The Jonas Brothers are burnin’ up the charts with their latest tune.
The trio’s comeback single “Sucker” has debuted at the No. 1 spot of the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated March 16, dethroning Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s “Shallow,” which topped last week’s chart, Billboard reported. The tune is the band’s first single since returning to making music together following their split six years ago, and marks a milestone achievement for the group — their first No. 1 ever.
The siblings took to their band’s Instagram account to share the news and thank their fans for helping them earn the coveted No. 1.
“We can’t thank you guys enough for all the support. We love you guys so much,” they wrote in a post that also included a video compilation of all three brothers individually offering their thanks.
“This is just the beginning…” they concluded their post, which is sure to ring true as E! News reported that the brothers recently revealed during an interview on The Elvis Duran Show that they’ve already got an arsenal of 30 to 40 songs recorded.
Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas are no stranger to Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart. The brothers made their first appearance on the list 12 years ago, and reached a high as the No. 5 spot with their 2008 single “Burnin’ Up.” The last time their name was on the chart was in 2013 with their single “Pom Poms,” which was also their last track before splitting up in 2013.

You guys are absolutely incredible. #1 debut on the @Billboard Hot 100??? Are you kidding me!? We are so grateful and we love you guys so much.

The Jonas Brothers announced their reunion just a few weeks ago on February 28, which they followed up at midnight on March 1 by dropping “Sucker” and its official music video that stars all of their leading ladies. Last week, the band celebrated their reunion with a week-long stint on The Late Late Show With James Corden which included, among other things, an amusing rendition of the late night show’s popular segment “Carpool Karaoke.”
The Jonas Brothers’ chart-topper marks a number of significant achievements for the band beyond just their first No. 1, as they’ve also become the first boy band in 16 years to top the Hot 100 chart. The previous boy band to earn the title was B2K with their single “Bump, Bump, Bump” that they released with P. Diddy in 2003.
Their milestone also takes the cake for the longest trek to a No. 1 since Daft Punk’s 20-year span between their first entry on the list in 1997 and their eventual No. 1 in 2017.

AHHH!!! This is unbelievable. My heart is so full of gratitude. There was a time I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to be able to make music with my brothers again, let alone have a number 1 song on the Hot 100 on Billboard. Thank you to every single person who downloaded, streamed and listened to #sucker on the radio. This still feels like a dream, and the best part is is that it’s just the beginning of this incredible new chapter. Thank you @philymack we truly do have the best manager and team in the business, and @republicrecords you guys are complete rockstars over there. Thank you for putting everything you had behind us. @ryantedder And @frankdukes Thank you for writing the perfect song for us to step back out with. All of our JONATICS! You guys are the best fans in the world, and we wouldn’t be anywhere without your endless love and support. This is gonna be an unforgettable ride. Get ready!
The Billboard charts, including the Hot 100, will be updated on Tuesday, March 12, to reflect the current standings.
