Yes, take it off!

Nick Jonas ditches his clothes, flexes his muscles and gets frisky with Tove Lo in their steamy and artistic new music video, "Close." The clip was posted Friday and many viewers have compared it to the work of Sia.

Jonas, 23, starts out wearing a gray sweater, an olive green jacket and beige pants and sings to Tove Lo, 28, who is dressed in similar shades. Both sit on chairs in a large room. His chair moves backwards and forwards and tries to get closer and closer to Tove Lo.

Meanwhile, their clothes start to unravel and come off until they are both left wearing nude undergarments, after which they slowly attempt to touch each other tenderly. They then engage in a very Sia-like dance, complete with dramatic arm gestures and floor exercises, and start to get kinda dirty—literally. Then the PDA begins and it is hot.

"I actually was texting Tove Lo, I said, 'Look, there's about to be some babies made to this song,'" Jonas said on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show On-Air With Ryan Seacrest. "And they'd better name them after us."

Jonas tweeted Thursday that the song "Close" is "about how I literally can't open up and be vulnerable with someone."

The single is featured on Jonas' new album, Last Year Was Complicated, which is set for release on June 10.

"I've been making this record for a year and a half...Pouring everything I have into it. When I first started making I thought I knew what it would be about..." he said about his album. "Then I had a breakup."

Jonas dated Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo, 23, between 2013 and 2015.

"It then became very clear what this thing would be about...And that I would need to dig really deep," he added. "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."
