Naughty Boy hopes to reunite Jonas Brothers

Super producer Naughty Boy hopes to reunite the Jonas Brothers to record new material.

The British musician, 32, has roped in Joe Jonas to appear on his new single One Chance to Dance.

However he has his eyes on a bigger collaboration - bringing the sibling boyband back together for the first time since their 2013 split.

"I would love to bring them back together as a band one day - do not rule that out," Naughty, real name Shahid Khan, told Britain's Daily Star newspaper. "I know these brothers are close and all support each other."

The producer also revealed that the brothers share a love of mixed martial arts (MMA) fighting - and hopes their love of the sport will help ease the path to a reunion.

"I found that they are really into MMA," he said. "I was surprised that they are into that sport and quite active in it, maybe that's the way it (a reunion) will happen."

Joe has been fronting a new band, DNCE, but Naughty said he's been impressed with his work on their new track.

"It's Joe's first single as a solo artist," he explained. "Although he's been a Jonas Brother and has a big fanbase with DNCE, he's so cool and has a great voice, and it makes sense for him to be making music with someone new."

The Cake by the Ocean singer, 28, has a busy personal as well as work life at the moment as he recently got engaged to Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, 21.

The happy couple were joined by Joe's brothers for an engagement party on Saturday (04Nov17), held at Manhattan's MAMO restaurant.
