A moody ballad by an Australian crooner has notched 134 million views on YouTube.
At just 18, the crooner has millions of people—mostly young girls—clamoring to know more about his life story.
From fighting Nazis to marching alongside Martin Luther King Jr. to singing with Lady Gaga, the crooner has done it all.
Now Nick Jonas, freshly 22 years old and leaving his days as a mommy-approved Jonas Brothers crooner behind, is following suit.
And things seemed fine between the couple, with the crooner appearing sober and healthier-looking, with a new crew cut.
c.1400, originally Scottish, from Middle Dutch kronen "to lament, mourn," perhaps imitative. Originally "to bellow like a bull" as well as "to utter a low, murmuring sound" (mid-15c.). Popularized by Robert Burns. Sense evolved to "lament," then to "sing softly and sadly." Related: Crooned; crooning.
[1460+; fr Scots dialect; related to Dutch kreunen, ''groan, whimper'']
