If you’ve been listening to reggaeton for more than two weeks, chances are you’ve caught wind of Ozuna’s Odisea. The debut full-length from the crown prince of perreo continues to break Billboard records, as it’s spent 45 weeks at no. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart. Now the Puerto Rican artist is readying his follow-up, Aura, which is set to drop Friday, August 24.
In an interview with Billboard, Ozuna revealed new details on the project, which has largely been kept under wraps. Fans of his Cardi B collab “La Modelo” will be happy to learn that the song appears on Aura. A representative for Ozuna confirms that there’s another joint track with the Invasion of Privacy star in the works as well.
The Puerto Rican reggaetonero also revealed some of the full-length’s other features, which include Romeo Santos, Akon, and viral Latin trap star Anuel AA. According to Ozuna, Akon delivers a verse in Spanish on a track called “Coméntale.” “When we got together, we did four songs: There’s one for his album and two for the future,” Ozuna explained in the interview. “He sang in English, he sang in Spanish, I sang in English. He doesn’t speak it perfectly, just as I don’t speak perfect English, but we understand each other.” The interview also reveals that the Romeo Santos collaboration is titled “Ibiza,” and it was recorded on Monday, just five days before the album’s release.
Meanwhile, Ozuna says his close friend and collaborator Anuel AA, who was released from federal prison on weapons charges in July, appears on the album three times (the pair have released numerous collaborations together, including a joint track on Anuel’s surprise full-length Real Hasta La Muerte).
This list of features falls in line with Ozuna’s collaborative past; in recent months, he has worked with Tory Lanez, Jennifer Lopez, and more.
