Earlier this week, Nick Jonas put out a music video for his new single—as a solo artist.
The song, “Chains”, not only shows off a darker side of the 21-year-old, but also exposes a universal truth about all boy bands—there always has been, and there always will be, a breakout star.
Unfortunately, we can’t live in a world with multiple Justin Timberlakes. So what does the future look like for Kevin and Joe? We’ll let the non-breakout stars speak for themselves… Check out what the rest of these boybanders are up to!
P.S. Non-Harry Styles members of One Direction, you might want to take notes. We’ll be rooting for you on Dancing With the Stars season 132.
Breakout Star: Donnie (because he married Jenny McCarthy)
Joey: NKOTB's youngest member most recently starred in the canceled CBS sitcom The McCarthys and is married with three kids.
Jordan: Last year, the 45-year-old teamed up with fellow boybander Nick Carter for the album Nick & Knight. He's been married for 11 years and has two kids.
Jonathan: The oldest NKOTB member most recently competed on The Amazing Race with his life partner, Harley.
Danny: The 46-year-old is a father-of-four and still serves as one of the band's main choreographers.
