CNCO is a Latin-American boy band based in Miami, Florida.[1] The group consists of Richard Camacho, Erick Brian Colón, Christopher Vélez and Zabdiel De Jesús; former member Joel Pimentel departed the band in May 2021. They won a five-year recording contract with Sony Music Latin after becoming the winning competitors of the first season of La Banda. The band toured with Ricky Martin. Their debut and second singles "Tan Fácil" and "Quisiera", charted well soon after their debut.[2][3] They released their first album, Primera Cita on August 26, 2016, which included the hit "Reggaetón Lento (Bailemos)".[4][5][6][7]

The group released their self-titled second studio album, on April 6, 2018, which included the singles "Mamita" and "Se Vuelve Loca".[8] Their debut EP Que Quiénes Somos, containing the singles "De Cero" and "Pegao" featuring Manuel Turizo, was released on October 11, 2019. Both albums debuted at number one on the Billboard Top Latin Albums and the top 40 on the Billboard 200, while the EP debuted within the top 15 of the former chart.

In 2020, they began the era of their album Déjà Vu, a cover album of Latin pop classics, with three singles released from November to December. On February 5, 2021 the band released the LP. The album was released preceded by the fourth single and accompanied by the fifth on its release day.

History[edit]

2015: La Banda[edit]

Erick Brian Colón, Christopher Vélez, Zabdiel De Jesús, Richard Camacho and Joel Pimentel auditioned for the first season of La Banda, a televised singing competition which started on Univision in September 2015, created by Simon Cowell and produced by Ricky Martin.[9] They all received an 75% of votes from the public during auditions except Colón, though he was saved by Martin. The band's members competed individually with other contestants from Latin America and the United States before the show's judges, Martin, Alejandro Sanz and Laura Pausini. The boys had to go through several phases to become the winners. During the competition, they were put into groups, with Camacho and De Jesús in the same band, while Vélez, Colón and Pimentel were in another. The band was formed on the finale of the show, on December 13, 2015, when they received their name, which alludes to the Spanish word for five, "cinco", and is pronounced in English as it is spelled: "C-N-C-O."[10] They won a recording contract of 5 years with Sony Music Latin,[3] and rapper Wisin was scheduled to produce their first album.[1] Martin became their representative.[4][11]

They performed the song "Devuélveme Mi Corazón" on the finale, which included performances by Pitbull, Fifth Harmony, Wisin, and a video congratulations from One Direction.[1][11] They sang it again in Times Square at Univision's Feliz 2016 New Year's celebration.[12][13]

2016: Primera Cita and breakthrough success[edit]

On January 29, 2016, they released their debut single, "Tan Fácil"[14] which debuted on Billboard's Latin Rhythm Airplay at number 25,[15] number 23 on the Hot Latin Songs chart,[16] and instantly topped the U.S. iTunes Latino charts, later peaking at number one on the Latin Airplay chart.[17][18] On January 30, 2016, they held their first concert in The Fillmore Miami Beach.[19][20][21]

On February 12, CNCO started touring as opening acts on Ricky Martin's One World Tour for some of his shows in the U.S., including Hollywood, Florida[22] San Juan, Puerto Rico, and parts of South America, including Chile and Argentina.[23]

On May 13, they released their second single "Quisiera",[24] which peaked on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs at number 29,[3] with its music video premiering on June 3.[25] In May, they sang the national anthem at Yankee Stadium.[18][26] On July 13, the band was nominated for six awards,[18] at Premios Juventud and won five for the Most – "Tan Fácil", My Pop/Rock Artist Producers' Choice Award, My Favorite Twitter Celebrity, and My Favorite Fan-Army; they also performed at the ceremony.[27][28]

In August, their fans, called "CNCOwners", voted the band first place in Billboard's "Favorite New Latin Boy Band Poll'.[3] On August 23, the group asked fans to locate hotspots for songs from their upcoming album, in a Pokémon Go inspired game, called 'CNCOGo', and Ecuadorian fans found the first song, "Cometa".[29]

On August 26, their first album, Primera Cita, (First Date, in English), produced by Wisin, was released.[4][5][30] Wisin spoke about their album saying, "It is a union of countries and cultures. It is what keeps us growing because the people can understand that we can unite different genres."[31] The album has fourteen tracks and includes an urban remix of "Tan Fácil" featuring the rapper, and a ballad version of the song "Quisiera" featuring Spanish singer Abraham Mateo.[30][32] On its release date, the band met fans while traveling with Ricky Martin on his tour, and they gave a concert at the Miami International Mall to celebrate the album's debut.[22][30][33]

In November, they filmed a new music video for one of the songs on Primera Cita, "Para Enamorarte", at the Los Angeles Ramon C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts. It was produced in conjunction with Toyota and included fans who also selected the ending of the video. A video clip was scheduled for airing on La Banda's season finale on December 11, then on Toyota's Latino Facebook page and on YouTube. They also announced plans for their first headlining tour in February 2017 in Latin America.[34] On October 7, they released the single "Reggaetón Lento (Bailemos)", which peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart and number 11 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100.[35]

2017–2018: Más Allá Tour and CNCO[edit]

On February 7, 2017, the band was announced as one of four finalists in the category "Artist of the Year, New" for the 2017 Billboard Latin Music Awards, representing artists who charted well over the past year.[36] On February 26 they began their first headlining tour, Más Allá, in Cochabamba, Bolivia, for a total of 15 countries, including 40 performances in Central and South America, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, and the United States;[36][37] and recorded music for their second album while on tour.[8] On March 24, they were featured on the remix of Becky G's "Todo Cambió".[38] On April 4, 2017, the group officially released the lead single from their second album, "Hey DJ", featuring Puerto Rican singer Yandel; they also released a solo pop version.[39] They were featured on a remix of Enrique Iglesias' "Súbeme la Radio", released on May 12.[40] On May 26, they were featured on Río Roma's song "Princesa".[41]

On April 6, 2018, the boy band released their highly anticipated second self-titled album, CNCO.[8] It debuted at number one on the Billboard Top Latin Albums and entered at number 33 on the Billboard 200, succeeding their debut. The group released "Sólo Yo", along with its music video, to celebrate the album's release.[48] On May 16, CNCO signed a new management deal with Walter Kolm Entertainment, after being managed by Ricky Martin for nearly three years.[49] The music video for the fifth single "Se Vuelve Loca" was made available on July 19, with a Spanglish version being released for digital download and streaming several hours later.[50] It reached number one on the Latin Pop Songs Chart in October 2018.[51] The band embarked on the CNCO World Tour, starting in Guatemala. They announced shows in the United States, thus becoming their first U.S. tour. The band released a collaboration with singer-songwriter Prince Royce on October 26, titled "Llegaste Tú".[52] On November 8, the group released a remix version of "Hey DJ", with American singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor and Jamaican artist Sean Paul.[53]

2019: Que Quiénes Somos[edit]

The band announced the single "Pretend", which was released on February 15, 2019. The song is their first official solo Spanglish release, and samples "Rhythm of the Night" by DeBarge.[54]

CNCO released the single "De Cero" on June 24 along with its music video.[55] They performed a short version of "Pretend" at the Teen Choice Awards of 2019, where they won the Choice Latin Artist and were nominated for Choice Group. Spanish singer-songwriter Abraham Mateo launched his song "Me Vuelvo Loco" in collaboration with the boys in July.[56] The group revealed their first extended play, Que Quiénes Somos, in mid-August, along with its cover art.[57] Its title references the line sung by Colón at the end in most of their songs and also alludes as to who the boys are as they co-wrote the EP themselves.[57] They released the first promotional single, titled "Ya Tú Sabes" in the 23rd of the same month. It contains a sample of a song by Cuban salsa singer Celia Cruz and features Latin Trap in its production.[58] The band was announced as part of the line-up for 2019 MTV Video Music Awards pre-show where they performed "De Cero" on August 26. The second promotional song, named "La Ley", was made free on all digital platforms on September 27. Both songs were released with audios on YouTube. The EP was released on October 11, 2019 and includes seven tracks in total. They also released the single "Pegao" with Manuel Turizo on the same day with a music video.[59] The EP Que Quiénes Somos debuted at #1 on the Latin Pop Albums Billboard chart. The group collaborated with fellow boy band PRETTYMUCH on the song "Me Necesita."[60] CNCO performed "Ya Tú Sabes" and also performed "Me Vuelvo Loco" alongside Abraham Mateo at the 2019 Latin American Music Awards and also won 2 awards that night. On November 7 the group was featured on the song "Como Así" by Argentinian singer Lali Espósito, which appears on her then-upcoming album, Libra.[61] In the same month, CNCO announced a clothing campaign with Forever 21.[62]

2020–present: Déjà Vu and Pimentel's departure[edit]

The band announced their new tour "Press Start" on January 21, 2020.[63] The tour was set to begin on May 30, 2020 at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan, Puerto Rico and end in Chicago, Illinois at the Rosemont Theater on June 21, but was postponed to 2021 due to the ongoing 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic.[64] The boys also stated their self-written third studio album would be released in March, but it was pushed back for the same reason.[65] However, they released a single titled "Honey Boo" with Dominican singer Natti Natasha on April 2 along with its music video.[66] The band received two nominations at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards for Best Quarantine Performance for their MTV Unplugged at Home concert and Best Choreography for "Honey Boo".[67] They also received a nomination for Best Group after voting for the main categories closed.[68] The boys released a song titled "Beso" on August 28 and performed it at the VMAs, this time at the main show.[69] They were announced as winners for Best Quarantine Performance, becoming the first Latin boyband to win a Moonman.[70]

The group stated in November 2020 that they had decided to push back their third album until further notice. Instead, they would release a cover album, composed of Latin pop classics.[71] They released "trailers" on their YouTube channel, revealing the songs covered would be from 1988 until an unknown date. The group released "Tan Enamorados", a song by Ricardo Montaner in the same month. Its music video was inspired by a New Kids on the Block's own, with the band acknowledging the homage.[71] CNCO announced the album, Déjà Vu, with its release date on social media. They released their version of Puerto Rican artist Big Boy's song "Mis Ojos Lloran Por Ti" the following week, with its video being inspired by NSYNC's "Tearin' Up My Heart".[72] The group performed the former song at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 26.[72] In December, they released their cover of "Hero" by Enrique Iglesias, along with a music video inspired by the Backstreet Boys' music video for "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely".[73]

On January 31, 2021, CNCO released their rendition of Franco De Vita's 1986 ballad "Solo Importas Tú". On February 5, the group released their new album, Déjà Vu, to digital download and streaming, along with the tracks' audios on their YouTube channel.[74] The release was accompanied by the fifth single, "Dejaría Todo", a cover of Puerto Rican singer, Chayanne.
