The three brothers: Kevin, Joe and Nick, first recorded a song called “Please Be Mine” back in 2005 and caught the attention of Columbia Records. They signed with the record label and formed a band called Jonas Brothers, and debuted their first song “Mandy” the same year. In the following year, they released their debut album, It’s About Time, but as the record label didn’t pay much attention to it, the album only sold about 67,000 copies. Looking at bad sales, they decided to opt out from Columbia Records in 2007.
