CNCO becomes one of Latin pop's most influential and prolific hit-makers.
Since making their debut in 2015, CNCO has quietly become one of the biggest acts in the world. With over 3 billion cumulative streams, 6.5 billion total music video views, 12 GOLD, and PLATINUM certifications in the U.S. alone and countless sold-out shows, their influence can be felt in nearly every corner of the globe.
After a surprise single release on Friday, CNCO took the VMA mainstage for the first time with a showstopping performance of their newest hit “Beso.” As one of only two Latin acts of the night, the boys showed off their signature smooth choreography and high energy stage presence while performing in front of a live audience of fans at a special drive-in location, sponsored by Toyota.
After months in quarantine, and a tease to their fans for the past few weeks of an unidentified 14 second audio of a song, on Friday, CNCO dropped “Beso” as a surprise to their fans. Since the songs release, it has received over 3 million cumulative streams, landed on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlists, in the U.S. and 14 other territories, in addition to Latin Pop Hits and Latin Flavor. Furthermore, “Beso” shot straight to #1 on Apple Music’s Latin Songs chart, as well as playlisted on Puro Pop, ¡Dale Play!, New Music Daily and multiple others, as well as trended at #7 worldwide on YouTube on the audio video.

After months in quarantine, and a tease to their fans for the past few weeks of an unidentified 14 second audio of a song, the award-winning, multiplatinum Latin American boy band, CNCO surprise their fans with the highly anticipated release of their new single “Beso.”
