     The Jonas Brothers have shocked millions of fans all around the world as they have come back with a new video single, “Sucker.” This song was written by the Jonas Brothers and Ryan Tedder. It was also produced by Louis Bell and Frank Dukes. The video was filmed at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, United Kingdom. The reasoning behind making it was to bring them back from being absent in distinction to the music industry as a group.


     This track is about the significant others of the trio, Priyanka Chopra, Danielle Deleasa, and Sophie Turner. The lyrics “We go together, better than birds of a feather, you and me” emphasize that.


     The instruments that are being used in the production, the drums, the guitar, and some hints of clapping, are used in lots of other music. Which make this song very indistinguishable from other melodies. When we can pinpoint exactly where a song is similar to another, that is a bad sign. Except in this case we can’t pinpoint how it is homogenous to other productions apart from the beat and the instruments that are being utilized.


     Six years ago, their music had more of a childish feel to it, now that they have grown up, the lyrics and the way the music video is presented to fans are more mature yet still very playful. This number has an overall positive vibe. The brothers also synchronize very well.


     It’s a really good song but it just sounds too much like every other hip hop or pop song made in the past year. For example, the song “Feel it Still” by Portugal. The Man has almost the exact same music as“Sucker.”


     Yet, the video is kind of interesting considering the plot and the theme. The brothers wanted to make some of the scenes related to the show, Friends’ introduction.


     The theme of the music video seems like it takes place in the 1950’s or 1960’s. This is because of the outfits or the some of the props used in the production like the high walls inside a library. That just adds more artifactual factors to the video. Another example of something that reminds us of the 50’s are the old television sets that are shown in some parts of the production.  


     If this song was to be used in something other than be a single, it would be used in a montage of something as the background in a movie. The track could also be used for entertainment. It’s not necessary for the song to be used in something, a person can also just listen to it for pure amusement.


     This production was honestly worth the wait, but the wait was way too long for the millions of fans all around the world. I’m sure the fans are very happy that their childhood boys are back and better than ever. Great song, go listen to “Sucker” by the Jonas Brothers.
