The single was accompanied by a nostalgia-filled music video.

“Sucker” ended the beloved Jonas Brothers’ hiatus in February, and since then, fans have been waiting for the second song off their album “JB5,” rumored to come out later in the year. On Friday, April 5, “Cool” was released, with the trio singing about their good luck in life and love.

Although not as romance-heavy as “Sucker,” “Cool” had the same positive attitude about the good events the brothers have been experiencing. The song and accompanying music video had many 80s-style pop culture references, from boomboxes to spontaneous dancing. “Cool” lives up to fan expectations, making it to the #2 trending video on YouTube within 13 hours of its release.

Centered around their significant others, the Jonas Brothers bring up the past year and the positive vibes they have garnered in their relationships.

“I’m feelin’ high like a late night summer of last year / Standin’ there with the red dress on ya / A Killer Queen like a young Jane Fonda / Is it me or am I just havin’ a good year?” Nick Jonas sings about his wife, Priyanka Chopra. The lyrics represent their engagement last July and the virtuous feelings he has experienced while being married.

Similarly, Joe Jonas sings about his fiancée, Sophie Turner: “Oh, I feel like Post Malone when I get home / Sittin’ there, winning like it’s Game of Thrones.” Turner is a well-known actress from “Game of Thrones,” and Joe Jonas expresses how he feels like he is winning when he gets to see her.

Unfortunately Kevin, the third brother, does not have an individual part in the song.

The Jonas Brothers also mention how their previous year was difficult, but the new year has been treating them well. “And now that we’ve made it, how complicated was last year?” Joe Jonas sings, making a reference to Nick Jonas’s most recent solo album.

The Jonas Brothers not only spread positivity from their energetic beats and trendy music video but also from their lyrics about the good that has come to them. “I’m feeling so cool / From top to the bottom, just cool / Every little thing that I do,” Nick Jonas sings.

Along with the cheerful music, the video brings fans away from their problems, providing an exciting feeling overall. In matching blue and black suits, the Jonas Brothers kick off their music video with appealing visuals and fun colors. This vibe continues throughout and brings a very summery feel to the song.

With the flowing tune and exciting lyrics, the song is perfect gateway to summer. The fun yet laid back attitude from the music video brings the audience on a joyride of colorful pop.
