It’s like Justin Bieber, Usher, and the Backstreet Boys all mixed together. That’s what Nick Jonas’s new self-titled album, Nick Jonas sounds like. Believe it or not, that can be a semi-good thing. It’ll remind you a lot of the late 90s and early 2000s. But that pertains to the majority of the album, which can start to get old very fast.

The first song that most of us have heard from this album is “Jealous,” which I had mixed feelings about. Half of me was happy an old Disney star from my days was making a comeback, and I can’t deny that the song is really catchy. The other half of me was upset at the lyrics because it just sounds like an overly controlling guy being suffocatingly possessive over his girl (which is wrong, ladies). Nonetheless I was looking forward to hearing the full album from Nick Jonas.

The album has guest artists such as Demi Lovato, Mike Posner, and Angel Haze. If none of these names excites you, you’ve got the right idea. It’s honestly painfully obvious that Nick Jonas was targeting teenage girls when he made the album. Don’t get me wrong: there are people in this world that I know would like this album; but I am not one of them. So don’t take my review to heart, and do listen to the album if you have some interest in it. As for me, the only time I’ll be hearing from Nick Jonas is on Disney’s Rewind.
