The year is 2005. A group of brothers releases their first album, “It’s About Time”, grabbing the hearts of teenage girls everywhere. Over the years, they release more music through Disney Channel, have their own TV show, and are part of the favorite Disney Channel Original Movie series: Camp Rock 1 and 2. In 2013, to the dismay of fans everywhere, the band officially announced their split and cancellation of their work-in-progress album, V. The brothers went their separate ways. Kevin, the oldest, focused on family and traded music for real estate. Joe went on to join another band, DNCE, where he would write Cake By the Ocean and Kissing Strangers. Nick, the youngest, went solo, releasing popular albums and starring in movies like Jumanji 2. All hope of the brothers reuniting in the music industry were lost, until recently.

On March 1, the Jonas Brothers released a new single: “Sucker”, one day after the Jonas Brothers announced that they were officially getting back together. The song offers a catchy tune and great start for the Jonas Brothers as they reenter the music industry as a band. The song is a tribute to the members’ wives and fiance. Lyrics such as “we go together better than birds of a feather, you and me” and “you say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly” display the love and devotion that the band members have for their wives and fiance. Some have a tinge of creepy and suggest stalker vibes, such as “I follow you through the dark, can’t get enough” and “any road you take, you know that you’ll find me”. However, listeners can also see the previous lyrics as sweet dedication. 3 minutes doesn’t seem long enough after listening to the song, and fans want more. As if the song wasn’t good enough, the Jonas Brothers also made a music video for it that is sure to grab people’s attention. Kevin’s wife, Danielle Jonas; Nick’s wife Priyanka Chopra-Jonas, and Joe’s fiance, Sophie Turner, all starred in the music video. The music video featured elements from The Favourite and the Royal Family.

For fans who are wanting more, the Jonas Brothers will be on The Late Late Show with James Corden from March 4- March 7.
