In a statement posted on their official Twitter account, the band wrote:
We want to start by saying how much we truly love you and appreciate all of the support you give us day in and day out, year after year, for that reason, we're sad to tell you that after five and a half unforgettable and life changing years together, Friday, May 14th will be Joel's last day as a member of CNCO.
We want you all to know that while Joel is leaving and will be pursuing new opportunities, we are and will always be brothers. We support him in his next chapter, and will always, most importantly, remain a family.

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 for sticking with us. While it will be different, we are so excited to continue into this new era of CNCO, and can't wait for all of you to see what we have in store for you!
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 final gift all together. On Friday, we will perform, the five of us, one last time for our global livestream concert event. We hope you can joins us!
We love you and will see you very soon!
Christopher, Erick, Richard & Zabdiel.

I'm not exactly a fan of them but I like their music, their tropical singles were 🔥 (more than what I can say about una dirección). What's your favorite latin american band, ONTD?
