Ozuna Joins Billboard Latin Music Week for Live 'Making the Hits' Session

BB26 2017 - DO NOT REUSE
Pablo Diaz

This week, Ozuna’s debut album, Odisea, became the longest-running set by a male artist at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart. It’s a huge achievement by a brand-new artist who has managed to place hit after hit on Billboard’s charts.

Now, Ozuna will show exactly how he crafts those hits during a one-of-a-kind panel during Billboard Latin Music Week in Las Vegas.

Ozuna will sit down with his producers, Yampi and Hi Flow, during Latin Music Week, April 23-26, for a  “Making the Hits, Live” panel, where he will demonstrate how he has written and produced his hits (to register, click here: http://billboardlatinconference.com). The 30-minute panel will take place Tuesday, April 24, at The Venetian in Las Vegas and will cover some of Ozuna’s top hits, including "La Modelo," which features Cardi B, and "Se Preparo," giving insight into how a song earns a place on the charts.

“Ozuna made history this week when his debut album Odisea became the longest-running album by a male artist at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart,” said Leila Cobo, Executive Director, Latin Content and Programing at Billboard. “He is a phenomenon with a huge future. We are thrilled to have him, Yampi and Hi Flow join the conference this year to give the audience an exclusive understanding of how hits are produced and made.”

The “Making the Hits, Live” panel is the latest addition to previously announced panels, including “The Rock Star Q&A" with Latin superstars Fher Olvera and Alex Gonzalez of Maná, the one-on-one “Star Q&A” with Colombian superstar Maluma, a Q&A with Bad Bunny and many more. Billboard’s annual Latin Music Week will take place April 23-26 at The Venetian in Las Vegas. The event proves to be the largest gathering boasting the biggest and brightest names in the Latin music industry and culminates with the Billboard Latin Music Awards, airing live on the Telemundo network April 26.
