avatar for CNCO


The five-member band CNCO began its career in late 2015 with great expectations, youthful energy and a strong motivation to succeed. But not even they could have predicted everything that they have accomplished. In just over three years, they have had 10 singles on the Billboard Latin Pop Songs chart. And their worldwide phenomenon “Reggaetón Lento” is a true classic that Latin-music fans will still be singing along to for decades to come. Now, the group is ready to become a major force in mainstream pop/R&B.

But how did these talented guys go from being reality-show contestants to winning over multitudes of fans on five continents?

Ever since its formation, the Latin GRAMMY®-nominated phenomenon CNCO (pronounced C-N-C-O) has dazzled the music industry as one of Latin pop's most influential and prolific hit-makers. Comprised of five young Latinos of different nationalities – Christopher (Ecuador), Erick Brian (Cuba), Joel (México), Richard (Dominican Republic) and Zabdiel (Puerto Rico) – the group emerged from Univision's musical competition La Banda.

CNCO released its debut album Primera Cita (First Date) in 2016, which quickly became a global success and was certified Diamond, Platinum, and Gold in the United States, Latin America and Europe.

Primera Cita produced the group’s first two hits, “Tan Fácil” (So Easy) and “Quisiera” (I Wish), songs that bring together reggaetón rhythms with romantic lyrics and the guys’ attractive vocal blend. But it was the third single – “Reggaetón Lento” – that would go on to make history. Music lovers immediately latched on to the song’s lyrics that pay tribute to old-school urban music. Meanwhile, the music video has racked up over 1.4 billion views on YouTube.

During 2017, CNCO sold out 40 concerts in 15 different countries proving their ticket-selling power. The group also joined Latin music icons Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull on their North American tour opening multiple dates for them in the United States and Canada. 

On April 6, 2018, the group released its second album, titled CNCO, debuting at #1 on the Latin sales charts in the United States and Puerto Rico and becoming the biggest Latin album debut of 2018. Within one month of its release, the album was already certified Platinum in the United States and Chile, Double Platinum in Argentina, and Gold in Mexico and Central America.

CNCO has broken all language barriers and they established themselves as an unstoppable global force with their sophomore album that also debuted #1 in 13 countries across the Americas, such as the United States, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, and on the Top 20 charts in more than 30 countries around the world, including Singapore, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Cameroon, and Israel; as well as European nations like Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Ireland.

Several singles from CNCO (album) - “Hey DJ,” “Mamita,” “Reggaetón Lento (Remix),” “Mi Medicina” and “Fiesta En Mi Casa” - have also received Platinum and Gold sales certifications in the United States, Mexico, Argentina, Chile and Peru. In addition, these singles have accumulated millions of streams/views on digital-music platforms.

They received a Multi-Platinum certification for global sales in excess of 5 million units for their hit “Reggaetón Lento (Remix)” feat. Little Mix which also recently earned them an iHeartRadio Music Award for “Best Remix.”
