Ozuna’s rise to the top of the music industry has been lightening fast. He ascended from nowhere to the top of reggaeton and trap music internationally. A lot of his success can be traced to his following on You Tube, where his view numbers are off the charts. The Puertorriqueno’s success from his first two albums, Odisea (2017) and Aura (2018), has landed him in the Guiness Book of World Records. Here are the additional accomplishments Ozuma has earned in his short career:
  • Male artist with the most weeks at number one on Billboard‘s Top Latin Albums chart – Odisea, which logged 46 non-consecutive weeks from September 2017 tthru 1 September 2018.
  • Most Billboard Latin Music Award wins for a single artist in a single year – 11 awards.
  • Most Billboard Latin Music Award nominations for a single artist in a single year – 23 nominations
  • Artist with the most video views on YouTube – one billion
Ozuna is only 27 years old. When considering the fact that Daddy Yankee, the consensus king of reggaeton, is 42 years old, Ozuna still has a lot of career left to leave his mark. He’s most known stateside for his feature role on ‘Taki Taki’, a song which includes Cardi B and Selena Gomez among other big time artists. Ozuna sold out his U.S. tour this past year and is expected to release his next album before the end of 2019.

Disney and Pixar announced that Jamie Foxx will be the lead actor in its film Soul, scheduled for release in June 2020.  It’s the first time an African American has played a lead role in a Pixar animation.

The film synopsis asks, “Ever wonder where your passion, your dreams and your interests come from? What is it that makes you … you?  Soul takes you on a journey from the streets of New York City to the cosmic realms to discover the answers to life’s most important questions.”

Joe Gardner (played by Foxx) is a middle school band director and a jazz lover. After several attempts Gardner finally gets accepted to play at a highly regarded New York City jazz club, only to die shortly after. That’s just the beginning.  The rest takes place when his soul goes on to the lands beyond and he meets up with other souls up above.

Several clips have been released through the Walt Disney Studio Twitter account.
