Pro Tip: When dating Nick Jonas, don’t post all those photos on Instagram — he’d like you to save a little bit just for him.

Last night, following the single cover tease last week, the “Chains” singer debuted “Jealous,” the first formal single off of his forthcoming self-titled solo album.

Unlike the more murky R&B sound of “Chains,” Nick is taking a turn into bouncier, funkier ’80’s sound on the Nolan Lambroza-produced “Jealous” (which he himself described as “New-agey Lionel Richie” to Billboard), anguishing over his much-adored beauty atop electro beats and a solid, smooth midtempo stomp. “It’s not your fault that they hover, I mean no disrespect/It’s my right to be hellish, I still get jealous!” he cries out on the immediately catchy chorus. As long as radio’s on board, there’s no reason this shouldn’t be a hit.

Listen to “Jealous” after the jump.
