Road to Success:

Kevin Jonas’ singing career began when Daylight/Columbia Records signed the three Jonas’ brothers after listening to their track ‘Please Be Mine’. Their first rock album made it to the floor in August 2006, called ‘It’s about time’. But unfortunately the album sold only a little over 50,000 copies. Because Sony was not interested in promoting their band, so the brothers decided to switch labels. In February 2007, they entered into a contract with Hollywood Records after being dropped by Columbia Records. Jonas Brothers then came up with their self-titled album released on August 7, 2007 which made it to the 5th position on the Billboard Hot 200 chart in its first week itself and went double platinum. The band then climbed the ladder of success and delivered hits one after the other.

Their next album, ‘A Little Bit Longer’, was released on August 12, 2008. It peaked at number one on the Billboard 200 and sold more than 247,000 copies in the United States. The group produced their third album with Hollywood Records, ‘Lines, Vines and Trying Times’ in the year 2009 which was a huge hit too. The album surfaced at number one on Billboard 200 making the Jonas Brothers rise to the top once again.
