New Jersey singer-songwriter and one-third of The Jonas Brothers, Nick Jonas an irresistible new song, "Close," featuring Swedish singer-songwriter Tove Lo. Watch the steamy music video above.
After The Jonas Brothers split in 2013, Nick released his self titled solo album the following year. The artist recently announced his upcoming record, Last Year Was Complicated and explained on Twitter, "When I first started making [Last Year Was Complicated] I thought I knew what it would be about... Then I had a breakup." He also tweeted that "Close" was about how he "literally can't open up and be vulnerable with someone.." He continued in another tweet saying, "Shit is too real sometimes... Reliving some of these real life experiences through this music is hard."
Although it comes from a place of sorrow, "Close" is a catchy, addictive tune with provocative lyrics, an enchanting chorus, and exotic steel drums. The intimate music video shows the struggle of wanting to be close with someone, but being afraid to do so.
Watching the chemistry between Nick and Tove Lo as they tear each other's clothes off has us wondering about whether we'll be seeing them together more in the future. She shared with Entertainment Weekly, “You feed off each other’s energy. We were both covered in mud, bruised up, and bleeding by the end of the shoot—but still with big smiles on our faces. It was awesome... I’ve known Nick as a friend for a couple of years, and working with him was amazing. He’s very talented and I fell in love with the song as soon as I heard the demo.”
Last Year Was Complicated is scheduled to be released on June 10, 2016. Pick it up on Amazon.
