The pop band group from Latin America, CNCO is our latest boy band crush.
CNCO (pronounced as Seen-co) was formed by the famous talent manager Simon Cowell in 2015. Almost everybody knows how ruthless Simon is, right? After all these years being branded as the most difficult judge to impress, we all know that Simon is very picky when it comes to talents. But since these boys won Simon’s Latin American Competition series “La Banda”, CNCO was formed in 2015. And thus Simon created a gem for us.
This relatively new boy band CNCO is already our favorite with its release of some of the best songs and albums like ‘Tan Fácil’, ‘Themselves’, ‘Primera Cita’, and many more. Their songs made it the BillBoard’s top list and some might even say that CNCO is taking the torch and leading a new era of boy-band in the pop genre.
