The Jonas Brothers have once again proved that they are on top of the teen scene. Their new album, A Little Bit Longer, has hit number one on the Billboard chart. Not a big shocker, really. It was pretty clear that the boys would do this. After all, they are the Jonas Brothers and nearly every teenage girl in America loves them.
It’s their first number one album on the Billboard Charts — which I find pretty hard to believe. Over an half million people bought the CD since its release on August 12th, making it the third biggest album debut this year after Lil’ Wayne and Coldplay. The coolest part about how successful their CD is doing is their 2007 album which included hits like “SOS” and “Hold On” and the soundtrack from their movie premiering earlier this summer on Disney Channel, Camp Rock holds position number eight. On the soundtrack, the Jonas Brothers perform the song, “Play My Music” and Joe Jonas — the middle Jonas — does a duet with Demi Lovato, whose album comes out this September. Their duet, which was proven quite popular, is called “This is Me.”
The songs on their new album include: “BB Good,” “Burnin’ Up,” “Shelf,” “One Man Show,” “Lovebug,” “Tonight,” “Can’t Have You,” “Video Girl,” “Pushin’ Me Away,” “Sorry,” “Got Me Going Crazy,” and “A Little Bit Longer.” The CD is excellent and my favorite song is “Video Girl.” The boys sing, “A Little Bit Longer,” which is about Nick’s diabetes. The Jonas Brothers are bit on charity work, especially raising awareness (and money!) about diabetes.
In a Yahoo OMG poll, with over 1,750 people voting, 52% said they were obsessed with the new Jonas Brothers album. 10% called it their guilty pleasure. 27% are going to buy it. And a mere 13% said they can’t stand them.
The Jonas Brothers also swept the Teen Choice Awards on August 4th. They won six awards: Choice Single/Love Song: “When You Look Me in The Eyes,” Choice Breakout Group, Choice Male Hottie, Choice Red Carpet Fashion Icon Male, and Choice Summer Song “Burnin’ Up.”
The Jonas Brothers consist of three brothers: Kevin, 20, Joe, 19, and Nick, 15. They are currently filming their 3-D movie in New York and touring as a part of their Burnin’ Up tour. They also have agreed to a second Camp Rock! and are planning on filming a new Disney Channel show.
