The Jonas Brothers release new song 'Sucker' along with video starring their lovebugs
The JoBros are back with a little help from their favorite lovebugs.
In the tune, which celebrates their individual relationships, the brothers sing, “I’m a sucker for you/Say the word and I’d go anywhere blindly.” The video, meanwhile, features the bandmates and their lady friends exploring an Alice in Wonderland-inspired castle landscape dressed in elaborate costumes.
On Thursday, Joe Jonas sent Jonas Brothers’ diehard fans into a tizzy with a tweet confirming new music from the band is on the way. Six years after they originally split, the brothers are making their long-time rumored reunion official. Joe’s tweet included a link the boys’ new single “Sucker” — available to pre-order now. His caption read, “Midnight ET,” the time “Sucker” dropped.
On Friday morning, after the single dropped, the brothers appeared on The Elvis Duran Show and hinted there could be plenty more material to come. “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,” Joe said. “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.”
The brothers will also join The Late Late Show host James Corden for a week-long takeover from Monday, March 4 to Thursday, March 7. They’ll kick the week off by sitting down with Corden for an exclusive interview, sharing their reasons for getting the band back together now. Then, throughout the week, the band will take part in sketches, songs, and various other Late Late Show segments, including “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts,” and “Carpool Karaoke.” Of course, there’ll also be the world premiere musical performance of their new single, “Sucker.”
The Late Late Show tweeted the news on Thursday, with a video of a short clip. “It’s nice to finally be able to tell someone,” says Nick in the clip. “We’ve been keeping this a secret now for almost 7, 8 months.”
The Jonas Brothers first hit the scene, capturing teenage girls and guys’ hearts, back in 2005 after a run on the Disney Channel propelled them into the spotlight. The three brothers, Kevin, Joe and Nick released five albums in four years, before deciding to split in 2009. Joe and Nick both went onto successful music careers (and high-profile romantic relationships) beyond the band, with Joe serving as lead vocalist in funk-pop band DNCE since 2015.
