Jonas Brothers Cover Bruno Mars, Coldplay + Frank Ocean
The Jonas Brothers are playing select shows together once again and treating their fans to covers of hit songs by other artists. In recent concerts in Los Angeles, the trio put their own spin on songs by Bruno Mars, Coldplay and Frank Ocean.
On Nov. 28 at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, the JoBros sang a beautiful version of Coldplay’s ‘Yellow,’ with Nick capably recreating Chris Martin’s falsetto as he and Kevin strummed acoustic guitars. That song morphed directly into the current Bruno Mars smash ‘Locked Out of Heaven,’ which they reinvented as a stripped-down ballad. Girls in the crowd screamed when Joe sang the lyric, “Your sex takes me to paradise,” a line the Jonas Brothers of the Disney years would never have uttered.
The guys got in touch with their soulful side when they covered Ocean’s ‘Thinkin Bout You.’ Nick and Joe both brought their best falsetto voices for that song, the biggest hit from Ocean’s acclaimed ‘Channel Orange’ album.
Just yesterday, we brought you a clip of the brothers covering Rihanna‘s ‘Diamonds’ in concert. The guys clearly love being back on stage and getting those creative juices flowing again. Now how about finishing up that new album, fellas?
