The Latino boy band released their newest single "Party, Humo y Alcohol" on Thursday — and it's nothing like what you've heard from the group thus far.
"We're about to enter a new era of CNCO and I think you'll like it a lot," Zabdiel De Jesús tells PEOPLE of the track.
The group, which consists of members De Jesús, 24, Richard Camacho, 24, Christopher Vélez, 26, and Erick Brian Colón, 21, says they experimented with new sounds and topics on this single — something they plan to do more of moving forward.

Blue Jays sign All-Star lefty Yusei Kikuchi to three-year, $36M contract
Kikuchi is going to be joining a strong rotation in Toronto.Starting pitching has been a hot commodity this offseason, with most of the top names signing before the lockout. Now that the transactions freeze has thawed, the market has picked up right where it left off. The top two free-agent hurlers who lingered on the market through the lockout, Clayton Kershaw and Carlos Rodon, signed on the first full day after the lockout ended. That left Kikuchi and Zack Greinke as the only healthy starters remaining from MLBTR’s list of Top 50 Free Agents. With the Jays scooping up Kikuchi, that leaves Greinke as the last man standing.
Despite its name, which translates to "Party, Smoke and Alcohol," the "Reggaetón Lento" singers say it may not be what you initially think.
"It just talks about empowering women. To be honest, this song is about her. And it's about our fans," Vélez says.
The group is known for their classic reggaeton sound, but this time around they've incorporated bouncy, electric beats for their listeners.
"They'll feel a different vibe from us. I think with this one, we reached a new area," Camacho says. "It's going to be very cool for them to feel empowered, feel like this song is for them. Especially if they're going through a heartbreak and they don't know how to get out of it. We're telling them to be yourself and just go enjoy yourself and embracing their presence as a woman."
Marlins reportedly uninterested in trading any top three starters
It’s been clear throughout the offseason that the Marlins are willing to deal from a deep stockpile of starting pitching that is perhaps unrivaled in terms of quantity. The Fish already moved righty Zach Thompson to the Pirates in the trade that netted them catcher Jacob Stallings, and they’re expected to continue pursuing offensive help after the lockout — be it on the trade market or in free agency. With an enviable stockpile of arms, there’s been plenty of speculation as to who might be on the move, and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald lists righty Elieser Hernandez as one possibility.
In the music video, the group is dressed in silver, metallic outfits from head to toe — and Colón says he thinks their wardrobe was "so fire."
In December, the group celebrated their sixth anniversary as a band and they all agree it has gone by "so fast."
"We've seen the growth through these six years now. We are super-empowered by our careers and in control of what we want to do and what we want to show to the public, to our fans and what we want to give them. So it's been a journey, but a really cool journey," Vélez says.

He adds, "It's a bunch of things coming. This is the year for CNCO to be honest."
"You'll see a lot of surprises this year," Camacho adds.
It wasn't too long ago, however, that the boy band consisted of five members. Former CNCO member Joel Pimentel announced he would go solo in May.
Since then, Pimentel, 22, released his first single as a solo act in October — which the group says they listened to "as soon as it was released" and they "loved it."
"It's different. I know that he wanted to do different things and try out different styles — and he's doing it. I think it's really really really cool. We support him now that it's out and are super happy about what he's doing," De Jesús says.
