Hey DJ! There’s a CNCO Livestream Concert Coming in May

Latin boyband CNCO announced big news for their fans this week. The guys are putting on a livestream concert in May.

The livestream show will include songs from the band’s Déjà Vu album.

CNCO: Déjà Vu Global Streaming will be happening on May 14. Members Joel Pimentel, Erick Brian Colón, Christopher Vélez, Zabdiel de Jesús, and Richard Camacho will be performing songs from their latest album Déjà Vu, a collection of covers of Latin music classics from the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s.

There are music videos for every song on Déjà Vu and they’re still being rolled out. Most recently, CNCO released the visuals for their covers of Christian Castro’s “Por Amarte Así” and Sin Bandera’s “Entra En Mi Vida.” In the former, the guys sing the Castro hit in the middle of the woods while in the latter, they’re serving Sin Bandera with more sensual vibes.

CNCO is putting on their livestream concert with OCESA. The show will be available worldwide, so their fans can enjoy the music from a safe distance during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tickets are now available here. There’s also a Zoom and Greet option where can chat meet the guys over Zoom and be treated to an extra three acoustic songs.

CNCO’s greatest hits will also be in the setlist.

Not only will they perform songs from Déjà Vu, but the guys will also be singing their greatest hits. Hopefully among those CNCO classics will be “Reggaeton Lento,” “Hey DJ,” and “Se Vuelve Loca.” Even their recent sexy and grown singles like “Honey Boo” with Natti Natasha and “Beso” could be great ones to perform.

At last month’s Premio Lo Nuestro awards, CNCO was joined by Ricardo Montaner for their surprise performance of “Tan Enamorados.” They’re strangely not nominated at April’s Latin American Music Awards for Favorite Group or Duo, a category the group has dominated in the past.

“Black Spring is a moment to celebrate our African lineage and not allow the exploits of colonialism to further separate us whether we speak Spanish, English, Portuguese, French, or Dutch,” Tina Farris, NPR Music’s producer of the event, said in a statement. “We are Black. Celebrating with Tiny Desk is the perfect partner for this expansion in highlighting Afro-Latine and Afro-Caribbean voices.”

The main event Black Spring will start afterward at 4 p.m. EST. Fans can stream the event worldwide at planetafropunk.com. Joining ChocQuibTown and Rico Nasty for the virtual concert will be Seu Jorge, Seafoam Walls, DAWERXDAMPER, Black Pantera, Projexx, and Jup Do Bairro. Santana Caress Benitez will host.

ChocQuibTown has teamed up with artists like Chicana singer Becky G, fellow Colombiano Manuel Turizo, and Panamanian superstar Sech. In our Nu Music Friday list, we highlighted the group’s collaboration “Midnight Boom” with Ir-Sais and Afro B.

Salsa superstar Marc Anthony was set to have his global livestream concert “Una Noche” Saturday, April 17 at 8 p.m. EST. He was supposed to perform his greatest hits and fans were hyped about a Daddy Yankee cameo. However, the concert never happened on its initial date. Here’s what went down.

The livestream was supposed to start on Saturday, April 17 at 8 p.m. EST through the Maestro platform. 

The Maestro platform has in the past streamed events like the Fortnite World Cup, NBA, Coachella, and more live events.

At the time of the concert, it was estimated to have sold over 100,000 tickets starting at $25 each and fans from over 85 countries were going to watch the historic event. 

Marc Anthony posted on his Instagram that they were working through technical difficulties.

By 1 a.m. EST on Sunday that they finally pulled the plug and announced the cancellation. 

“Due to the overwhelming demand that caused a complete collapse of the streaming platform,” Anthony said in a statement. “I am deeply sorry for this technology failure that unfortunately was out of our control.”

Fans took to Twitter to share their reactions/memes to #MarcAnthonyUnaNoche.

Marc, being the class act that he is, posted a lengthy apology and assured fans that he would work on getting their refunds and that the people that waited so long to watch him in concert, will in fact get a chance to see the show.

To make it up to his fans, Anthony shared the original livestream for free on his YouTube channel for 24 hours.

For 24 hours, fans were able to watch the show from the original livestream. Anthony again reassured fans that their tickets would be refunded.

At last, Marc Anthony fans, we got our concert!

While the experience wasn’t as smooth as intentionally planned, Marc was a man of his word and the concert was a delight for many fans worldwide.

Thank you Marc for your commitment to your fans!
