“Chasing Happiness”, a documentary about the newly reunited Jonas Brothers is set to premiere June 4 via Amazon Prime Video worldwide.

The film promises never-before-seen footage of Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas, starting with their early days of growing up in New Jersey in a family struggling to make ends meet, reports Variety.

It follows the trio to their heights of stardom — and the events surrounding their 2013 break-up. The Jonas Brothers broke up their band after cancelling their tour due to a “deep, creative rift” among the members.

“Chasing Happiness” also shows the brothers rebuilding their relationships as siblings and band mates, leading to their first new album since 2009.

In their heyday, the Jonas Brothers earned two No. 1 albums and sold out shows across three continents, selling over 17 million-plus albums with over 1 billion streams worldwide. The trio announced their reunion earlier this year with their hit single “Sucker”, which has topped 445 million global streams to date.

Last month, the group announced their first album since 2009, “Happiness Begins” — which will release on June 7. They have also announced details for their 40-city Happiness Begins Tour. 

Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke credited Nick’s wife and actress Priyanka Chopra behind the idea of making the documentary. 

“I love Priyanka and she introduced me to Nick Jonas. They sent me a video and we bought it right away and that’s how we came about it,” Salke told IANS when the project was announced.

Opening up about the idea behind the project, Salke said: “It is really about our instincts, ‘oh my God, our customer are going to love this’ and we sort of lean in and figure out the best strategy.”

La Do√Īa releases debut EP ‘Algo Nuevo’

La Do√Īa by¬†Thalia Gochez

Latina artist La Do√Īa has officially released her debut¬†Algo Nuevo¬†EP via Human Re-Sources. Produced heavily by Do√Īa herself, the EP¬†includes previously-released singles “Qui√©n Me La Paga” (“Whose Going To Pay For It?” in English), an infectious cumbia-led track that denounces life’s ever-increasing expenses, and¬†the self-coined “femmeton” anthem¬†“Le Lo Lai,” which reverts the machismo paradigm so prevalent in reggaeton and hip-hop.

Speaking on the EP, La Do√Īa says:¬†“Algo nuevo is a gift of something new; it is a statement about the versatility of musical forms and diasporic rhythms; it is a marriage of the traditional with the contemporary; it is an offering and a statement to la raza, the boss girls, las malas, the non-binary and queer homies, ‘I see you, I am you, and I made this for you.'”¬†

The EP is a fruitful and masterful collage of La Do√Īa’s world. The artist¬†composes songs influenced heavily by Bay Area hyphy styles, lowrider culture, Mission muralismo, and musica de la (U.S./Mexico) frontera, while¬†exploring radical brown femininity alongside love and pain.

Algo Nuevo¬†also arrives¬†alongside La Do√Īa’s release show¬†at The Chapel in San Francisco tonight where she’ll be joined by¬†Sazon Libre, Chulita Vinyl Club, and Mariachi Juvenil La Misi√≥n.

After touring North America in support of Cuco, opening for legendary Mexican rock group¬†Caf√© Tacvba, and being named one of YouTube Music’s¬†Foundry¬†artists with past alumni including Rosal√≠a, Dua Lipa, Chloe X Halle, and Gunna,¬†La Do√Īa is entering 2020 in full force.¬†
