The Jonas Brothers co-wrote ‘Sucker’ with another famous musician

While The Jonas Brothers helped write their hit single, they had some help from award-winning writers and producers. According to songfacts.com, the brothers wrote “Sucker” with OneRepublic frontman, Ryan Tedder. Frank Dukes and Louis Bell produced the music for this Jonas Brothers’ song.

Aside from working with OneRepublic, Ryan Tedder also wrote songs like Beyonce’s “Halo,” Adele’s “Rumour Has It,” and Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love.” He won multiple “Album of the Year” Grammy Awards, for his work on Taylor Swift’s 1989 and Adele’s 21 and 25.

Frank Dukes and Louis Bell worked on projects for other accomplished artists, like Post Malone and Camila Cabello. Frank Dukes also worked with The Weeknd. There’s no word on whether Frank Dukes and Louis Bell worked on The Jonas Brothers’ new album, Happiness Begins, which premieres in summer 2019.

The “Sucker” music video, released on February 28, 2019, has over 136 million views on YouTube. The over-the-top video features the Jonas Brothers and their now-wives, Priyanka Chopra, Danielle Jonas, and Sophie Turner, dressed in avant-garde costumes, enjoying a colorful tea party together.

Following “Sucker,” the band released a second single, entitled “Cool.” This chill song is already hot on the charts, earning almost 40 million plays on Spotify. Their 80s inspired music video has over 34 million views on YouTube.

It even gives a nod to Joe Jonas’ wife, Sophie Turner, with lyrics that say, “Oh, I feel like Post Malone when I get home / Sittin’ there, winning like it’s Game of Thrones / And now that we’ve made it, how complicated was last year?”
