Joe Jonas resorted to music as therapy following his split from Gigi Hadid. The DNCE frontman put pen to paper and wrote break-up songs to cope with the end of his relationship with the Victoria's Secret model in November 2015. Fans shouldn't get their hopes up though as Jonas admits he has no plans to release the songs.
The Cake By The Ocean hitmaker began dating the supermodel in May but their romance came to an end six months later. Jonas, 27, reveals he channelled his heartbreak into writing songs and found the process "therapeutic".
The singer told The Sun: "Those songs in particular didn't make the album. You might hear them eventually, songs leak all the time, but I think the place I was in my life when I wrote them, I'm not there anymore, so it wouldn't make sense to release them."
He added: "I'm much happier than I was. They were reactive and therapeutic. You've got to let it all out and sometimes you have to step back and say, 'Is this me still to this day?' and you realise that you're in a different place."
Jonas previously hinted at the break-up song in a tweet posted in February, telling his Twitter followers: "Always fun writing a song that's gonna piss someone off."
When Hadid, 21, began dating Zayn Malik shortly after, Jonas addressed her new relationship in an interview with The Mirror, stating: "I think it's interesting that she moved on so quickly. I mean, it was definitely very quick."
The Toothbrush star elaborated on comparisons he receives to Malik: "It's comical that I'm compared to him. That dude and I have been compared for years, I think it's just funny. To be honest I haven't really listened to his music, but he can sing well."
The US singer is currently riding high with his pop collective DNCE, which also consists of Jack Lawless, Cole Whittle and JinJoo Lee. Since releasing their debut album Swaay in 2015, the band have enjoyed airplay with their singles Cake By The Ocean and Toothbrush and most recently performed at V Festival in the UK.
