Joe Jonas is Growing Up

by at . Comments

Joe Jonas is not recording music with his brothers these days. (Listen to his first solo track, "See No More," HERE.)

But he makes one thing clear in the latest issue of Paper Magazine: the singer is still very close with siblings Nick and Kevin.

"My brothers and I, we're like each other's best friends," he says. "And I think it's that foundation that makes me feel like I can really do this on my own for a second."

Jonas is also hoping to follow in the crazy talented footsteps of another teen idol who has risen to superstardom outside his original boy group: Justin Timberlake.

"He's absolutely an inspiration," Jonas tells the magazine. "I look up to Justin so much. He pretty much created his own lane."

On his solo album, Joe worked with Nate "Danja" Hills, a frequent Britney Spears collaborator. Says the producer:

"There's such a gap between what I do and what the Jonas Brothers are. But that's the excitement - it left us an opportunity to create something new... [his fans have all grown up with Joe, so they'll be able to understand where he's coming from. And, really, he's a star no matter what he does. If I give him something people can move to on top of his natural charisma, that's like dynamite and gasoline."

Joe is really talented. This song is so catchy and tge other three new songs he recentlay performed and are on youtbue are amazing. If you can find a vid with good sound quality, give a listen. I think Love Slayer might be my favorite.

This solo project hasn't been that much successful yet. The single was on itunes top 100 for 5 days and then disappeared. I guess devoted fans like you guys should do something to fix it ;)

You know I agree hateful comments don't help you or him! Him and his brothers are growing up. I've been a fan of them since they came out but if your a true fan your there when they go solo. I'm the same age as Joe and I can easily relate to the music he is putting out and will still put out again when him and his brother's produce another CD. Because both him and nick have said that they are on a break and will be back together after their individual goals right now are met. I just wish the younger fans of theirs would see they mean has much to the boys as the fans that grew up with them have. Support them no matter what they decide to do that's what a true Jonas fan would do.
