Nick Jonas Hits The Showers With PLL Star Shay Mitchell And Reveals Jay Z’s Advice
In 2016, Nick Jonas is continuing to move through his Justin Timberlake Sexyback era. The former teen heartthrob and Disney-approved popstar is now a bona fide sex symbol, dropping his clothes and his critically acclaimed third studio album, Last Year Was Complicated.
Jonas has already released two videos from the new disc, the emotionally and physically vulnerable “Close” with Tove Lo, as well as Jonas’ ode to the Heartbreak Hotel with “Chainsaw.” Now Nick is heating things up with his latest single “Under You,” releasing a video with Canadian actor and Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell.
The couple plays ex-lovers who decide to reunite after trashing their respective homes. Jonas wears a black tux, while a distraught but still gorgeous Mitchell is in a black gown and dripping with emerald diamonds. Jonas makes his way to Mitchell’s home, where the two find themselves fully clothed and then almost fully unclothed in the shower. Both outfits are definitely going to need to be dry cleaned.
The steamy video was directed by Marc Klasfled, who has worked with Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears, and directed fun.’s Grammy-winning “We Are Young.”
Jonas told E! News that Mitchell is “amazing,” saying, “She’s obviously gorgeous and an amazing person. I think she matches her beauty in her personality. She’s really sweet. She was willing to dig really deep in the video. It’s an emotional song and required pretty intense acting situations as well. I thought she killed it.”
Continuing to promote his new album, Jonas appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week and talked about naming his new disc, Last Year Was Complicated. The 2016 iHeartRadio MMVA performer took advice from Jay Z, because when Jay Z gives you music advice, it’s probably a good idea to listen.
