Never in a million years would anyone expect one of the most popular boy bands in “Generation Z” history to return, until now. The Jonas Brothers--Kevin, 30; Joe, 28; and Nick, 26 --made their grand comeback after six years with their new single titled “Sucker,” released on March 1. The boy band called an end to their music together after realizing it was best to individually pursue music instead of compromising their family relationship. Since then, they have supported each other’s separate careers every step of the way
“Sucker” combines what the Jonas Brothers stand for: pop rock, dancing beats, and a “trip down memory lane” for the original fans of the boy band. Like many of their past hits, the love song starts off with Joe’s recognizably high and full tone. The fast beat draws parallels to the song’s meaning that the boys are testing their limits and trying new things when they’re around their soulmates. Although Nick Jonas successfully led a solo career and recorded more pop songs during the band’s break, the siblings’ new release reminds listeners about Joe’s DNCE career and brings back the original sound of the Jonas Brothers.
The Jonas Brothers released their music video the same night, and brings a new level of energy to the song. The video features the brothers’ fiancées and wives including Danielle Jonas, Sophie Turner, and Priyanka Chopra. An opening image of an old castle with what seems to be balloons hanging outside of windows welcomes the audience to the band’s surprise return. The video combines renaissance and modern fashion in a clean but chaotic way, and emphasizes bright colors to contrast the darkness of the background. This playful imagery and flashy visuals celebrate the renewal of the Jonas Brothers’ fandom and reminds long-time fans that the Jonas Brothers are back and better than ever.
There’s nothing better than a “blast from the past,” especially when the “JoBros” have been missed for so long. You’ll become a “sucker” for this big reunion and will definitely be “dancing on top of cars” after listening to this hit single!
