I have to admit, I did not see this one coming.
The brothers split from working with each other back in 2013, citing “complications within the group.”
In the years since they’ve each taken on their own projects: Nick Jonas released successful solo material that peaked with his debut solo single, “Jealous,” while Joe Jonas fronted DNCE who had a massive debut single in “Cake By The Ocean.”
Kevin Jonas hasn’t released music on his own and has been focusing on family life with his two daughters and wife, Danielle.
Now, they’re eying a comeback under the name JONAS. The reunion will entail new music, new live dates, and a documentary.
Last year, the trio reactivated their long-dormant Instagram account.
Simon Boyle of The Sun reports, “This is going to be one of the biggest music reunions in years. It’s no secret that things weren’t great by the end of the Jonas Brothers, but blood is thicker than water and they’re healed their rift in the years since the split. After enjoying solo success and taking time to work on passion projects, they feel that now is the right time to get back together.”
Boyle says that the cancellation was due to “a deep rift” between the brothers and “a big disagreement over their music direction.”
The fan reaction to the news has been pretty crazy!
