With the drop of his self-titled solo album, sexed up image and racy new “Jealous” remix, we’ve been on Nick Jonas sensory overload lately. Which, don’t get us wrong, is a beautiful thing. He’s been under the radar since The Jonas Brothers split last year, but reemerged this summer as a whole new, chiseled he-man. And he knew exactly what he was doing. Over the past few months, the 22-year-old has shredded his shell of innocence, proving to the world that his Disney days are far behind him. From hitting the small screen as an oiled-up fighter on DirecTV’s Kingdom, to dropping NSFW music weekly, it’s hard to keep track of the sexiness. Let’s summarize who the new Nick Jonas is while we celebrate this amazing occurrence.
He’s Milking That Flawless Bod
It feels like this Jonas bro got sexy overnight. First, he posted this unexpected, shirtless selfie (well HELLO, sir).
Then, he graced the cover of Flaunt with a junk and butt-grabbing spread, and there has been no looking back since.
He Talks About Sex, Baby
That promise ring is long gone. While he reveals his girlfriend, Olivia Culpo aka Miss Universe 2012, “isn’t the reason” he took it off, he makes it clear they’re doing the dirty right around 3:40 in the interview below.
He Curses… A Lot
When you heard him drop f-bombs in the “Jealous” remix, you may not have believed your ears. A Jonas brother knows the word “f–k”?!?! Have no fear, shortly after the 8:30 mark in the video above will do the trick.
He’s Taking a Deeper Dive Into R&B
He’s fostering a new sound with soul and R&B-infused pop and we’re into it. He worked with artists like Mike Posner and Angel Haze on his new album, and Hot 97 DJ Ebro even compared him to Justin Timberlake as a “white guy with soul.”
He’s Still Tight With His Family
No hard feelings, guys. He’s cool with his bros and the possibly the hottest new uncle ever. He even says his parents are supportive and “love” his new music. All is good in the Jonas hood.
He Remains True To His Roots
On Sunday night, he released the gospel version of “Jealous” while proving he can damn well SANG.
He’s a Professional Crotch-Grabber
Thank you Now Magazine, for this utterly informative tutorial.
He’s In Love, and You’re Mad About It
Yes, Miss Universe has his heart and his new music reflects it. In this Hot 97 interview, he admitted that they’re “very happy, things are good” and he “get[s] to write great songs about her,” such as “Jealous.” What can we say, she’s got him in chains for her love. Whipped?? Regardless, they’re a ridiculously beautiful couple.
He Can Actually Crack a Joke
And you thought he was the serious type, didn’t you?
He Ditched the Purity Ring and Proves It With On-Camera Sex Scenes

Bye, bye baby Nick.
