Jonas return

Derrick Voss, A&E Writer

Disney-promoted pop music was a huge part of many teenagers’ childhoods and instills nostalgia in many. The Jonas Brothers were formed in 2005 by brothers Joe, Nick and Kevin Jonas but were launched into superstardom in 2008 after starring in the Camp Rock movies. By 2009 they sold over eight million albums. Winning over the hearts of millions of teenagers around the world, the band would go on to sell over 17 million units but abruptly broke up and cancelled their fifth studio album in 2013.

The three brothers pursued their own successful endeavors, including solo-projects, reality television and even real-estate. To the delight of many nostalgia-filled high school and college students, the Jonas Brothers reunited on March 1, after nearly six years, to release the single “Sucker”. The track did incredibly well, becoming the 34th song to debut at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the band’s first number one single.

It is hard to tell if this is going to be a lasting reunion or if the Jonas Brothers will be releasing a new album, but their return to music excites many. “Sucker” has the typical sound of a 2019 upbeat pop rock song, perfect for clubs and for the radio. The focus is definitely placed on the vocals as they are far more prominent than the band’s instrumental talents, with a repetitive hook and plenty of catchy harmonies. A catchy whistle melody carries the track along smoothly with a typical drum sequence.

“Sucker” has already exploded onto the charts and should be heard often throughout the summer and beyond. As for the Jonas Brothers reunion, not too much is known about their future but the release of the single instilled hope in fans everywhere.
