If anyone was finding it hard to take Nick Jonas seriously as a solo artist, his new single should put all doubts to rest.

After the breakup of the Jonas Brothers in October, Nick, 21, is starting fresh with the release of his solo debut, Chains.

Nick lays his emotions bare on the Jason Evigan-produced track, singing lyrics like, "Gave you my heart, but you took my soul" and "You got me in chains for your love" over a heavily R&B-inspired beat.
