The split led to the cancellation of their comeback album, though Nick confirmed that some of the songs recorded for the project would become available for fans through an upcoming release; the band released a live album featuring five songs from their unreleased fifth studio album.
The single failed to achieve success after its release.
The band became prominent figures on the Disney Channel during this time, gaining a large following through the network: they appeared in the widely successful musical television film Camp Rock (2008) and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam (2010) as well as two of their own series, Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream (2008–2010) and Jonas (2009–2010).
The band's third studio album, A Little Bit Longer (2008), saw continued commercial success for the group; the album's lead single "Burnin' Up" hit the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
I just try to be humble, make sexy music and push the envelope a little bit." Apart from guest appearances at specific events, it marks the first time Nick has toured without his brothers, Kevin and Joe.
In September 2011 and October 2011, Nick Jonas & The Administration began touring through South America in support of their debut album, Who I Am.
Thereafter, Jonas opted to focus on work in theater, and also had a recurring role on the television series Smash.
The Jonas Brothers briefly reunited in 2013, though officially parted ways due to creative differences.
Jonas' father is a songwriter, musician, and former ordained minister at an Assemblies of God church, while his mother is a former sign language teacher and singer.
Jonas was raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey and homeschooled by his mother. The band performed the collaboration "We Got the Party" with lead actress Miley Cyrus, with the episode gaining over ten million viewers and became basic cable's most watched series telecast ever.
"Jealous" (2014) was later released as the album's second single, going on to become Jonas' first top ten hit as a solo artist on the Billboard Hot 100.
During the early stages of their career, the Jonas Brothers were seen as role models and teen idols by their fans, and drew much media attention when they made the decision to begin wearing purity rings during their time on the Disney Channel.
The project became his highest peaking entry as a solo artist on the Billboard 200, while the lead single was a top twenty hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
