Ozuna and Anuel AA, “Cambio”

Separately, Ozuna and Anuel AA have gone through difficult situations, giving them good reason to join forces and work on a new song called “Cambio,” released Tuesday afternoon (June 25).

The new single is divided into two parts. First, it starts as a trap song in which Ozuna and Anuel send a clear message through a lyric that talks about the people from the past who approach them because they have fame and money. But suddenly, the song takes an unexpected turn and becomes a danceable reggaeton tune that leaves behind all drama and describes how they enjoy life.

“It’s always a pleasure to work with my bro, Anuel,” Ozuna tells Billboard. “Cambio was born from our personal experiences and today we turn it into music for all our fans.”
