“S.O.S…” The Jonas Brothers are back, baby! It looks like we didn’t have to wait until the “Year 3000” for them to reunite after all because our favorite childhood trio is making a surprise comeback much earlier than we expected. Comprised of three beloved brothers, The Jonas Brothers formed in 2005 and immediately recorded “Please Be Mine,” which led to their monumental signing with Columbia Records.
Proud of their family name, Joe, Kevin, and Nick initially considered naming their pop group “Sons of Jonas,” but they later settled on the memorable Jonas Brothers instead. The undeniable heartthrobs of the 2000s spent the latter half of their teenage years in the recording studio, starring in their own Disney Channel television series, and touring across the world with some of their generation’s finest pop stars–including Jesse McCartney, the Backstreet Boys, and The Cheetah Girls.
With catchy radio hits like “Burnin’ Up” and “Lovebug,” it’s nearly impossible for us to pick a favorite old school JoBros track, and now they’ve made things even more difficult by treating us to a brand new 2019 single, “Sucker.” A decade after their GRAMMY nomination for Best New Artist and six long years after their devastating split, the Jonas Brothers have joined forces once again to reignite our undying love of classic boy bands. With a forthcoming album and an upcoming documentary with Amazon Studios confirmed, we have one simple message for the Jonas Brothers: we’re most definitely “Still in Love With You.”
