In this week’s round of Billboard’s Fan Army Face-Off, Beyonce's Beyhive is buzzing circles around Nick Jonas’ army of fans. After Beyoncé’s hive beat out Miley Cyrus’ #Smilers and Jonas’ crew wiped out Britney Spears’ #BritneyArmy, the two fan armies are coming face to face in the third round.
Only true fans of Nick Jonas know that the artist’s career started long before the Jonas Brothers. The youngest of the Jonas trio was the first to be discovered. His entertainment debut began on Broadway in shows like A Christmas Carol, Beauty and the Beast and Les Misérables. At age 12, Jonas was signed and recorded his first solo Christian pop album, Nicholas Jonas. Jonas, along with his two brothers Kevin and Joe, joined talents as the Jonas Brothers and quickly gained millions of fans with their second studio album, Jonas Brothers, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200. In 2010, fans supported Jonas branching out from his brothers in Nick Jonas & The Administration. Since Jonas has excited his army with various acting gigs and reinvented himself as a solo pop artist with Nick Jonas (2014), which brought hits “Jealous” and “Chains,” and his latest project, Last Year Was Complicated (2016).
