The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in June and became the biggest debut of 2019 with a total of 414,000 units sold.
The Jonas Brothers are also nominated this year for multiple Teen Choice awards including Choice Music Group, Choice Song: Group for “Sucker,” and Choice Summer Song for “Cool.”
Teen Choice 2019 airs on August 11th on Fox. Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5 had previously won the Teen Choice Decade Award.
The Jonas Brothers will kick off their official world tour August 7th in Miami. “Only 3 weeks until the Happiness Begins tour starts!” Nick tweeted on Wednesday. “Who’s pumped?!” The group is taking song requests for their upcoming tour and they’ve asked for recommendations for some of their “deep cuts.”

Lance Bass is jumping on the Face App bandwagon, and fans are going bananas.
Using FaceApp, Lance jumped into the Old Face Challenge that’s currently going viral, and posted a photo of all five *NSYNC members posing together as old men. He captioned it, “When we finally reunite” with a smile emoji.
Fans predictably went nuts, with many posting the “So you’re telling me there’s a chance?” GIF. And another hopeful fan wrote, “Notice he said ‘When’…not ‘If.’ Juuuuust saying.”
Another fan wrote, “WE WANT IT NOW. I mean if I have to be 50 doing the choreo to IWYB I will, but I’d rather do it before the arthritis.”
“I’ll be there with my high blood pressure pills and arthritis medication,” wrote another.
One fan posted a video of The Golden Girls and captioned it, “My friends and I when we finally get to see @NSYNC in concert.”
But the one that Lance liked best was the response from the fan who captioned the pic, “Dirty Pops.”
*NSYNC fans have been waiting decades for a reunion with all the OG members including Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone and Bass.
