Amazon Prime Video’s ambitious documentary “Chasing Happiness” about the Jonas Brothers is all set to premiere tomorrow, June 4th. The documentary charts the Brothers’ early days of struggle, their rise to fame, and many ebbs and highs the band encountered during its musical journey. The Jonas Brothers are releasing their first album in six years “Happiness Begins” this month. So logically, the documentary shares several behind-the-scenes clips that describe the making of their new studio album. But most importantly, Chasing Happiness fixes its lens on each band member’s individual face-off with the wilderness of a harsh world where they weren’t as famous after the band’s split. Only a day before its release, Amazon has released some exclusive footage from Chasing Happiness. In the video, the electric bolt of charisma, Joe Jonas, talks about feeling betrayed after the band’s split.
The Jonas Brothers Split – And What Caused It
It’s no news to the fans that the Jonas Brothers’ split was indeed an ugly one. Nick Jonas has; in fact, admitted to breaking up the band when he appeared on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden. As a matter of fact, the band-breakup was such a heartbreak for Kevin and Joe, that Nick thought they would never talk to him again. A representative had revealed that the breakup happened over a deep rift over the band’s musical direction. Nick Jonas also claims that after the band’s split he had to spend a ‘couple of years’ trying to rebuild the family he had broken.
Joe Jonas Shades Nick Jonas For Splitting-Up Their Glorious Band
In the Chasing Happiness documentary, Joe Jonas subtly shades Nick Jonas for causing their celebrated band to collapse. Following a news narration, which sends chills down our spine by revisiting the Jonas Brothers’ split, Joe Jonas steps in and reveals his initial reaction to band’s split.
Joe says, “I felt I was lied to. I felt angry.” He later goes on to add that the band was something he loved more than anything. And what was worse about the split-up was that it was indeed caused by someone who Joe cared about a lot. As he talks about the parting of the Jonas Brothers, Joe says,
“And somebody that you cared about so much could take it away from you so quickly. That was heartbreaking.”
Joe Jonas Talks About The Happiness Begins Album And Tour
After the Jonas’ breakup, Joe Jonas stepped in as the lead vocalist for American Pop-band, DNCE. Jonas describes DNCE as his “own small paradise”. For him, DNCE was truly a liberating platform that allowed him to be wild and free.
But now that the Jonas Brothers have reunited, Joe feels that it is only the beginning. He is ready to put his struggles and frustrations behind him, and focus solely on creating the best music.
The Jonas Brothers will release their new album on June 7th. The band’s fifth studio album will also involve a tour set to begin from August 7th and will run for 40 shows.
