If you haven't heard yet, 2019 is the year of reemergence. From the remake of A Star is Born, to the new adaptation of Stephen King's Pet Sematary, 2019 is already showing signs of things being recycled. Don't be fooled, the music industry is not immune to this phenomenon. Many artists from our childhood are also being "remade."
The Jonas Brothers.
Kevin, Joe, and Nick. It has been quite some time since we've seen the trio together. The band of brothers split back in October of 2013, leaving their fans heartbroken. It has been nearly six years, but the boys are back. The release of their single Sucker has left everyone speechless as it hit number one on Hot 100 chart. The boys we once knew and loved, are now men. Nick and Kevin are happily married, and Joe is engaged. A lot has changed since we last saw them. From Camp Rock to Jonas LA, these brothers have done it. all. What else will they bring to us in 2019, besides major nostalgia?
Aly and AJ.
Who didn't love Aly and AJ? The dynamic duo was taking over Disney Channel back in the day. Their music was being broadcasted during every Disney Channel commercial. The two even had their own Disney Channel original movie together. Aly even co-starred in Phil of the Future for two years. The two eventually decided they wanted to break away from Disney and start their own band, where 78violet was formed. The band stayed together for a few years but eventually broke up. In 2017, Aly and AJ were once more, releasing their single Take Me, one of my favorites by far. Since the release, the two are back on tour and are creating new music. Expect big things from these girls this year!
Ashley Tisdale was the original Disney channel "mean girl." Tisdale is most popularly known for her roles as Sharpay Evans in High School Musical, and Maddie Fitzpatrick in Suite Life of Zach and Cody. Despite her two largely influential roles on Disney, Tisdale decided to leave the channel and pursue a music career of her own. In 2009, she released her debut album "Headstrong." The album incorporated aspects of the Disney channel image, but also allowed her to be her edgy self. "Headstrong" brought many iconic tunes to life. After her first album, Tisdale's release of music became scattered. Every few years a new single or so would drop, but nothing steady. As of this year, Tisdale is determined to bring her career back to life. In January, her single Love Me and Let Me Go was released. Her new album Symptoms will be released soon.
The Naked Brothers Band.
OK, I know they aren't technically going by The Naked Brothers Band anymore, but hear me out: Nat and Alex Wolff are just as amazing as they were back in the day. Come on, let's cut them some slack. I wouldn't want to identify with who I was when I was twelve either. In 2010, the two boys rocked the edgy pre-teen style all eleven-year-old girls were swooning over. Now 21 and 24, they have altered their style to fit their new mature personas. The pair have ditched their rebellious melodies for more of a soft-spoken tone. But don't worry, the boys keep their edge with their scattered and well-placed f-bombs. 2019 has brought back two icons, and I couldn't be more thankful.
