Remember I Told You

Album: Yet to be titled (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Here, a heartbroken Nick Jonas croons about a former flame that he believed was the right person for him. He is joined on the track by British singer-songwriter, Anne-Marie who also sings on Clean Bandit's "Rockabye" and American singer/rapper Mike Posner.
  • Nick Jonas told Hero magazine that he started writing the song while he was on tour in 2016 and showed it to Mike Posner, who was the special guest on the tour. "It was a rainy day in Maine, so I went on the studio bus and I started this track and I really liked the way it sounded," he recalled.

    "I text Mike Posner who was the special guest on the tour, I was like, 'Hey man, why don't you come onto the bus, I've got this track going you might be into,'" Nick continued. "He came out, listened to it two times, and was like, 'I love it, I've got some lyric ideas.' So he jumped in the booth, and within five hours from the time I started the beat to the time I eventually laid my vocals in with the lyrics that we'd written, it was pretty much done."
  • This was Nick Jonas' first collaboration with Anne-Marie. However, he's worked with the artist who took a pill in Ibiza before. Mike Posner joined him on "Closer", the closing track of Nick's 2014 self-titled album.
