Colon said, “We are feeling nervous but at the same time, we feel excited, anxious.” De Jesus added, “We’re ready to try new things. We always thought that if we split, it had to be natural, and that’s how it happened.”
The band further added, “We can’t wait to share our new music. We are doing things that we have never done before and pushing ourselves to create everlasting memories for our fans. This new era is full of surprises. It will be the best you’ve seen from CNCO so far.”
