As it turns out, getting ditched at Coachella might have been a good thing for Nick Jonas’ career. The singer took part in an interview with Genius to break down the lyrics to his new song “Find You” and he revealed that the music festival played a big role in its creation.
“I was at a point where I was about a year into writing and nothing was connecting and then I went to Coachella,” he explains. “I was hanging out, watching a couple different sets and me and my friends just said ‘Let’s just dance at the rave tent.’ So we go over there, smoke a little bit, and we danced for like five hours straight.”
Afterwards, Nick says he went back to the studio and was inspired to do a “pop song with really deep lyrics.” That pop song eventually became “Find You.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Nick admits that being the perpetual third wheel takes more effort than one might think. He says that everyone comes to him for relationship advice and it’s “ironic” because he is the single one.
“They come to me and I give them this advice and I think to myself, ‘I should be listening to myself,” he adds.
