CNCO Band Members to Make Acting Debut on Disney’s Original Fiction Miniseries “4 Ever”

The men of CNCO are ready to role

Christopher Vélez, Richard Camacho, Zabdiel De Jesús and Erick Brian Colón, who make up the popular Latin boy band, are preparing to make their acting debut on Disney’s upcoming original fiction miniseries titled 4 Ever.

CNCOThe five-episodes miniseries, which is being produced by Tolmur and Bourke and directed by Nuno Gomes, will follow the story of four musicians — Andy (Vélez), Ian (Camacho), Ciro (De Jesús) and Darío (Colon) — who are on their way to becoming a popular band in Miami’s music scene.

4 Ever will include three original songs performed by CNCO and three covers of well-known ballads.

According to an official description of the series’ synopsis, “The young musicians meet by chance at a restaurant, where they get involved in an unexpected situation: a valuable guitar has just disappeared. To recover the guitar and return it to its owner the boys must put together a band. Their mission, however, is not as simple as it seems, as they are quite different. However, their passion for music becomes their common language and brings them together despite their differences as they embark on a journey that involves the promise of success – and also failed opportunities.”

4 Ever is currently under production, filming in different locations throughout Miami. It’s slated to premiere exclusively on Disney+ in Latin America later this year.

In January, CNCO released their first single of the year, “PHA (Party, Humo y Alcohol),” which followed “Toa’ La Noche,” their debut single as a quartet.

“We wanted to start off the year doing something different and this song was the correct one for this new era that we’re entering,” CNCO previously told Billboard during an Instagram Live interview.

“PHA,” produced by HV and Kairo La Sinfonia and written alongside the band, is an infectious pop song full of ’80s retro vibes. Besides the new series, the group is also working on new music and collaborations, with a handful of concerts scheduled in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

CNCO Debuts New Single “Beso” During First-Ever MTV Video Music Awards Main Show Performance

It’s a special first for CNCO

The Latin boy band brought their signature style and flare as they live-debuted their new single “Beso” at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards.

CNCO, MTV VMAs

It’s the first time CNCO has performed on the big show. The band had previously performed their single “De Cero” on the red carpet during the MTV VMAs pre-show last year.

CNCO, which was formed during the first season of La Banda, began their set while singing in — and on top of — parked cars at Brooklyn’s Skyline Drive-In, the same place Maluma had performed earlier in the night.

Busting out their best dance moves, the band got the socially distanced crowd hyped as they delivered the first public performance of their new song “Beso.”

Getting as close to the crowd as they could, the band members later moved to the main stage, then danced their way to a second stage in the middle of the venue, where one member was flipped around by his bandmates after fireworks went off in the background.

“We are super excited to be performing at the VMA’s this year,” said CNCO members Christopher Velez, Richard Camacho, Joel Pimentel, Erick Brian Colon and Joel Pimentel prior to the show. “It means so much that we’re able to share our culture with the world. It makes it even better that this year that after not being able to perform for so long, Toyota is giving us the chance to not only do that, but do it in front of our fans. There’s nothing like it, and we can’t wait!”

This year, CNCO is nominated for three VMAs, including Best Quarantine Performance, Best Choreography for “Honey Boo” and Best Group
