On the Pop Shop Podcast, we chat all things Jonas Brothers and why the time is right for the band’s return.
“This is unbelievable,” Nick Jonas tweeted on March 11, after he found out that Jonas Brothers had debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with their reunion single “Sucker.” The track marked the trio’s first chart-topper. “There was a time I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to be able to make music with my brothers again, let alone have a No. 1 song on the Hot 100."
His two sibling partners in Jonas Brothers had similar reactions: Joe tweeted, “Are you kidding me!?” while Kevin reacted in a video, saying, “I cannot believe it!”
But maybe the Jonas Brothers shouldn’t have been so surprised by the success of “Sucker.”
On the new episode of the Billboard Pop Shop Podcast (listen below), the Pop Shop team chats about the Jonas Brothers’ reunion and return to the charts after a hiatus. The Pop Shoppers discuss why it’s the right time for a JoBros return, how “Sucker” became an out-of-the-box smash, and what they hope to see from the band in the future.
Plus, the Pop Shop team has an interview with LIVVIA! The rising singer/songwriter's latest single "Damn" is currently on the Billboard Pop Songs chart, and Keith and Katie caught up with her to talk about the top 40 hit, her almost decade in the music industry, what she has planned next, her interesting connection to the Jonas Brothers and more.
