Nick Jonas Remix Premiere: Hear Young Bombs' Take on 'Teacher'
Nick Jonas' best-known solo work remains his two recent Top 20 hits, "Chains" and "Jealous," but his 2014 self-titled album is brimming with jams, including the cheeky funk track "Teacher." Production duo Young Bombs has given "Teacher" a facelift with a sweeping new remix, premiering exclusively on Billboard.com:
Young Bombs, the Vancouver-based DJ group composed of Martin Kottmeier and Tristan Norton, are best known for their remixes of Charli XCX, Route 94 and Zella Day tunes. For "Teacher," the duo transformed Jonas' slick swagger into an epic dance exaltation, with breathless pants and programmed strings contributing to the remix's urgency.
"We're so thankful to have had the opportunity to remix an artist as talented as Nick Jonas is," Young Bombs says in a joint statement. "With that being said, this remix is unlike any song of his you've ever heard. Let's just say Nick Jonas' music took the blue pill and is seeing how far the rabbit hole goes."
Jonas is currently featured on Sage The Gemini's single "Good Thing," which moves 100-90 on the current Hot 100 chart. In September and October, he'll be performing "Teacher" and other tracks on the road as part of his Live In Concert tour of North America.
