If CNCO aren’t on your radar yet – you’re missing out. The Latino boyband were put together in true Simon Cowell style on the first season of La Banda and then went on to win the entire series.
Made up of Joel, Christopher, Richard, Erick and Zabdiel, they each originate from a different country in South America.
Here are five reasons you should be obsessed with them.
They’ve already had a huge hit with Little Mix
If ‘Reggaetón Lento’ wasn’t your most played song of 2017, you’re lying.
The boys have also previously teamed up with Meghan Trainor and Sean Paul!
They can make any song their own
Even some of our favourite artists can’t put their own spin on someone else’s song. That’s not the case with CNCO, listen to this killer version of Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’ and prepare to have your mind blown.
They don’t pigeonhole themselves to one genre
They explore Hispanic, urban pop, salsa and more, basically it sounds like everything you could ever want and more.
Their songs are catchy af
It doesn’t even matter if you don’t speak Spanish or got a bad grade at school, that’s not the point. CNCO will immerse you into their culture and have you dancing within seconds, trust us. Need more persuading? Listen to their sophomore album on Spotify below.
Their live shows are bursting with energy
Insanely good dance moves? Check. Backflips for no reason whatsoever but to stun you? Check. Vocals that don’t miss a note? Yup, check. CNCO’s live shows need to be seen to be believed.
Luckily for you, you don’t have long to wait for their debut UK headline show. They play London’s Shepherd’s Bush on March 24th, get your tickets here.
