Nick Jonas' Rocking Jealous 2015 Billboard Music Awards Performance

Nick Jonas fans have many reasons to be excited today.

Today, the 22-year-old pop sensation revealed he would drop his new single "Levels" on August 21st and will perform the song live at the pre-show of this year's 2015 MTV Video Music Awards on August 30th.

Jonas took to Instagram early this morning to make the announcement with a witty video captioned: "My new single, "Levels" drops August 21st. I'll perform it live for the first time ever on the VMA pre-show. Also, this afternoon from 1-4 PST, I will be taking over MTV's snapchat and Instagram. Check it out. #NJLevelsVMAs."



"Levels" will be the lead single from his upcoming (yet-to-be-titled!) album, which follows up "Chains" and "Jealous" from 2014's self-titled album "Nick Jonas." Jonas has been the opening act for select dates of the Maroon 5 World Tour and will also be the opening act at the Canadian dates of Kelly Clarkson's Piece Bye Piece Tour.

"Chains" is up for best male video at the MTV Video Music Awards.
