Nick Jonas is taking us through his infamous breakup with former girlfriend Olivia Culpo in his new single “Chainsaw.”
The song, produced by Sir Nolan, will be included on the 23-year-old’s upcoming album Last Year Was Complicated, and is, what Jonas considers, the “most personal song” he’s ever written.
“Hopefully my vulnerability speaks to you,” Jonas tweeted Thursday night before the single’s release. “I loved. It ended. I had regret. I wrote a song.”
Jonas also released a music video for the song, in which he is seenÂ walkingÂ around an empty home, reminiscing about his former girlfriend (Sara Sampaio) and trying to come to terms with the breakup…which may just include a chainsaw, a sofa and some fire.
â€œCollaborating with [director] Luke Monaghan was really special as this is an incredibly personal song and the performance in the video had to represent that,â€ Jonas told Vogue.com. â€œAlso, getting to work with my close friend Sara Sampaio was amazing. Not only is she gorgeous, but her acting skills were definitely on display in her performance.â€
According to Jonas’ recent interview with Out Magazine, fans can expect more personalÂ songs like this one, asÂ most of the album will be drawnÂ from the end of his relationship with Culpo.
“It became very clear what it was going to be about, after the breakup,” he said. “I just dove in headfirst and wrote about all of it. I think it was the most meaningful relationship I’ve ever been in.”
“Chainsaw” is available for purchase here and don’t forget toÂ pre-order Jonas’ upcoming album Last Year Was Complicated.
