It's been three years since the Jonas Brothers announced their official split- although it seems much longer. Since they've parted ways, the brothers have kept busy with their own endeavors. Kevin, the oldest of the trio, got married to longtime girlfriend Daniella Deleasa with who he welcomed in a baby girl, starred in his reality show Married To Jonas and has released several game apps. Making him the only brother to completely step back from music.
While Kevin was taking on the daddy duties, Nick and Joe continued to purse music. However, they did so separately. Nick Jonas decided on the solo route and released two solo albums-Nick Jonas (2014) and most recently Last Year Was Complicated (2016) which includes features from Tove Lo, Ty Dolla $ign and Big Sean. The features alone show the overt shift in Nick's musical content and intended audience.
Joe, like Nick, started out as a solo artist after the split and related his first solo album Fastlife in 2011. However, following the album's release Joe spent sometime confused as to whether he wanted to continue on as a solo artist. Ultimately, Joe decided to form DNCE (pronounced DNCE or dance), a pop rock band.
Despite their different paths, one thing is for sure, both Nick and Joe have been able to continue their success in the music world and theres numbers to prove it. Both brothers are simultaneously charting on Billboard 40. Nick Jonas' single "Close" featuring Tove Lo is currently holding down the No. 24 spot, while DNCE's to single "Cake By The Ocean" is at No.31. DNCE's second single "Toothbrush" also managed to snatch a spot on the Top 100 at No.52 (major climb from last week's 70 spot). Nick's "Close" and DNCE's "Cake By The Ocean" have both gone Gold, Platinum and 2x Platinum in a number of countries.
Which brother's sounds will go on to dominate the charts and radio?
