By the time Ozuna released his debut album, Odisea, on Aug. 25, he had placed eight singles simultaneously on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart. Only two other acts -- Joan Sebastian and Juan Gabriel, who have both passed away -- have had more songs chart at the same time.
The magnitude of the feat isn’t lost on the 25-year-old Puerto Rican star who, far from penning simply feel-good dance tracks, has focused on, “from day one, writing songs people could identify with.”
The music speaks for itself. Odisea is a storyteller’s album from the very first track. On the album opening title track, Ozuna tells the story of his father being shot dead when the singer was only 3 years old.
