Early life and education
Joel grew up in Hesperia in a Mexican family; his mother is Patricia Pimentel and although Spanish is Joel’s native language, years passed before he learned to speak or understand it.
He became interested in singing and making music at the age of eight, after being motivated by his grandfather, who had been a musician during his teenage years. Joel began taking singing lessons and found solace in music after being bullied at school for his “different” appearance and being Mexican. Nicknamed “Potato,” it all made Joel shy and introverted and didn’t have many friends growing up.
After enrolling in high school, he started acting by appearing in school plays, and while he has continued to do a bit of acting over the years, he is mostly focused on his singing career. Joel has no plans to enroll in college.
Career as a musician
Joel started his career in 2015, after signing up to participate in the first season of the reality TV show “La Banda”. He reached the final and defeated Alan Matheus to become a member of the band of five boys – Christopher Velez, Richard Camacho, Zabdiel De Jesus, Erick Brian Colon and Joel. The band was renamed CNCO in December 2015 and signed a five-year contract with Sony Music Latin, with rapper Wisin producing their first album.
The boys released their debut song titled “Tan Facil” on January 29, 2016, reaching #25 on Billboard Latin Rhythm Airplay, and held their first concert at The Fillmore Miami Beach. They went on tour in February 2016, opening for Ricky Martin all over the US and in several South American countries such as Argentina and Chile. Their second single titled “Quisera” was released on May 13, 2016, and in the summer CNCO was nominated for six awards, winning five, including the My Pop/Rock Artist Producer’s Choice Award and My Favorite Fan-Army.
They released their debut album “Primera Cita” – “First Date” in English – on August 26, 2016 with 14 songs, while the single “Reggaeto Lento (Bailemos)”, released on October 7, gained worldwide popularity and reached number 6 in the Billboard Hot Latin Songs. CNCO had their first solo tour from February 26, 2017, visiting 15 countries and performing 40 times.
Their second self-titled album was released on April 6, 2018, peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums. They kicked off 2019 with the release of their single “Pretend” on February 15, and “De Cero” followed on June 24, with their first extended play (EP) titled “Que Quienes Somos”, released on October 11, 2019 with seven tracks.

Therefore, rumors are circulating on the internet that the popular singer could be gay.

Joel admires Kendall for her attractive looks and her adventure in acting, as she appeared in TV series such as “Khloe & Lamar” in 2011, “I Am Cait” in 2015 and the movie “Ocean’s 8” in 2018.
