“Burnin’ Up,” the lead single off the group’s 2008 album “A Little Bit Longer,” was the group’s biggest hit, debuting at number five on the Billboard Hot 100. The single was the group’s first to feature rapping, courtesy of the brothers’ bodyguard, Robert “Big Rob” Feggans. The group also named their summer tour after the single.
“Tonight” was the third single from “A Little Bit Longer,” debuting at number eight on the Billboard Top 100. The single was the group’s second to chart in the Billboard Top 10, making them the first artists to have two Top 10 hits in one calendar year since Madonna in 1998. The Jonas Brothers performed the song live at the 2008 American Music Awards, where they also won the award for Best New Artist.
In 2007, “Year 3000” peaked at number 31 on the Billboard Hot 100, though the song had actually been originally released on an earlier Jonas Brothers album but failed to chart. The song was a cover of British boy band Busted, who took the single all the way to number two on the U.K. pop charts in 2003. The Jonas Brothers’ version featured cleaned up, less suggestive lyrics, becoming the group’s first Top 40 hit.Learn more about Art & Literature
