After six years apart the Jonas Brothers have decided to make a comeback into the world of pop music. The brothers originally split up due to some family issues as well as not being able to agree on the type of music that they wanted to produce. While being apart, the brothers began their own lives. Nick got married to Indian actress, singer and film producer Priyanka Chopra. Kevin has been married for 10 years now and has children of his own. Joe is planning to marry his fiancée very soon. After much discussion, the group decided to attend family counseling in hopes to re-establish the bond that was broken.
Together, they spent a year working with each other and growing closer as brothers. Not too long after they finished counseling, they started working on a documentary. During the filming there was a lot of conversation about bringing the group back and possibly partaking in a reunion tour. Many people thought it was fake news until the trio announced March 1 that they were coming back together and that they would be releasing their new single “Sucker” later that day.
Nick Jonas mentioned in an interview that during the documentary the brothers realized there was a magic that was missing in their lives, and that being with each other was where they were meant to be. They then chose to play around with some music, and everything fell into place.
Before they announced their reunion to the public, the band ran into Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas at the airport. The trio had the whole crew there and were afraid that the secret was going to slip out if they told him about the band’s reunion. Joe Jonas came up with a quick lie and stated that they were on vacation. Somehow, Will.i.am believed Joe and the secret stayed a secret until they released the news publicly. The hit single now has over 49 million views on YouTube and ranks third in Apple Music’s top charts.
This is the best thing that has happened to people who grew up listening to the Jonas Brothers because they are finally a group again. Over the last six years, fans have pleaded with the Jonas Brothers to reunite, and now the time has finally come. The band has yet to confirm whether or not more songs will be released in the upcoming future however, sources have speculated fans can expect to see more of them.
Personally, I have a mixed opinion when it comes to the band’s homecoming. The inner child in me is screaming with joy and is crazy excited to go see them in concert the next time they are in town. However, the adult me says, who cares?
People are very hyped up that they are back together again, and social media is booming with all the news and excitement. For the people who have followed each and every brother from the start, and for me the childhood fan, we can’t wait to see where this new journey takes them.
