Ozuna collaborated along with fellow reggaeton singer Natti Natasha on ‘Criminal’. The song’s video is the most successful to date in the Puerto Rican artist’s career with 1,739,001,918 views on the video-sharing site
An appearance on the 2018 spring hit ‘Te Bote Remix’ featuring Casper, Nio García, Darell, Nicky Jam and Bad Bunny whipped up 1,621,040,353 views on YouTube.
Since becoming a household name all over Latin America in 2014, Ozuna found a way to immerse himself in the American mainstream scene with collaborations featuring rapper Cardi B, Selena Gomez and DJ Snake in their hit Taki Taki.
The video has drawn 1,019,441,056 views since going live in early October 2018.
Ozuna has also definitely benefited from the wave Latin music rode in 2018 after surpassing country music and EDM in consumption, becoming the fifth-biggest genre in the United States.
The chart-breaking news comes at a time married father-of-two was embroiled in a scandal.
Ozuna broke his silence in late January and announced that he was extorted by slain gay trap star Kevin Fret who threatened to release an explicit video of the star.
A video of the singer, credited as J-Ox, circulating online is believed to be from the 2011 gay porn film New York Sex Chronicles, which shows Ozuna- then 19 – masturbating alone.
The video jumps to scenes of two to three other men engaging in sexual acts.
Ozuna himself is not seen with any other men, which the singer’s team suggests was edited in a way to make it appear as if he was actively involved in gay porn.
Ozuna’s 2017 debut album, ‘Odisea’ [‘Odyssey’] spent over 30 weeks at number one on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums listing, breaking the record once held by Mariah Carey’s ex-husband, Luis Miguel, whose ‘Segundo Romance’ [‘Second Romance’] last a record 29 weeks.
