Last year, Apple Music’s global radio station Beats 1 did us all a favor and launched Trap Kingz, its first Spanish-language show dedicated to chronicling the development and evolution of trap en español. They recruited golden boy Bad Bunny to host the first six episodes and share his take on the movement.

On Saturday, Trap Kingz continues with a new episode, this time hosted by Ozuna, the Puerto Rican rapper with a soft side (and even softer vocals). He’ll be taking listeners behind the scenes of his recent songs, which include collaborations with Romeo Santos and Cardi B. Plus, it looks like he’ll premiere a remix of “Ahora Dice” on the show — the new song features Cardi again, as well as fellow Puerto Rican trapero Anuel AA.

In a preview of the episode, Ozuna dives into how he started working with Romeo. If you remember, Santos roped Ozuna in for “Sobredosis” on his last album Golden, and Ozuna recently debuted a remix of his song “El Farsante” featuring the bachatero. Ozuna reveals that Romeo loved “El Farsante,” and wanted to jump on the track. He also says that getting to work together was a “blessing.”

“While we were filming the video of ‘Sobredosis,’ [Santos] said that this was his favorite song: ‘I feel that I can relate to it, wow, wow, I love it so much,’” Ozuna said. “I told him, ‘If you really like this song, why don’t you do the remix?’ He said to me, ‘Yo, that will be a great opportunity for me, send me everything.’ And I sent him everything and right away he sent me back everything.”

Sounds like a bromance made in high-pitched heaven. We’re looking forward to what else Ozuna will spill, and eager to see whose songs he’ll spin on the episode.

The show airs Saturday, February 10 at 6 p.m. PST, and there’s a replay scheduled on Sunday, February 11 at 9 p.m. PST. Listen live for free here.
