Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato Hit Us With An ‘Avalanche’ Of Emotions On Their Intense New Duet

Ready your tissues and your feels!

Nick Jonas has been grabbing our attention in many ways over the past few months.

He's been making bold statements in his magazine spreads but more importantly with his music.

The MTV Artist to Watch has proven himself as a formidable solo artist, but he's also doing it with a little help from his friends, including Demi Lovato.

Nick streamed his self-titled solo effort with Rolling Stone, and we finally got the chance to listen to his duet, "Avalanche," with bestie, Demi.


It's emotional, raw and makes you want to drown in a pool of tears in a very "Skyscraper" way. Their powerful voices blend perfectly over the ballad as they chronicle the end of relationship.

"I got pride you can't hold your breath/ We'll crash down like an avalanche/ Look out now, don't take one more step/We'll crash down like an avalanche," they sing.

Nick recently spoke with us about how the "killer duet" between he and Demi came together.

“She and I recorded a song that, um, I think is beautiful. It’s not necessarily a love song. It’s so easy to do a duet that’s a love song because our relationship isn’t really that. But there is love there for a friend, you know, and it’s beautiful to just talk about,” he revealed. “Any kind of relationship can hit a point where if it’s not stable, it’s not secure then it’s like an avalanche crashing down and that’s what that song is about. Her voice is amazing on it and, um, it feels good. I’m excited for people to hear it.”

And if you like what you hear, there's more where that came from since the "Neon Lights" singer teased that they also collaborated on another song, "Afterglow." We are crossing our fingers that it makes the cut on Demi's next album coming up in 2015.

‘Afterglow’ is a song that’s basically about not knowing what’s going to happen but knowing that there’s feelings," she told MTV News. "And just going for it anyways because you can foresee the glowing aftereffect of finally being together.”
