Jonas Brothers

Jonas Brothers may have taken a break for a few years, but the sibling trio of Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas came roaring back in 2019 with their first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, “Sucker.” The track debuted atop the list, marking the first time a group opened at No. 1 in more than 20 years. Before the “Sucker” madness, Jonas Brothers notched five top 10-charting albums on the Billboard 200 chart (two of which hit No. 1) and earned over 6 million in equivalent album units for their overall album catalog.
