Joe Jonas Enjoys Second Stab At Fame

Pop star Joe Jonas appreciates the “unique situation” his second chance at a music career has afforded him.

The 26 year old first found fame as a teenage member of sibling boy band The Jonas Brothers. The group disbanded in 2013 and earlier this year Joe formed a new group, called DNCE, which is picking up rave reviews and positive feedback from the public. The singer accepts it will be hard to replicate the success he had with his brothers Nick and Kevin but he grateful to get the chance to try.

“Doing Round 2 is a unique situation,” he told USA Today. “I know how rare it is to get second chances in the music industry. The difference versus Round 1 is that I have a lot of freedom to create something I’m passionate about,” as well as “time to step back and be like, ‘OK, what kind of music do I want to do?'”

Joe knows firsthand how quickly things can fall apart if a project is rushed – during a hiatus from The Jonas Brothers in 2011 he released a solo album, called Fastlife, which failed to set the charts alight.

“(It was) a classic case of too many cooks in the kitchen, whether it was producers or the label,” he explained. “I had a year to make the record and release it and tour it, so for any artist, that’s no time at all. It was a very rushed situation.”

While his solo career faltered, his younger brother Nick has managed to succeed with his own music, thanks to hits including Chains and Jealous, something Joe never feels when considering his former bandmate’s achievements; he is just happy Nick’s hard work is paying off.

“We’re very supportive of each other,” he smiled. “It’s cool to see that we can both have a place in the marketplace and music and it’s no competition; it’s so different musically. We know that it’s our individual times to take that journey ourselves and there’s no hard feelings about it. It’s genuinely just like, ‘Let’s see where this goes for each other’.”
