Watch Nick take a pill in Ibiza.
Nick Jonas channels his inner Bruno Mars for slinky Champagne Problems video.
Former Jonas Brother Nick released his third album – Last Year Was Complicated – way back in June but he’s still pumping out brand new visuals for almost every track, as well as documenting the creative process that brought the album together in a Youtube docu series.
The latest music video release is for ‘Champagne Problems’ and the video concept is fairly basic: Nick turns up in the club while surrounded by numerous beautiful women.
The story behind the song, however, contrasts strikingly with the carefree decadence of the video. Jonas explained the emotional depth behind the track to Entertainment Weekly in May:
“It sounds like a party jam but in reality it’s about something pretty sad. We [Nick and ex-girlfriend Olivia] had this bottle of champagne that we were saving for our anniversary. We decided that we were going to celebrate the years we had together and the time that we spent together by sharing this bottle of champagne and closing that chapter of our life. Although it was a really sad moment, it was a nice way to kind of close things up. I’m sure she’s heard ‘Champagne Problems’ at this point. The concept of the song, which maybe doesn’t stand out on first listen, is ‘You’re amazing, you’re all the things I hope to find with somebody, but timing, circumstances, all these things play into it not being right”. Champagne is amazing, it tastes delicious, but gives you a really bad hangover.”
