Reggaetón Lento (Remix) - CNCO & Little Mix |

Now I've been waiting to review this music video, knowing full well that it would be one of my Chart Mondays reviews; and here we are, even though I am so far behind on my blog - but I'm catching up. A total of 16 days behind, again; it seems that I can't quite catch up, but that doesn't stop me; for those of you who know me, you know that I won't give up and I will catch up, eventually. To do so, I'll need to keep focused. At the time of this blog, Post Malone is still at number one on the UK Singles Chart, with "Rockstar" featuring 21 Savage, with no music video - I'm not so keen on the song, so I'm glad I don't have to feature it on my blog. This opened the Top 10 again, and since this is dropping down, I thought it was about time to feature it on my blog! Watch CNCO and Little Mix flirt across an open-plan club as they suggest they're into one another in this music video for "Reggaetón Lento (Remix)".

CNCO are a five-piece Latin band consisting of Christopher Vélez, Richard Camacho, Joel Pimentel, Erick Brian Colón, and Zabdiel De Jesùs. They were formed on the Latin TV show La Banda, winning a five-year contract with Sony Music Latin. It seems that many stars are coming from La Banda, recently; especially with Global Records snapping up some of the artists, including Micke Moreno. Latin music sure is big, so it's no surprise this song has done well with the help of Little Mix collaborating. CNCO are sure ones to watch as Latin music takes over the world. As for Little Mix, they're already highly established and are still the only group to win The X Factor in the UK. They consist of Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jesy Nelson, and Jade Thirlwall. They're one of the most successful girl groups in the world, and continue to release hit after hit after hit. The group is gearing up to release their Platinum Edition of their UK number one album Glory Days and I literally cannot wait! This song is a remix of CNCO's original track "Reggaetón Lento (Bailemos)" which hit the charts hard in Latin America. All before the remix allowed the track to soar high in the UK and Europe. The song was written by Luis Angel O'Neill, Eric Perez, Jadan Andino, Jorge Class, Jean Rodríguez, Richard Camacho, and Camille Purcell.

The music video was directed by Marc Klasfeld, and Little Mix confirmed that they never met CNCO; so this whole video has been edited cleverly. It also explains why they never go to the dance floor.

Both groups flirt with one another across the bar, it seems interesting that there's five CNCO members and only four Little Mix members, this is either not going to end well, or one of the guys are going to be left alone - sounds like my usual night out for me.

They are in separate booths on the balcony of a club. The dance floor below them is thriving with dancers - that's where I would probably be if I were at this club, it's difficult to get me off the dance floor.

Each of the girls, step up in front of the group to sing their parts of the song, allowing the camera to fully identify each of the members of Little Mix and to prove how hot each of them are. Differently, CNCO remain seated when singing their individual parts, which kind of makes the video focus on Little Mix a hell of a lot more than it does on CNCO.

They send secret messages and gifts to one another, but what is most surprising is that the CNCO guys get on to the dancefloor in the middle and dances with some of the dancers; all the while, leaving Little Mix in their booth. Surely after all that flirting CNCO and Little Mix would've got together on the dancefloor.

Overall, they have totally managed to pull this music off to some extent. It could've been so much better if this was actually done with each of the acts opposite one another; however, editing has made this intricately engaging, regardless. I would've liked to have seen Little Mix get on the dancefloor and dance with guys, teasing CNCO right back.
