set to follow. The steamy visuals see their the threesome have a special cameo appearance from their wives. Priyanka Chopra married to Nick, Sophie Turner engaged to Joe Jonas as well as Danielle Jonas who is married to the eldest brother of the group Kevin, are flirty and fun making for a very interesting video.
Though the ‘Lovebug’ hitmakers hadn’t commented on the speculation, Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander confirmed the reunion was happening after Nick let the news slip to him. Speaking to The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column, Olly spilled: “He did tell me they were reuniting and he was like, ‘You cannot tell anybody’. I was like, ‘OK, I’m keeping your secret, Nick’.”
According to Bangshowbiz, there has also been talk of the three of them working on a documentary to accompany their record. A source said recently: “This is going to be one of the biggest music reunions in years. It’s no secret that things weren’t great by the end of the Jonas Brothers, but blood is thicker than water and they’ve healed their rift in the years since the split. After enjoying solo music success and taking time to work on passion projects, they feel that now is the right time to get back together.”
The group were formed in 2005 and were very successful, selling over 20 million records worldwide, but a “deep rift” and “a big disagreement over their music direction” saw the trio cancel their 2013 comeback tour just two days in.
Back in 2015, Joe said a reunion “could easily happen”. The ‘Cake By The Ocean’ singer shared: “Seeing where things will lead us. It’s easy to say we’re done and that we’re never doing it again, but then we both look at each other and go, ‘We obviously get along.’
And who knows – years from now we could be like, ‘All right, let’s make a record.’ It could easily happen.”
