Last week, Nick Jonas sent a collective gasp through the blogosphere after dropping his surprise solo single “Chains,” a murky slice of dark midtempo R&B. And really, what would the accompanying music video be if Nick himself were not at least briefly chained up? The streets would be overrun with torch and pitchfork-wielding protestors — that’s for sure.
Luckily, he’s delivered on that promise: The appropriately dark ‘n sexy visual sees the Jonas Brother-turned solo star being dragged slowly across a church floor, falling from the sky, getting tied up in a chair and battling his way through a rowdy police squad and some protestors — all to represent this one girl toying with our poor Nick’s heart. There are certain video moments that come to mind while watching, including Rihanna‘s “Russian Roulette” and Beyoncé‘s “Superpower.” And by the end, it’s clear that Nick could be well on his way to becoming one of the top male pop players this year.
Check out the moody visual up top, then let us know what you think about Nick’s solo outing in the comments below.
