The powerhouse pop trio Jonas Brothers’ comeback album Happiness Begins debuts at No.1 on the Billboard 200 chart and marks the biggest debut of 2019.
Following its release on 7 June, Happiness Begins is the pop sensations’ third No.1 album and reasserts their chart dominance a decade after their last release in 2009.
The former teen heartthrobs continue their victory lap, after the album’s debut single ‘Sucker’ debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was officially hailed as the song of the summer. The album is also experiencing global success, landing at No.1 in Canada.
Along with notching a No. 1 album, the band also delivered the biggest debut of 2019 with a total consumption of 414K units, including 68 million streams, reports Nielsen. That’s greater than the rest of the Billboard 200’s Top 10 combined.
It’s been a revelatory moment for the brothers and former Disney stars, as their reunion as been one of the biggest pop cultural landmarks of this year. Just in the past few months alone, the group has made several high-profile appearances including on The Late Late Show With James Corden, performing at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, Saturday Night Live, the season finale of The Voice and premiered their single ‘Only Human’ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The group also released their highly anticipated documentary Chasing Happiness, that chronicles the brothers’ reunion and making of the album on Amazon Prime.
Following the album’s release, it’s been garnering glowing praise with Variety writing that their reunion “proves we weren’t just imagining how good their pop chops were in the 2000s”.
After selling out multiple shows, the Happiness Begins Tour will kick off 7 August in Miami, Florida with special guests Bebe Rexha and Jordan McGraw. The band will then release their upcoming memoir Blood, which is available for pre-order and set for release this November.
