Nick Jonas Enlists Jhene Aiko for ‘Chains’ Remix
Many hip-hop and R&B fans may view Nick Jonas as just another pop star looking to gain a little edge by dabbling in urban music, but we'll be the first to say that the kid has soul and looks to be on the same trajectory as Justin Timberlake. The chiseled heartthrob showcases his talents on his latest single, "Chains (Remix)" featuring Jhene Aiko.
Produced by Jason Evigan, the beat is tailor-made for Top 40 radio, but is edgy enough to get play in rhythmic rotations with its booming drums and Jonas' subtle "cool" factor oozing onto the track. "With her wine-stained lips, yeah, she's nothing but trouble / Cold to the touch, but she's warm as a devil," Jonas sings, describing the prototypical lady killer that has him under her spell.
The hook is also a sure-shot winner, with lyrics like, "You got me in chains, you got me in chains for your love / But, I wouldn't change, no I wouldn't change this love" being simple enough, yet still holding some meaning. This is more than the average pop-tart fare.
Aiko adds to the track in a great way, lending her airy, bold vocals to the effort. “You play the submissive role / Then maybe we switch the role / I’ll be your slave / You can have me anyway that you want," she sings.
