Nick Jonas might be the youngest of the Jonas Brothers, but he’s the first one to attempt a solo career without his brothers backing him up. What’s more impressive is the fact that Jonas’ new band, called Nick Jonas & The Administration, is made up of three members of Prince‘s band, The New Power Generation, as well as the JoBros’ producer, John Fields. Is he going to become the artist formerly known as Nick Jonas?? Or maybe he’ll start Prince-ifying song titles like “Can’t Have U” and “Time 4 Me 2 Fly.” We can only hope!
Jonas told People, “With three of the four guys being part of the New Power Generation, the funk R & B rock style we were going for is definitely there.” If you were wondering what this side project means for his day job, Nick clears that up. “This is something that can definitely co-exist with the Jonas Brothers,” he said, assuring his fans that this isn’t the end for the boy band. “I’ve never really stood center stage before. It’s going to be different but I’m looking forward to it.” The new band goes on tour in January and has an album coming out on February 2. [Photo: GettyImages]
