After rumors of a reunion, it's finally official: new music from the Jonas Brothers is on the way. On Thursday, Feb. 28, the band shared the news on Instagram, teasing a promo photo for their song called "Sucker" that's dropping at midnight EST on Friday. In the colorful picture, Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas are back and better than ever. And based on all the crying and heart-eye emojis that instantly flooded the IG comments section, fans could not be more ready.
And that's not all — the JoBros also teased an upcoming Carpool Karaoke appearance on James Corden's The Late Late Show. Because when these guys make a comeback, they really do go all out. Along with the preview video, the band wrote on Instagram, "We’re baaaccckkkk… @latelateshow #LateLateJonas." And more details appeared on the Late Late Show's own Instagram page, which announced an ENTIRE week's worth of Jonas content:
"Hey you. The @JonasBrothers are BACK and to celebrate @nickjonas @joejonas and @kevinjonas are taking over the #LateLateShow! #LateLateJonas week starts Monday night at 12:37am on CBS"
It's unclear what exactly that whole week will entail, but considering their new single drops in less than 24 hours, a performance of that would be a pretty solid guess.
Rumors of a Jonas Brothers reunion first spread in mid-February when Us Weekly reported that the guys were joining forces again — not just for new music, but also for a documentary. At the time, Us Weekly claimed the band was changing its name to just JONAS, but when looking at the promo art now, it appears they're still staying true to their roots after all. Plus, the band's Instagram page is called "Jonas Brothers."
Regardless of what name they go by, it's exciting to see the trio back in action, especially since they first called it quits in 2013. In 2016, Nick took the blame for breaking up the band in an interview on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live, according to Billboard. He said at the time, "It was a very tough conversation and it left the family kind of shaken up for a little while. I mean we were about to start a tour. We were two days from starting a tour."
Nick also clarified in that same WWHL appearance:
"We're good now. I have a beautiful niece. My brother has a family. Joe's band DNCE is doing very well. It's good for everybody and it's good that it happened because I think we all grew from it, but it was very challenging for a little while."
And if they were "good" back in 2016, you can bet they're doing great now — based on the fact that they're finally releasing new music and doing an entire week of The Late Late Show.
In the time since the Jonas Brothers' split, each of the guys has grown up in major ways. Now in 2019, Kevin is married to Danielle Jonas and has two daughters, Joe is currently engaged to Sophie Turner, and Nick recently married Priyanka Chopra with multiple elaborate and beautiful ceremonies. Their personal lives have blossomed, and as seen by their many photos on social media, they've been supporting one another along the way.
Now that they're diving back into music, they'll likely be bringing so much new perspective to their songs. And to say fans can't wait would be a major understatement.
