Album: Global Citizen - EP1 (2018)
  • On November 26, 2018 Parlophone Records announced a mysterious new signing to their rooster: Los Unidades. The label posted a shadowy picture of the act on Twitter prompting fans to point out that the four silhouettes bore a striking resemblance to a distorted version of an old Coldplay press shot.

    When their first song, "E-Lo," was released a couple of days later, it clearly bore the DNA of Chris Martin and co.
  • The Afro-beat track is a collaboration with Pharrell Williams and Memphis hip-hop artist Jo'zzy. It was produced by The Neptunes.
