There’s no denying that the video was pure *fire emoji*. The Little Mix girls look amazing in it and completely slayed with fierce dance moves and gorgeous outfits. CNCO also turned up the heat and looked sharp in leather, sleeveless shirts and hot, hot, hot button-ups.
But one thing that some fans didn’t like and were a little confused about is the lack of interaction between Little Mix and CNCO.
The bands didn’t dance with each other once. They didn’t even share a shot with each other and some fans think it’s all a little odd. Take a look at some of these tweets.

So why didn’t Little Mix and CNCO dance together? Well, the answer is simple. The bands filmed their parts for the video on separate days. That’s right. The chances are Little Mix and CNCO weren’t even in the same room as each other when ‘Reggaetón Lento (Remix)’ was shot.
Unfortunately, it’s something that frequently happens when artists collaborate and have conflicting schedules. There are so many different components to a music video and often it’s hard to get everyone in the same place at the same time.
As a result, sometimes labels make the decision to film music videos in two halves. Once each act has filmed their footage, a team of pros will then edit everything together to make it look like the artists shot the video at the same time.
