Nick Jonas On How Fans Have Helped Him Transition From Band Member To Solo Artist

Nick Jonas' solo career is off to a great start, with new singles "Chains" and "Jealous" released, but his past career as one-third of the Jonas Brothers band wasn't easy to put behind.

"I was a little nervous at first," he told HuffPost Live's Caitlyn Becker on Tuesday. "It takes a second just to get used to looking to your left and right and being there kinda by yourself."

While the decision for the Jonas Brothers to dissolve felt like "the right thing," it took the 22-year-old "a second to kind of come out of that," he said.

"Of course it did [hurt]," he said, adding, "Any closing of any chapter is going to come with its complications and with moments of sadness."

He called out his fans for helping make the pivot to solo artist easier.

"I think what's been interesting -- not only for me, but for the fans -- is just the real season of transition," he said. "It takes a minute anytime you come from one stage in your career and a whole other world to stepping into a new thing... but the reception to 'Chains' and now the first single 'Jealous' has been so great and the fans have been so supportive."

Luckily, Nick still sees his brothers "quite a bit," also making the transition feel more natural.

"We still have so much love for each other," he said. "It really isn't like too much has changed other than the fact that I'm just working on music on my own and touring on my own, and they're doing their own thing as well."
