Nick Jonas Discusses Writing Charice’s Hit ‘One Day,’ Hopes to Guest Star on ‘Glee’
Who would have thought that one of the Jonas Brothers would end up as an influential figure in the professional side of the music industry — and the youngest one, no less? Nick Jonas recently opened up about how he penned rising teen pop star Charice‘s new single, ‘One Day,’ and admitted that he’d like to guest-star on ‘Glee.’
“I co-wrote the song while I was in Nashville, and it’s a cool song,” Jonas tells MTV News of the latest Charice hit, which he co-wrote. “Basically, the agency came and said, ‘Hey we need a song with this lyric ['one day'] and if you could, find a way to craft it.’ It was a really organic vibe that came from the songwriting session where we said, ‘If we can infuse this word here, that’d be cool.’”
The trained professional also gave his two-cents on the Filipina newcomer, with special credit to her larger-than-life voice. “The main thing about Charice that people really connect to … and kind of really love about her, is the fact that she is a normal girl and really shines because of her vocal talent,” he says. “I was so blessed to produce her vocal. It’s amazing to see this big voice come out of her, especially on the song we did.”
But there’s one thing Charice has that Nick doesn’t, and that’s a role on ‘Glee.’ “Definitely a fan of the show. I think anything that keeps music a part of popular culture is a great thing,” he says of the FOX musical phenomenon.
“As a music lover, I’m a big fan of it, especially because all of the songs are classics and I know a lot of the people that produce the music for that show and I think they do a great job,” Jonas says, adding slyly, “So if there was a role for me that they thought would be cool, I’d love to do it.”
