CNCO Postpone Album Release Due to Coronavirus, But Confirm New Single Is Coming
CNCO has postponed their album release and upcoming concerts due to the novel coronavirus disease (covid-19). The five members made the announcement via an Instagram Live Wednesday (March 18).
“We had to postpone our shows in Monterrey and in Peru,” Christopher said, confirming that the new date for their Mexico show is August 14 and the new date for Peru is still pending.
They also revealed that the release of their third studio album has been postponed as they will not be able to record new music during the global pandemic. Their album was expected to drop this month. “That’s the most important news right now, and to remind you that it's important to stay at home.” Zabdiel, Erick, Christopher, and Richard were in Miami while Joel joined the video call from his home in Los Angeles.
Despite the changes in their schedule, CNCO confirmed to their over 25,000 connected fans that their single “Honey Boo” in collaboration with Natti Natasha is confirmed to drop soon.
The boys even started a Honey Boo Challenge on social media, encouraging their fans to film their videos while in quarantine.
