Jonas Brothers Score First Pop Songs Chart No. 1 With ‘Sucker’

Jonas Brothers notch their first No. 1 on Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart.

Jonas Brothers notch their first No. 1 on Billboard‘s Pop Songs radio airplay chart, as “Sucker” lifts 2-1 (on the survey dated April 27).

The song, released on Republic Records, likewise previously became the sibling trio’s first No. 1 on the all-genre airplay-, streaming- and sales-based Billboard Hot 100, when it launched at the summit in March.

Here’s a look at the history of Jonas Brothers (Joe, Kevin and Nick Jonas) on Pop Songs, which ranks titles by weekly plays on a panel of 167 mainstream top 40 stations, according to Nielsen Music:

Peak Position, Title, Peak Date
No. 24, “S.O.S.,” Dec. 1, 2007
No. 16, “When You Look Me in the Eyes,” April 5, 2008
No. 12, “Burnin’ Up,” Aug. 23, 2008
No. 29, “Lovebug,” Nov. 15, 2008
No. 27, “Paranoid,” July 18, 2009
No. 34, “First Time,” Aug. 31, 2013
No. 1, “Sucker,” April 27, 2019
No. 21 (to date), “Cool,” April 27, 2019

Jonas Brothers first appeared on Pop Songs on Oct. 20, 2007, with “S.O.S.” While their 11-year, six-month and one-week wait for a first No. 1 is lengthy, it’s not a chart record: Coldplay took just under 16 years and two months between its March 2001 arrival, with “Yellow,” and first No. 1, “Something Just Like This,” with The Chainsmokers, in May 2017.


Apart from Jonas Brothers, Nick and Joe Jonas have each reached No. 2 highs on Pop Songs. Nick’s solo single “Jealous” hit No. 2 in 2015, likewise, as a member of DNCE, Joe hit the runner-up spot in 2016 with the act’s “Cake by the Ocean.”

Meanwhile, “Sucker” follow-up “Cool” climbs 26-21 on Pop Songs.

All charts will update tomorrow (April 23) on Billboard.com.
