Ozuna Says He Didn't Believe That Cardi B Wanted to Meet Him

To have 30 songs on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart in less than two years is a difficult feat to achieve. But Ozuna broke the rules and made it happen. And he talked all about how he made it happen during the Ozuna, Making Hits, Live panel at the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Conference.

During the panel, which also featured producers Hi Flow and Yampi, Ozuna discussed how the hits “Tu Foto” and “La Modelo” were born. "I remember that for 'La Modelo,' Ozuna said, 'This song needs Cardi B’s voice,'" Hi Flow recalled. And at that moment, Ozuna remembered how he met Cardi B.

"My manager told me that Cardi B wanted to meet me and I said, 'You can’t be believing everyone who calls you,'" Ozuna said. “But at the end, I met her and she actually told me that she wanted to collaborate with me eventually," he added.
