Nick Jonas gets album help

JAY Z helped Nick Jonas pick his album title.

The 'Jealous' hitmaker is set to release his new LP, 'Last Year Was Complicated', in June and has revealed the 'Empire State of Mind' rapper was instrumental in helping him choose the album's name.

He said: "I had a title picked out. It was called 'Unhinged', it's one of the songs on the album.

"[Jay Z] said, 'Look, listen. As I've heard the whole body of work now and gotten to know you better, I don't feel like it quite sums up the story you're telling. So, let's just talk about this year of your life. What's it been like?' And I said, 'Last year was complicated.' And he was like, 'That's the title!'"

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old singer previously revealed he "poured everything" into his new album.

He wrote on Twitter: "I've been making this record for a year and a half ... Pouring everything I have into it. Tomorrow night I'm gonna show the world the first single. When I first started making I thought I knew what it would be about ... Then I had a breakup. It then became very clear what this thing would be about ... And that I would need to dig really deep.

"S**t is too real sometimes ... Reliving some of these real life experiences through this music is hard. But I know it's important that I do it. I want to be an open book in my art..The first song you're gonna hear tomorrow night is about how I literally can't open up and be vulnerable with someone. (sic)"
