Today’s Lessons from Mr. Jonas: “Teacher” and “Avalanche” (featuring @DDLovato) by @NickJonas

NICK JONAS, “Teacher” and “Avalanche” (featuring Demi Lovato)

Okay, call me convinced.  I did indeed enjoy the preview single and video for Nick Jonas’ “Chains”.  But somehow… and I still haven’t quite figured it out… I’m not digging “Jealous”, Nick’s first solo Top 40 foray… maybe I’m finding it too close to Justin/Robin songs of the past year?  Anyway, the youngest Jonas clearly is on the right track with “Teacher”, which truly does feature a dynamic vocal and rich, ear-zinging production set to a slinky beat.  Of course the lyric video featuring some rather nice body parts in reference to Nick’s own beefed-up physique isn’t hard to watch at all 😛 Also previewing online from his self-titled album to be released on November 10 is the ballad “Avalanche” featuring JoBros fave Demi Lovato.  While the match up in the past was always with brother Joe, Nick and Demi do sound just great together.  The song itself comes off like Nick’s own version of “Chandelier” as transformed into a duet.  It’s powerful stuff that bodes well for the rest of the songs on his album.  Like Joe Jonas’ Fastlife album of a few years ago, of which I am a big fan, Nick Jonas wisely chooses to step away from the Jonas Brothers sound and go for the gusto his own way (with the help of course of some powerful players and producers).  You can buy “Teacher” (above) now on iTunes and get “Avalanche” (below) later in the week when the album is released.
