Earlier this week, Little Mix revealed that they would be collaborating with Latin boyband CNCO. Fans of both bands were quick to share their excitement, and luckily enough they didn’t have to wait too long to hear the track.
‘Reggaetón Lento (Remix)’ dropped worldwide today, and it’s got song of the summer written all over it. The track, which was originally released by the boyband in October 2016, features both Little Mix and CNCO singing in Spanish and English.
Whilst we love CNCO’s original version, we’re obsessed with this new remix! Both groups’ voices work well together, and the Spanglish combination is already proving to be irresistible. Currently, ‘Reggaetón Lento (Remix)’ is sitting pretty at the top of the UK iTunes chart. We predict that the song is going to be another smash hit for Little Mix, whilst also giving CNCO the UK breakthrough they deserve.
Take a listen to ‘Reggaetón Lento (Remix)’ below.
The original version of ‘Reggaetón Lento’ has been streamed over 472 million times whilst reaching number one in Billboard’s Latin Pop Songs Chart. It has proven to be CNCO’s most successful song so far. The band rose to fame in a similar fashion to Little Mix, after emerging from the first season of Simon Cowell’s musical competition, La Banda. Made up of Christopher Vélez, Erick Brian Colón, Joel Pimentel, Richard Camacho and Zabdiel de Jesús, the group is managed by Ricky Martin and have taken Latin America by storm.
The remix is Little Mix’s first new release following the success of their multi-platinum album Glory Days. Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock released four hugely successful tracks from the album: ‘Shoutout to My Ex’, ‘Touch’, ‘No More Sad Songs’, and ‘Power’.
The ‘Reggaetón Lento (Remix)’ is the latest Spanglish remix track to emerge in recent months. Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber’s ‘Despacito (Remix)’ has been one of the biggest summer anthems across the globe, whilst Enrique Iglesias, Sean Paul and Matt Terry’s ‘Subeme La Radio (Remix)’ is quickly gaining momentum.
