Nick Jonas has spent over a decade in the business as a performer, but with his latest solo album, Last Year Was Complicated, the singer-songwriter is revealing a vulnerability and diving deeper into R&B in his follow-up to 2014's Nick Jonas. But Jonas' history goes deeper than being in a boy band, the Jonas Brothers, as a teenager.
