Jonas Brothers score the first boyband Number 1 in 16 years on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US

Jonas Brothers are back in a big way.

When it comes to Number 1 singles by boybands, there's been quite the drought in America... until now.

The Jonas Brothers' comeback single Sucker - their first release in six years - debuts at Number 1 on this week's Billboard Hot 100, going straight in at the top with the most streams (43.7 million) and downloads (88,000) of the week. Sucker gives Jonas Brothers their highest position as a group, surpassing the Number 5 peak of their 2008 hit Burnin' Up.

Even more impressive is that they're the first boyband in 16 years to claim a US Number 1. B2K were the last to do it when their song Bump Bump Bump ft. P Diddy led the Hot 100 in February 2003. They are also joined by 98 Degress and *NSYNC as only the fourth boyband this millennium to pick up a Number 1 in the US.

It turns out there's been a scarcity of chart-topping boybands in the UK of late, too. August 2015 was the last time one topped the Official Singles Chart, when One Direction debuted at Number 1 with Drag Me Down. The only other boybands to top the UK chart this decade are Take That, Rixton (a boyband about to make their own comeback), 5 Seconds of Summer, JLS and The Wanted.

Jonas Brothers could still become the first boyband in three-and-a-half years to claim a UK chart topper; last week, Sucker was the highest new entry at Number 6.
