Takeover Tuesday Playlist: CNCO Reveal Their Current Jams, Including Dua Lipa & Daddy Yankee

Lauren Dunn


Welcome back to Takeover Tuesday, where each week, Billboard taps chart-topping artists and tastemakers to compile their very own playlist exclusive to Billboard's Spotify account. We give the artists free rein to base the list on whatever subject they choose. The only rule? Make it as creative and unique to them as possible.

Since their formation on Univision's singing competition La Banda in 2015, Latin boy band CNCO have released a handful of Spanglish tunes for fans from around the world to enjoy. Their latest single, a flirty bop titled "Pretend," is a prime example of their crossover appeal, bouncing between English and Spanish throughout the entire club-ready banger.

The CNCO members -- Richard Camacho, Erick Brian Colón, Zabdiel De Jesús, Joel Pimentel and Christopher Vélez -- all hail from different parts of the world, resultling in an eclectic mix of musical backgrounds that's reflected in their music. So when they came together to make a playlist for Takeover Tuesday, naturally their picks ranged from hip-hop to alt-rock, and included both Spanish and English tunes.

The 29-song playlist is a collection of CNCO's favorite songs at the moment, featuring Dua Lipa and Calvin Harris, Daddy Yankee, Post Malone and Khea. While the guys are digging on current hits like "Taki Taki" from DJ Snake, Selena Gomez, Cardi B and Ozuna, they also highlighted some more unexpected throwbacks like Thirty Seconds to Mars' 2006 breakout "The Kill" and Simple Plan's 2004 classic "Welcome to My Life."

Though there's nearly 30 songs in CNCO's playlist, each member shouted out their personal favorites, further displaying their unique tastes. Joel highlighted Ed Sheeran's "Happier"; Richard selected Chris Brown's "Undecided"; Eric chose Tommy Boysen's "Hookah & Sheridans"; Zabdiel added Sam Smith's "Too Good at Goodbyes"; and Christopher's pick was "The Kill." Of course, the playlist wouldn't be complete without some CNCO jams as well, from fan favorites like "Se Vuelve Loca" to "Pretend."
