When the Jonas Brothers broke up in 2013, they broke all our hearts. But that's water under the bridge. In the last 24 hours, all that's been forgiven. Why? You know why, but I'm going to repeat it... out loud... for the 50th time. The JoBros are officially back!!!
Fans suspected that Nick, Joe, and Kevin had something in the works when the Jonas Brothers' Instagram and Twitter pages were suddenly reactivated in 2018, but Nick quickly squashed the rumors at the time. Sly boy.
But the big moment just happened, it's finally here, and even Dr. Phil is "SHOOK" because of it: The Jonas Brothers' first single as a revived boy band just dropped at midnight. 'Sucker' is here, and it's all kinds of wonderful.
To celebrate the release, the Jonas Brothers are partnering up with James Corden of The Late Late Show for a whole week's worth of JoBros infused content. The takeover, also known as #LateLateJonas week, will kick off on Monday and end on Friday.
Like You've Never Seen Them Before
For the first time in probably a long time, the term "like you've never seen them before" actually applies to them. Why? For starters, Nick and Kevin are married: Kevin to Danielle Jonas (since 2009, almost a decade!). Nick just got married to Priyanka Chopra in December (something Nick references in the first verse, where he sings, "I'm feeling heat in December when you're 'round me"), and Joe is engaged to Sophie Turner (since October 2017) with plans to marry later this year.
If you don't think that's changed everything for this beloved boy band, just wait till you see the video (down below).
On the upbeat 'Sucker,' the siblings extol their obsession with their respective loves. “I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things no one knows about you (about you),” they sing on the chorus, says Rolling Stone.
I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things no one knows about you.
Their Wives Are in the Music Video With Them
Ok, now for the reason we're all here! The best part of all of this is arguably the over the top music video they released along with the song... which the brothers star in alongside their stunning wives (and fiancée) as they indulge in a lavish setting at a huge mansion.
I know this isn't the first time this has ever been done in the history of music videos, but it sure feels like it. Am I the only one tired of seeing married men dance and act suggestively on stage and in music videos with scantily clad (and sometimes even naked) women who aren't their wives?! What, it's supposed to be okay because it's a performance? Sorry, babe, but "she ain't pretending to grind up on him, she actually grindin'. For real."
'Sucker' is different - it's ridiculously fun and so refreshingly hot (for not-so-typical reasons). In the video, the brothers and their ladies sing, dance, bathe, feast, and get frisky.
Remember when they Made Purity Rings Cool?
This is by far the sexiest music video they've ever released, which reminds me: Who remembers when the three Christian brothers made purity rings great again by showing them off during a red carpet interview? "They're purity rings, said Joe, "and they're promises to ourselves and to God that we'll stay pure until marriage."
They're purity rings... and they're promises to ourselves and to God that we'll stay pure until marriage.
Assuming they've maintained that promise, Joe has to wait a bit longer until he can get busy. Was the shot of Joe restrained by ropes while Sophie looks on with thirsty eyes a nod to this? If so, that's hysterical and awesome.
On the other hand, Nick, the lucky man, is clearly enjoying all the benefits of married life with his psychotically gorgeous (and equally lucky) wife, Priyanka. Pay attention, rappers! Instead of a bunch of "bitches" twerking in thongs, Priyanka shows us how it's done by leading her husband away for a private dance (a PG version, of course). Slay, queen!
Maybe it's true what some studies indicate... that married people who are religious have hotter sex lives? Who knows! All I know is Nick and Priyanka's chemistry (more like active combustion) is giving me wedding fever.
It Gets Steamy toward the End
SOS, the JoBros are all grown up!
As the video nears the end, the Jonas wives lead their perspective husbands seductively away, as Joe is left bound in ropes. Poor Joe, hang in there. Your time will come!
The emphasis is on Priyanka, who struts like a queen through the master bedchamber of the palace. She throws off her outer garment/cape (whatever it is, can I please have one?) and approaches her hot hubby, who waits at the foot of a four-post bed fit for a king. Yas Girl, collect that marital debt!
But seriously, what I love about this whole thing is it presents partying in the context of the family being silly together while showing seductive romance between (actual) husbands and wives.
