I’m sure I speak for myself and many others when I say that our 11-year-old selves were in shock last Friday.
The Jonas Brothers announced that they would be dropping a new single — after roughly a six-year hiatus. The world was, more or less, taken by surprise:
The brothers — Nick, now 26, Joe, now 29, and Kevin, now 31 — announced their reunion Thursday morning via social media, along with the single they were releasing, “Sucker”:
The Jonas Brothers gained massive popularity — mainly within the tween girl demographic — in the early to mid-2000s through their appearances on Disney Channel (I can tell you for a fact that they were definitely on my bedroom wall some time in the 10-12 age range). Their first album, It’s About Time, was released in August 2006. They announced their breakup in 2013, and their most recent studio album was in — get this — 2009 (Was that really 10 years ago?)
In terms of their newest release, I give it a 7/10 — it’s definitely catchy, but it’s no “Year 3000”. What do you think of “Sucker”?
