Nick Jonas Recruits Ty Dolla $ign, Big Sean & More for New Album

The album finally arrived after many weeks of hype and promotion. Nick Jonas couldn’t be more proud of the project, and most of all, the people he was able to recruit to feature on and be a part of the album creation with him.

It was less than two years ago when the pop artist released his self-titled album, and now the the Jonas heartthrob has released his newest album, Last Year Was Complicated.

Reviews have been extremely positive towards the artist who left his brotherly-boy band the Jonas Brothers to star a solo career. At first it seemed the artist was starting off on the wrong foot, with a child-like Bieber voice, but after a few years to develop his sound, he found his element in this poppy-electronic vibe that is both sexy and exhilarating. The album had some amazing collabs and support, only demonstrating how the Disney star has come out of his shell and has made a name for himself in the industry. He has become a man! Some of these special guests on the album include Big Sean, Ty Dolla $ign, Tove Lo, and NBA legend, Allen Iverson. Needless to say, Jonas was very humbled by and appreciative of their contributions to the project.

Jonas admits:

“I’ve been making this record for a year and a half… Pouring everything I have into it… When I first started making I thought I knew what it would be about… Then I had a breakup. It then became very clear what this thing would be about… And that I would need to dig really deep.”

How really deep, Jonas. Though unfortunate that the album is just like any other break-up album, there are some extremely catchy and well-produced tracks that stand on their own! These include songs like “Voodoo,” “Champagne Problems,” “Touch,” and of course the hit single of the album that features an amazing collaboration with Tove Lo “Close.” You can watch the music video below.

During the week of release, all Jonas could do was tweet manically in a Kanye-like way on Twitter, to explain to his fans and followers that this project has been a trying labor of love, relationship hardship, and heartache:

Apparently for this record, Jonas really had to dig deep into his thoughts and feelings, get a little psychoanalytic with himself, and be true, which was difficult for him to face. Nonetheless, he pushed through and created this. Jonas revealed that each track listed on this compilation is both “personal and meaningful” to him, and that we are here to ride along his roller coaster journey of understanding his emotions… Yippee?
