The Chainsmokers Setting Fires
Nick Jonas

Let's file this one under things we didn't expect but that we'd like to hear more of. .

Last night, during a set for Hilton Hotels' 'Hilton At Play' series, Nick Jonas performed a couple of songs outside his repottoire. The former boy band heart throb took it back to the mid 2000s with a performance out Outkast's "Roses".

It was his performance of one of Rihanna's newer tracks "Bitch Better Have My Money" that piqued our love of covers. Nick made no secret that he was a fan of the song when it first came out which sort of inspires a warm feeling of synchronicity, no?

Nick can be heard languidly taking on the trap influenced track, looking very much in his element.

While it's only a short video, it's good enough to warrant a demand for a full cover version.

You hear that, Nick. A full version!
