Nick Jonas Joined By Tove Lo On ‘Saturday Night Live’: Watch
Both songs are more ambitious than the funk-lite pop of his 2015 self-titled. And with their aggrieved lyrics, they sound inspired by a recent breakup — like he is baring his soul. Yet Nick still sings with gritted teeth and is too careful when he swivels his hips. Every move seems rehearsed, even though his new material requires that he get loose.
That said, Nick is going to be just fine because, hey, at least he rarely messes up. But it was also a good thing that Tove Lo showed up for “Close.” Her raw energy was exactly what Nick needs to study next.
Watch Tove Lo join Nick Jonas for “Close” up top, then Nick sing “Champagne Problems” below.
