Fri 15 Jul 2011

Joe Jonas says that he wasn't worried about working with Chris Brown, despite the R&B star's controversial reputation.

Speaking to Monkey from Orange, the Jonas Brothers star admits that they "stuck to the music" while working together and that he admires the Yeah 3x singer's musical talents. He said: "Luckily me and Chris just stuck to the music and he's a talented musician. He's incredible when it goes to making music... (so we just) focussed on that."

He added: "I'm really fortunate to be able to work with him."

Brown helped Jonas write his debut solo single See No More, a track which Joe says reflects what was going on in his personal life at the time. He explained: "I was going through a break-up and I wanted to be able to find the right things to say in the song. It's that feeling of seeing everything that reminds you of that person. It could be an article of clothing, something she left at your house or... the way somebody smells... it's hard to escape that memory. So you just don't wanna see anything anymore."
