VIDEO: Jonas Brothers Talk Break Up on GOOD MORNING AMERICA
GOOD MORNING AMERICA, ABC
Yesterday, the Jonas Brothers confirmed reports that they would be breaking up 'for now.' The New Jersey-based brothers appeared on ABC's GOOD MORNING AMERICA to explain to their fans the reasons behind their decision, which came three weeks after they canceled their concert tour, citing a "deep rift" in the band. Watch the appearance below!
The Jonas Brothers burst onto the music scene in August 2007 with their self-titled debut album, which included the hit single "S.O.S." The song soared to #1 on iTunes, and the album climbed to the top five of the Billboard charts and was soon certified double platinum.
With the release of the band's second album, A Little Bit Longer, the Jonas Brothers became 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. In 2009, they released Lines, Vines and Trying Times, a global hit that became their second #1 album in one year.
They have sold a combined 20 million units worldwide, earned over 40 Gold and Platinum record certifications and own the Guinness World Record for "Most Singles to Enter Straight into the U.S. Top 20 in a Year by a Group," with five singles in 2009. They received their first Grammy nomination in 2008 for Best New Artist, and have won nearly 50 awards across the globe, including an American Music Award.
