Joel Pimentel is leaving CNCO to move on to a new chapter of his career, Billboard has learned.
The band announced Pimentel's departure on Sunday (May 9) with a statement posted in Spanish and English. His last official appearance with CNCO will be at a livestreaming concert this Friday (May 14).
"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," the group, who just released the covers album Déjà Vu in February, wrote on Twitter. "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."
