NICK JONAS TO PERFORM AT 2016 "MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS"

Ty Dolla $ign Joins Jonas for Performance of "Bacon" from His Latest Studio Album "Last Year was Complicated"

NEW YORK, NY (August 17, 2016) - Multi-platinum recording artist Nick Jonas today announced that he will hit the streets of New York City in a special performance, presented by Pepsi, at the 2016 "MTV Video Music Awards." He will perform his hit single "Bacon" ft. Ty Dolla $ign from his second solo studio album, "Last Year was Complicated," making his debut as a solo artist during the VMA's main show. The 2016 VMAs will air LIVE from New York's iconic Madison Square Garden for the first time ever on Sunday, August 28 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

In keeping with the spirit of this year's show celebrating the creative expression of artists, Jonas made his announcement with a video that was custom-created by Brooklyn-based motion graphics artist, Zolloc. To view the video - click HERE (embed below).

Island Records artist, Nick Jonas, introduced himself as a fully-formed solo artist on his hit, self-titled debut, released in November 2014. The critically-acclaimed album included the double-platinum and #1 U.S. radio hit, "Jealous" and his sultry chart-climbing radio single, "Chains."

Jonas, also an accomplished actor, stars in the gritty television show 'Kingdom' - a mixed martial arts drama that premiered in the fall of 2014. He recently appeared in two more high-profile roles, a guest-starring role in Fox's horror-comedy series, 'Scream Queens' and a lead in the critically-acclaimed 'Goat' produced by and featuring James Franco.

A recipient of the Hal David Starlight Award by the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Jonas released his sophomore solo album "Last Year Was Complicated" in June of 2016, which debuted as the Billboard #1 selling album of the week and includes the platinum hit "Close" featuring Tove Lo.

Most recently the solo powerhouse joined his longtime friend, Demi Lovato, on their "Honda Civic: Future Now" tour which will be touring throughout North America until early this fall.

Los Angeles born R&B Singer, Tyrone Griffin more notably known as Ty Dolla $ign shot to stardom with his breakout mixtape, 2012's Beach House. His hit single "My Cabana" was not only last summer's round the clock party anthem, but it figures to be played in every pool and beachside cabana around the country. Ty Dolla $ign has written some of the most well-crafted and melodic pop songs on the radio. He is one of the most popular street rappers in LA, but it wasn't until he wrote and produced his hit "Toot it and Boot it," that he earned radio airplay.
