Nick Jonas has come a long way from his purity ring days.
The 22-year-old singer showed off his six-pack and biceps on the cover of Flaunt Magazine’s “Grind Issue.”
The “Jealous” singer’s new look is thanks to his upcoming DirecTV series, Kingdom, which he bulked up for to perfect the role of a MMA fighter. He is also promoting his self-titled album, which hits stores Nov. 11.
“I really try to be aware of the purpose of each song,” Jonas told Flaunt about his upcoming album. “There are songs on my record that I want people to have sex to, and songs people can listen to when they’re pissed off. And I think that’s the beautiful thing about music: that in those moments, you hear it and it elevates the scenario.”
Jonas even channeled Mark Wahlberg‘s 1992 Calvin Klein shoot. Like Marky Mark, Jonas (Nicky Nick?) grabbed his manhood, as he wore nothing but tight, white boxers.

His shirtless shots don’t end there. In September, the singer was spotted flaunting his rock-hard abs at a NYC gay bar.
We’re not sure why Jonas hasn’t been able to keep his shirt on lately. But whether it’s to promote his album (which is totally working) or to make up for his purity ring days, we’re not complaining!
