Ozuna drops a sweet treat with his new song, "Caramelo," releasing both the audio-only and the music video versions earlier Thursday, June 11.
The new song paints a fiery, mutual romance. "Caramelo," which translates to caramel or candy, hooks listeners with its chorus. "I tasted you again; your mouth doesn't lose the candy flavor. We get carried away, you're my bandit, and I'm your bandit." His signature reggaeton beats coats the sultry trap rapping, creating a dance floor hit.
The music video for "Caramelo" takes place in a colorful, candy-filled resort. It has an ice cream truck, cotton candy clouds, and candy-dispensers showering the dancers. The artist sits at the lifeguard's spot as big candies float around him. Billboard reports that Nuno Gomes directed the latest video. Gomes also helmed the music video for the artist's Siguelo Bailando in 2018.
An audio-only version is also available. It features the cover art for the single.
A Series of Tracks and Appearances
Last week, Scott Storch released "Fuego Del Calor." The Latin dance track featured Ozuna and Tyga on the verses. Storch, the American record producer, is also known as a former member of the hip-hop group the Roots.
The latest music video for "Caramelo" follows his previous reggaeton single "Temporal." His track, featuring Cultura Profetica frontman Willy Rodriguez, dropped two months ago.
Last April, the reggaeton singer was also featured in the Black Eyed Peas' latest single, "Mamacita." The track debuted BEP's latest vocalist, J Rey Soul. The black-Filipina singer is apl.de.ap's protege from the Philippine franchise of the "The Voice."
Last May 16, the Puerto Rican star also appeared in "Latinos Unidos." The virtual concert saw the reggaeton singer perform a 45-minute set. His backing band observed social distancing and wore facemasks. The live-streamed show is a part of "Latinos Unidos Live." The online concerts aim to raise funds for Covid-19 efforts across Latin America.
Ozuna in Quarantine
The 28-year-old artist took advantage of the quarantine to spend time with family. He posted a picture on Instagram with his son playing in the water. The father of two wrote: "Enjoy happiness even more now during these times in which life is hanging by a thread. Family is family."
Ozuna also keeps fans updated with TikTok. The artist's page is filled with wacky shots of him dancing and having fun with his family in a yacht.
In one video, Ozuna drinks from a cup and is surprised by the intro for "Mamacita." As the song sets in, he dances to the beat.
The New King of Reggaeton
Juan Carlos Ozuna Rosado is the Puerto Rican artist hailed as the "New King of Reggaeton." He first made his debut in music with "Imaginando" in 2012, under the name J. Oz.
His first album, "Odisea," was met with widespread critical and commercial success. It received a gold certification in Italy and 11X multi-platinum in the US. It also spawned the hits "Su Preparo" and "El Farsante."
He started with Odisea in 2017, followed by Aura in 2018 and Nibiru last year. All of his three studio albums sat at the top of the Billboard Latin Albums chart.
