Oh, Nick Jonas. The musical artist who was once part of the Jonas Brothers trio has blossomed into a powerhouse solo artist (and a mighty good-looking one at that!). Today, Nick turns 23, which makes us feel rather old when you think back to when "Year 3000" was still on the radio, but, also, a little better about crushing on him now that he is a full-fledged adult.

Speaking of Nick's solo career, since the Jonas bros decided to go their own ways professionally, the youngest of the three brunette band members has been making some major headway in the music industry. In 2014, he released his hit single "Jealous," which peaked at No. 7 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and No. 2 in the U.K. Singles Chart.

Then, in 2015, Nick landed the role of guest mentor on Season 8 of The Voice and it was also announced that the artist would appear in the comedy-horror TV series, Scream Queens, which premieres this month. And, um, in case you are interested, the show's official trailer, which features a plethora of big names such as Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin, Lea Michele, Keke Palmer, and Ariana Grande, also includes a shirtless appearance from the birthday boy himself. Just sayin'.

Based on how quickly Nick's career has taken off, we can't wait to see what's up next for the uber talented musician. Scroll through to see some of the artist's best solo career moments thus far. Happy birthday, Nick!
