Nick Jonas is shedding his boy band reputation with his hot new single ‘Chains.’ The song marks his first release as a solo artist, and for those expecting even a shred of similarity between his music and the Jonas Brothers’, prepare to be shocked.

‘Chains’ is an undeniably sexy track. The slow, deep drum loop gives the song a thrumming pulse. Paired with racy lyrics such as, “Alone in the night ‘til she knocks on my door / Oh no, wasted again, but I can’t say no” and it becomes clear that this isn’t the same curly-haired Nick from the Disney Channel.

Of course, the 21-year-old has matured over the last few years, and to expect a sound along the lines of the Jo Bros’ hits ‘S.O.S.’ or ‘Lovebug’ would be naïve. The brothers parted professional ways back in October, and it seems Nick has left that style to rest along with the band.

Not that we're complaining -- 'Chains' is surprising coming from Nick, but in a very good way. Listen to it above!
