In Billboard’s new video series “My Billboard Moment,” bands and artists reflect upon key Billboard-related moments in their careers that have left lasting impressions on them. In this week’s episode, the Jonas Brothers recall how it felt when their recent comeback single “Sucker” topped the Hot 100 chart.
Speaking with Billboard, Nick Jonas says that when he and his brothers released “Sucker,” they had discussed the possibility of the song topping the chart, but because that had never before happened for them, he didn’t want to get his hopes up.
However, at a certain point during the week, he started to feel like a No. 1 might be a possibility. On the Friday of that week, he told his team that he thought it was going to happen, but they still seemed doubtful.
“Little did I know they had rerouted the package with the confirmation which was a plaque they had made up which said congratulations, No. 1,” Jonas says. “It was gonna show up on Friday, and their whole thing of trying to keep us on our toes would have been ruined.”
“So instead, on Monday morning, I woke up and I had a package at the front door,” he continues. “Popped it open, looked at that thing. Had a real moment of joy, pride, and wanted to hug a bunch of people, which is out of character for me, but a No. 1 [on] Billboard will do that. It’ll make you want to hug somebody.”
