Ozuna Tells Apple Music About Collaborating With Latin Artists Spanning Generations on His New Album ‘ENOC’…

For me it’s blessed. It’s my school. Daddy Yankee, when you see Nicky Jam, Yandel, you know the old guys. Guys have time in this general…for me, it’s so hard. It’s like an honor for me to work with these guys. For me, it’s my school. To my guy I say, “Yo, look there.” Nicky say “Yo, I don’t like that. You can put that in this other part. Change that.” And I’ll say “Daddy Yankee, what’s popping? I got this song. This money.” He said “Yo, let’s go.” So for me, it’s my family. I got like good relationship with the old guys and new guys, too. Because for me, it’s like the collab I got off of the tour. So I think…I got the best moment and the best relationship with the old guys, new guys, and everything in the generation.

Ozuna Tells Apple Music About Collaborating With Sia and Doja Cat on “Del Mar”…

It’s God for me because in two, three days I have the song. I say, “Yo, today I’m doing a song, the money, the album.” I say, yo, my lawyer, I’m say to him, “I have this song. Check if you can get Doja Cat.” And I’ve got ”Del Mar, another friend, Dizzy, and I say “Dizzy, check if you got Doja Cat” because I see Doja Cat’s delivery and everything she’s doing. I said, “Yo, wow, this is the next star. The last two years I’m doing with Cardi B in La Modelo. I say, “Yo, that girl is so hard.” So when this time, for me, she’s the best rapper woman and pop woman in the global. He said, yes. He say, I’ll find you. I’m saying I love the song. And I say, “Whoa.” It’s crazy for me because I found you. I’m saying Doja is the best in the moment. And I’m saying, let’s do it in the song and gave me the vocal in one day. I’m saying to Sia, “Sia, you like?” Because Doja talk a little hard in the song, you know? The verse is so hard. And you know Sia is a little bit commercial and different something. She said “Yo, I like it.” But for me, like I say, it’s crazy because in two, three day you don’t have this combination on one song.
