As the Jonas Brothers' triumphant return continues, so does their excitement. Just after news broke that the sibling trio'sHappiness Begins album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 on Monday (June 17), Nick, Kevin and Joe took to social media to celebrate their latest achievement and thank fans for the support.
"I don’t even know what to say. This is so incredible," Nick wrote in an Instagram post. "We set out to make a record that embodied the happiness we feel after having been through so much together. The fact that this music has connected with people in this way means the world us. Thank you for believing in us."
Nick also tweeted that he was "blown away" by the first-week numbers -- 414,000 equivalent album units -- which Kevin seconded. "I can’t believe this! Thank you so much everyone truly insane! It’s just the beginning!!!," Kevin wrote on Twitter and Instagram. Joe later chimed in on Instagram, writing, "Speechless. Thank you guys so much!!"
Happiness Begins, which the Jonas Brothers released on June 7, marked the biggest week of 2019 for an album, besting the first-week numbers of Ariana Grande's Thank U, Next by more than 50,000. It's also the largest week for a group since One Direction's Made in the A.M. in 2015 and the biggest week for a pop album since Taylor Swift's reputation in 2017.
