The Jonas Brothers – Split was the best thing

Wendy Stokesby:


They have been one of the most popular bands in the world, which was evident from the albums that they were selling. They have sold millions of those and earned a lot. And, on the top of their fame, they decided to separate and try their own solo careers. Even though this seemed like a bad thing, it may actually be the best thing they could have ever done.

The success

They started their career as a boy band and they were immediately noticed due to their uniqueness and their songs. The first deal that they signed was in 2005 when they prepared their first album called It’s About Time. However, the album sales did not go well and the reception of their music at that time was not good. So, the deal was terminated.

This was the breaking point for them since they have prepared an album by themselves. They have also been signed by Hollywood Records and the album was a great hit since it was placed at No. 5on the Billboard 200. Another breakthrough for them happened when they appeared in Hannah Montana along with Miley Cyrus. The recognition came in 2009 when the nomination for Grammy for Best New Artist arrived. From hat point onward, they were very busy and they have launched even four studio albums and three of those were in the top 10 of the Billboard list. Apart from this, they had a movie career through the appearance in a movie called Camp Rock.

He has also added that Nick was the one who stepped out and told them that he also wanted to do something else in his life and that he would like to try a career in movies and to have a solo career.
