It’s been a while Spartans, but our boys are back. On February 28th, Nick, Kevin, and Joe Jonas rose from the grave, and released a new single titled “Sucker”.


The Jonas Brothers formed their band in 2005. Just shortly after, all three brothers became involved with Disney; starting their own TV show titled “Jonas”, and being a part of the Camp Rock two-part series.


Throughout their time with Disney, the brothers started becoming more and more popular, putting out their content into a broader spectrum. They released an album every year of their time together (2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009) with hit songs on each, which is why when the Jonas Brothers announced their split on October 9, 2013, I was shocked to say the least.


The Brothers had felt the split coming, but were too scared and upset to admit it. Nick Jonas, youngest member of the Jonas Brothers, stated, “…this train will fall off the tracks without really getting real about some of the concerns and some of the limitations we may feel as individuals in the group” (Billboard).


Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas went on to lead normal lives; Kevin got married and had children, Joe became part of a new band called DNCE, and Nick stayed relative in the music industry as well.


And on February 28th of this year, following their six-year hiatus, the brothers created a new Instagram page, their first post stating, “Midnight ET #Sucker” (


Since the release of their new single, the Jonas Brothers have also released a music video, been on countless late night TV shows, and had plenty of interviews along with that, most notably being James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke.


With each television appearance and interview, the brothers seem to be very optimistic about the future of their careers. I have no doubt that because the brothers were able to take a break and reevaluate what they hope for, their career as a boyband will succeed.
