New York: Recording artiste Nick Jonas on Wednesday announced that he will hit the streets of New York in a special performance at the 2016 Video Music Awards (VMAs).

He will perform his hit single Bacon ft. Ty Dolla $ign from his second solo studio album Last Year was Complicated, making his debut as a solo artiste during the VMA's main show.

The 2016 VMAs will air from the iconic Madison Square Garden on August 29 on Vh1, read a statement from the channel.

In keeping with the spirit of this year's show celebrating the creative expression of artistes, Jonas made his announcement with a video that was custom-created by Brooklyn-based motion graphics artist Zolloc.

An Island Records artiste, Jonas introduced himself as a fully-formed solo artist on his hit self-titled debut, released in November 2014. The critically-acclaimed album included the hit track Jealous and his chart-climbing radio single Chains.

Also an actor, he stars in the gritty television show Kingdom, a mixed martial arts drama that premiered in 2014. He recently appeared in two more high-profile roles, a guest-starring role in Fox's horror-comedy series Scream Queens and the lead in the critically-acclaimed Goat.

Jonas released his sophomore solo album Last Year Was Complicated in June this year.

Most recently the singer joined his long-time friend, Demi Lovato, on their 'Honda Civic: Future Now' tour which will be touring throughout North America until early this fall.
