When Nick Jonas gets jealous, he doesn’t beat a ***** up. He channels the fury into his music.

While announcing his upcoming 11-show-date tour, Nick opened up about his next single, “Jealous,” out September 8.

“I was out with my girlfriend the night before I wrote this song … and I got heated,” he told On Air With Ryan Seacrest of his date with girlfriend Miss USA 2012 Olivia Culpo. “I was doing all this fighting training for this show I just finished up [DirecTV’s Kingdom], so I was ready to go. [But] I contained myself … and I came in the next day to the studio and wrote this song. I think it is true … a lot of people can relate with this, a lot of men, they don’t talk about it, it makes them uncomfortable. But I think vulnerability is good and it’s what makes us human.”

In the song, Nick sings:

“It’s my right to be hellish/ I still get jealous.”

“You’re too ****, beautiful and everybody wants a taste that’s why/ I still get jealous.”
