CNCO is a Latin American boy band. The group previously consisted of five members– Richard Camacho, Erick Brian Colon, Christopher Velez, Zabdiel De Jesus and Joel Pimentel. After 6 years of fame and success, Joel Pimentel is departing from the boy band. Now the band has only remaining four members.
CNCO officially announced about Joel leaving the group on 9th May. However Joel will be performing for the last time with his band members on the upcoming virtual concert. The official post says that,” After five and a half unforgettable and life changing years together, Friday, May 11th will be Joel’s last day as a member of CNCO”.
What is the reason behind Joel’s leaving CNCO?
The 22 years old Mexican-American artist expressed his feelings on taking such a decision on his social media platform. He wrote,” It’s time to start building my own path and career. This is why I’ve decided to leave the band”. Joel further continues by writing, “I can’t wait to share my new projects with you all. This is just a new beginning”.
So basically Joel wants to grow and explore the artistic avenues on his own and do something as an individual. He is still very young and has a bright future ahead of him. However fans are definitely going to miss him as a member of CNCO.
How did the other members of the band react to it?
CNCO has previously launched eight hit songs on Billboard’s Latin pop airplay chart. The band’s songs are loved worldwide with a huge fan following. But the sudden departure news of Joel from the band has left fans disheartened.
But the remaining four members have accepted this and have given their views on it. They wrote,” We know this news is saddening and is going to be as hard for all of you as it is for us, but we appreciate you sticking with us. While it will be different, we are so excited to continue, in this new era of CNCO and can’t wait for all of you to see what we have in the store for you”.
The band members also mentioned about their upcoming live concert. “You guys are what keep us going and have us so excited to continue together stronger than ever. For that reason, we wanted to give you a finale gift all together”.
Fans will be happy to see all five of them performing together for one last time. This could be really emotional as well.
