If there's one thing you must know about me, I'm a Joe Jonas fan first and a person second. I have loved the Jonas Brothers since 2007, have been to see them countless times, and even purchased Fastlife upon its release.

What's Fastlife, you might be asking yourself. For those who aren't aware, Joe Jonas released his first solo album called Fastlife in 2011 and sadly, the album just didn't perform. While the album had some amazing singles including "See No More" and "Just in Love," the album failed to bring in as many listeners as his efforts with brothers.

For the most part, Fastlife feels like a fever dream that few Jonas Brothers talk about and Joe didn't talk much about it. However, he did share a post for the album's 10th anniversary and explained that it's one of his favorite projects. Not to date myself here, but I remember going to the store and buying this album which now goes along with me everywhere in my car.

Joe would go on to form DNCE and the group would have much wider success. More recently, Jonas has been teasing new music but has yet to share if it's just a single or an entire album. Either way, all I can say is that it's about time. iykyk.

Will Joe Jonas finally see the solo success he deserves?

If you've been following Joe Jonas on social media, you've been seeing his posts in which he shares a clip of him singing and sharing a repeated line "Even baddies get saddies." That is truly iconic and he even put on his merch. Frankly, I feel like I never imagined this would be on some merch but I'm here for it.

With all that being said, I feel like this new song has the potential to be a new chapter for Jonas. When he first released Fastlife, it felt more like Nick's sound than his. His time with DNCE has truly helped Joe to figure out his sound, improve his songwriting, and make him a more well-rounded artist. He also reunited with his brothers and made all of us collectively fall in love with the Jonas Brothers again.

Joe Jonas just feels more self-aware and free in the best way. When he released Fastlife, it felt like he was trying to be someone completely different. This new song feels like it's going to be incredibly authentic and a pretty vulnerable one despite its fun beat. As someone who has been following Jonas' career for over a decade now, solo success is something I've always hoped for him and it feels so close now.

Even with everything that went on in his personal life, it's clear Jonas has a lot of topics he can write about and things we're all curious about. While he likely won't share any intimate details, I'm excited to see if Joe ends up releasing just a single or a full album. I don't know about you, but I'm hoping for a full album.

You can pre-save Joe Jonas' new single before it releases.
