Jonas Brothers leave fans “Burnin’ Up”

    On March 11, the Jonas Brothers’ new music video “Sucker” became the number one song on the Hot 100 Billboard.

    “Entertainment Tonight” revealed a sneak-peek of the Jonas Brothers’ weeklong take-over of “The Late Late Show” with James Corden, which premiered from March 4-8. Throughout those episodes, the trio officially announced their long-awaited return to the stage since 2013.

    In the “Carpool Karaoke” clip, Corden picked up each brother individually before exclaiming, “Wait. Hang on. Is what I think is happening, is it happening?”

    In response, the brothers declared their reunion in unison and celebrated by immediately blasting “Burnin’ Up” which was one of their biggest hits in 2008.

    “It’s nice to be able to finally tell somebody,” said Nick Jonas in an interview on “The Late Late Show.” “We’ve kept this secret now for almost seven, eight months.”

    Apparently, fans were accurate when they speculated a possible return of the boy band when the trio reactivated their joint Instagram account, @jonasbrothers, in January.

    On March 1, the brothers released their comeback single and music video, “Sucker.” The film portrayed colorful, lavish scenes of the three couples together on a huge estate while the brothers sang about being “suckers” for the women.

    Shortly after the video was released, Joe Jonas tweeted, “We really had the best time shooting this video in England with our family. Hope you guys love it. Feels good to be back.”

    The video features J-sisters Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Danielle Jonas, and Sophie Turner. Danielle and Kevin tied the knot in 2009, Turner and Joe Jonas announced their engagement in 2017, and Priyanka and Nick got married in December 2018.

    “I don’t even know what to say at this point,” said Kevin Jonas in an Instagram video he posted about the success of their song. “Thank you so much for all the love for “Sucker,” for the continued support, so much more to come.”  

    The band broke up in 2013, since the brothers wanted to focus on solo projects, marriages, and other works. However, they were brought back when working on a documentary together about their lives.

    “We literally spent a year basically doing therapy, working through some things, and figuring out what this chapter would look like,” revealed Nick on “The Late Late Show.” “We spent a lot of time filming again, and then I think we realized there was a magic there we missed.”

    Due to the Jonas Brothers’ success in reuniting, they are planning to release new original music dedicated to their fans.
