"Sucker" is a song by American pop rock group Jonas Brothers. The song, released on March 1, 2019, through Republic Records, is the group's first single together in six years.[2][3] The group co-wrote the song with its producers Ryan Tedder and Frank Dukes, with additional writing with Louis Bell. The Jonas Brothers appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden each night from March 4 to March 7 to promote the track.[3] It has reached number one in Australia, Canada, Latvia, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Slovakia and the United States.[4]

Background[edit]

The group blacked out their social media prior to announcing the release on February 28.[5] Us Weekly had also revealed the title of the song before the announcement.[5] Nick Jonas stated that "We've kept this a secret now for almost seven, eight months."[6]

Chart performance[edit]

In the United States, "Sucker" debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and the US Hot Digital Songs chart, with 88,000 copies sold in its first week. It was the thirty-fourth song to debut atop the Billboard Hot 100. "Sucker" became the Jonas Brothers' first number-one song and the first number one by a boy band on the chart since 2003's "Bump, Bump, Bump" by B2K featuring P. Diddy. It became the band's first entry on the chart since 2013's "Pom Poms" and their first top 10 since 2008's "Tonight". The Jonas Brothers also became the second group in a lead role in history to have a song debut at number one after Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" and the first group in this century to achieve this.[7] In its April 20, 2019 issue, "Sucker" became the Jonas' first number one on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, surging to the top spot within four weeks.[8][9]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Anthony Mandler[10] and premiered showcasing the brothers with each of their significant others: Kevin's wife, Danielle Jonas; Nick's wife, Priyanka Chopra Jonas; and Joe's fiancée, Sophie Turner.[11] It was filmed in Hertfordshire at Hatfield House the home of the Marquess of Salisbury, where Queen Elizabeth I grew up and featured corgis, which are the favorite breed of Queen Elizabeth II.[12]

Their outfits were designed by Prabal Gurung, from his debut menswear line.[13] Priyanka had 10 hairstyles for the music video created by Ken O'Rourke, with only seven making the final cut.[14]

Live performances[edit]

On March 7, 2019, the Jonas Brothers performed the song for the first time on The Late Late Show with James Corden.[15]
