He wasn't feelin' Nick's original idea

Nick Jonas's new album Last Year Was Complicated is coming out pretty soon (June 10th, to be precise); and it turns out we actually have Jay-Z of all people to thank for the title.

Yup - Jay's been mentoring Nick J a bit behind-the-scenes after the pair first met backstage at one of his shows; and since the rapper wasn't feelin' the original album title Nicholas Jerry decided to totally scrap it.

Chatting to CBS 97.1 AMP, Nick said: "He's been super hands-on. I had a title picked out, Unhinged, [and Jay-Z] said 'I don't feel like it quite sums up the story you're telling. Let's just talk about this year of your life. What's it been like?' and I said 'last year was complicated.' He was like 'that's the title.'

So there you go - the story behind Nick Jonas's album title. We actually bloody love it, don't know about you.

This all comes as Nick and Demi Lovato prepare to kick off their Honda Civic Tour and he releases his new Tove Lo collab 'Close;' so it's all go right now really.
