VIDEO: Check Out Music Video for New Nick Jonas Single 'Chains'
This morning, Nick Jonas debuted his new music video to the first single from his upcoming, yet-to-be titled solo album on Island Records. Titled 'Chains', the black-and-white video can be viewed below.
Nick Jonas, who most recently appeared on Broadway in 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying', launched his professional career at age 8 as 'Young Scrooge/Tiny Tim' in A Christmas Carol and followed it up with roles in the Broadway productions of LES MISERABLES, Beauty and the Beast and Annie Get Your Gun with Reba McEntire. In the last year, he's returned to his roots on the live stage, taking on the role of 'Marius' in London's West End production of LES MISERABLES as well as at the 25th Anniversary Concert at The O2 Arena. Most recently, he starred as 'Link Larkin' alongside Harvey Fierstein andMarissa Jaret Winokur in the Hollywood Bowl's production of Hairspray.
After a song written by Nick and his father found its way to Columbia Records, Nick was signed as a solo artist. His brothers Kevin and Joe were brought on board and the Jonas Brothers story began. Though the project never took off and they were dropped from Columbia, the industry had noticed and the Jonas Brothers were signed by Hollywood Records. In August 2007, the band released their self-titled debut album, which was soon certified platinum.
In 2008, the Jonas Brothers launched two sold-out tours and released their second album, A Little Bit Longer, becoming the first artist ever to have three albums on the Billboard Top 10 at once (Jonas Brothers, A Little Bit Longer, and the Camp Rock soundtrack) and receiving a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. In 2009, they released Lines, Vines and Trying Times, which became their second No. 1 album in one year. They also released the film Jonas Brothers: 3-D Concert Experience. In 2010, Nick launched a solo effort: Nick Jonas and the Administration and released the album Who I Am.
