Stare at Nick Jonas’ girlfriend? Then you’re giving him the right to be "hellish," he says, because he’s not afraid to admit that, from time to time, he gets a little "Jealous."
The solo star just released his single "Jealous" off his upcoming self-titled album (due out November 11) and the singer is embracing his R&B influences, much like he did with the preceding track, "Chains." But this time he's bringing a funkier upbeat sound that is refreshing and much different than anything we've heard from the youngest Jonas brother.
“It’s not your fault that they hover, I mean no disrespect/ It’s my right to be hellish, I still get jealous," he sings on the song.
On the personal track, which is about his girlfriend, former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo, Nick sings about protecting his significant other, but also getting a hint of jealousy as men eye his very beautiful other half.
On Wednesday (September 8) Nick, along with Culpo, called into Ryan Seacrest's radio show where she explained that she didn't find it too shocking that Nick would pen a song about this subject.
"The first time I ever hung out with Nick there was actually an incident where somebody did make a comment to me. He had not said a single thing the entire night, except this guy said something to me and Nick turns around red in the face and says, 'What did you just say?' " she explained. "So I was actually not that surprised."
“I’m with my girl and [some other guys are] looking at her and I was like, I’ve just been training for three months how to be a real fighter for a TV show and I could hurt you now,” he recently told MTV News. “It was a moment when I was like, I’ve got to write about that because the fact that I got so passionate about it so quickly means that there is a song there.”
