“Nos vamos a levantar. Yo se que sí.”

As a dedication to the genre of Reggaeton music and to the people of Puerto Rico, Ozuna just recently released a new YouTube documentary titled, “Música Sin Fronteras.” In this short-film documentary, Ozuna reveals an array of clips from his concert in Puerto Rico that took place on the 15th and 16th of September – just a few days before Puerto Rico was hit by hurricane Maria on September 20th.

Despite the damage the hurricane has caused, Ozuna hopes that Puerto Rico will rise and will grow stronger, just like he did. Growing up in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Ozuna and his family struggled with poverty after losing his father at a young age. There were moments when he and his family were hungry, and times when they would have no power and the water would get cut off, but Ozuna learned how to grow and survive without depending on anyone. The only thing he depended on was his music.

Ozuna believes that now is the time for the genre of Reggaeton music to rise and shine.

The release and major success of ‘Despacito’ by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee opened the door for many Latino artists. And now, more than ever, is the time for Reggaeton music to rise to the top. Just like every genre of music has its moment in time, Ozuna believes that we are currently living in the era of Reggaeton. However, Ozuna expresses in his documentary that he’s not concerned about the money and the #1 hits, but about the message his music sends to his audience.

As he talks about his music, Ozuna emphasizes, “Lo que tú digas, tú lo vas a manejar. Y eso es lo mas importante.”

Ozuna recognizes that having a huge fan base comes with huge responsibility. Whatever your music is saying, your audience is listening, which is why the content of his music is very special to him. Rather than making his music about guns or money, Ozuna writes his music as if he was writing to a little toy bear, which is the logo you see on all of his work. To Ozuna, the sentiment of his music is what’s most important and he hopes this sentiment touches the people in Puerto Rico and all his fans across the world. ❤️?
