Young women, and some men, everywhere are bursting with excitement. Why? The Jonas Brothers have reunited their band and released their first single in six years.

   The Jonas Brothers last released music in 2013, when Joe, Kevin, and Nick went their own professional ways. Joe went on to form dance-pop group DNCE while Kevin stepped out of the spotlight. Nick went on to have a very successful solo career.

Over the course of the first week of March, Kevin, Joe, and Nick were nightly guests on The Late Late Show with James Corden. On their first appearance, it was revealed that Nick was the reason the band split in the first place. The boys also commented that the band got back together because they already spent time together.

The single the Jonas Brother released is titled “Sucker”. Barely a week after its initial release, the song was already at the top of the Billboard charts. At the time of writing this article, the music video has over 64 million views on YouTube.

The song itself is a catchy, lighthearted tune. It combines the elements of Nick’s solo songs and DNCE’s songs. The chorus is especially catchy. The music video can be a little weird at times, but what makes it cute is the fact that Nick and Kevin have their wives featured, while Joe’s fiancée makes an appearance as well.

Overall, “Sucker” is a great kickboard for a reunited band. Here’s to more exciting things to come from the Jonas Brothers.
