CNCO, a Latin pop boy band that has been together for nearly seven years, has announced its breakup. Before they were scheduled to be announced at the Premios Juventud in 2022, the four members of the group — Christopher Véez, Richard Camacho, Zabdiel De Jess, and Erick Brian Colón — spoke to Billboard about the surprising surprise.
Erick told the newspaper, “We’re nervous but also excited and anxious.” According to Zabdiel, “We always considered that if we split, it had to be natural.” In this sector, we’ve been through a lot as a team, and now we’re ready for new challenges and opportunities to further our careers. “We’re all pretty pumped up,” said the team.
Their Own Independent Expansion and Exploration.
Former member Joel Pimentel left the band only a year ago, in May of 2021, to pursue a solo career. With a final statement to his followers, Joel said that it was time for him to move on and discover new artistic paths. CNCO‘s other members are now following CNCO’s lead and preparing for their own independent expansion and exploration.
For us, it’s a major step in our life that will take us to our solo careers, but at the same time, thrilling since we are eager to experiment and create our own unique sound and character. There is no reason to fear a separation between Christopher and his ex-girlfriend because “we’re merely trying out new, tough things,” Christopher told Billboard. In the course of creating or working together, I’m sure we’ll run across each other again. “We have complete confidence in the outcome.”
CNCO’s breakup will not be instantaneous, according to Billboard, as the group plans to work together for the next year and a half to complete an album, a farewell tour, and their upcoming Latin American Disney+ mini-series 4 Ever. Univision’s reality music competition series La Banda, which was produced by Simon Cowell and Puerto Rican musician Ricky Martin, resulted in the formation of the band CNCO in 2015.
Sony Music Latin signed CNCO to a recording contract for five years as a result of their victory. It wasn’t long before CNCO became one of the most popular and influential Latin boy bands ever, thanks to their unique blend of Latin pop and reggaeton. Seven Billboard Latin Music Awards have been won by the group as a whole, as well as a nomination for Best Latin Album at the 2017 Billboard Awards. Additionally, CNCO was nominated for Best New Artist at the 2017 Latin Grammy Awards.
Their Global Popularity and Spectacular Success.
On the cover of Teen Vogue in April 2021, all five original members of CNCO spoke to writer Lucas Villa about their global popularity and spectacular success. Joel Pimentel, speaking of the CNCOwners, said at the time, “I believe it’s incredibly remarkable that our fans were a part of our growth.” Asked about the group’s split, Christopher said, “They know that we adore them from the beginning.”
“This wouldn’t be feasible without them. I’m confident they’ll follow and support us in our own endeavors. There will always be a two-way street in love. For the sake of delivering the highest quality music possible, we’re going to improve as musicians. “They know how much we care.” Adding to Richard’s statement, “CNCO opened the doors for us in the industry and now we have more options to keep writing and meet other people, get into the studio and create new vibes,” Richard said.

CNCO’s Announcement at Premios Juventud.
Since everyone has made a contribution, we’d be nothing if it weren’t for the love and affection we’ve shown one other. I don’t think this is a bad thing at all. Ultimately, we just want to grow and have fun. We may return at some point in the future.
“It’s a mystery.” Only time will tell. CNCO will be greatly missed, but its beneficial influence will not be erased. There are only 18 months left for CNCOwners to enjoy all of the spectacular, final moments the group has promised.
