Ozuna’s new single, “Tu Foto,” sounds like a breakup song dedicated to an ex, but the music video reveals that it’s about a much bigger issue – addiction.
Right away, the video opens up with a very touching message from Ozuna, as he gently says,
“La vida tiene un solo destino: morir… Dale valor a cada momento. El tiempo que se va, no regresa. El relo nunca para. Cada hora tiene un valor… Nunca permites que el vicio, con tu alma acabe.”
With this message in mind, the video takes you through the narratives of three different relationships: the first one about a mother and her daughter, the second about a boyfriend and his girlfriend, and the third about a son and his little brother – all of which have one thing in common: addiction. Unfortunately, it’s because of their addictions that their loved ones are negatively affected in the long run.
The music video for “Tu Foto” concludes with this message:
“Todo el que se sienta amo de sus vicios, arrastrará al mismo destino a quien tenga a su camino.”

Bad Bunny had an exceptional 2019.

The singer teamed up with Maluma to create “Qué Pena” and we spent most of last year jamming out to that single. Balvin is in tied in second place with Daddy Yankee with 12 nominations.

President Obama has become a strong and lasting pop culture figure. He is often referenced in tv shows. movies, late-night talk shows, and a myriad of other moments. He has even become a tastemaker in some pop culture rounds. Namely, Obama releases an annual list of favorite things in entertainment and pop culture. It is a list that people have come to expect and look forward to as Obama has often highlighted the most influential people of the year. This year’s list is no different and there were some notable Latino additions to the list that people definitely paid attention to.
Former President Barack Obama released his culture list of 2019, and he included some of our favorite Latino creatives.

Obama’s recommendation lists have been a part of our lives since he began his presidency. Every year, he releases a list of his favorite books, music, and movies, and we’re always so excited because he typically is into things that we’re into as well. Not just that, but he also turns us onto new creatives because if he’s into it, we know for a fact it’s good.
Oh, the music front, Obama did not disappoint. His favorite music of 2019 surprised many because while we know he has impeccable taste, we didn’t realize he could get down like that.
For starters, in 2019, Obama listened to “Baila Baila Baila” by Ozuna featuring Daddy Yankee, J Balvin, Farruko, Anuel AA.
We need a second to absorb this awesomeness. Not only does Obama give a list of entertainment to make your year better, he included one of the Latin music’s biggest bops of the year.
People could not get over the fact that Obama gets down to Ozuna just like we do.

We truly want to know who put Obama onto Ozuna. Was it his kids? Was it a friend? Maybe it was Michelle! We know she does love to dance. Way to go, Obama.
We see Obama in a whole new light now.
He was cool before, but now it’s on another level. We really love seeing the things that Obama enjoys.
Obama also listened to Angelica Garcia’s “Jícama”
The bilingual singer who’s based in Richmond, Virginia but was born in Cali and is of Mexican and Salvadoran descent got the break of a lifetime by getting a shoutout by the former president.
For those of you who don’t know her, now you know.

Garcia tweeted, “I am tearing up right now. My grandma has kept your picture on her piano for 5 years. Thank you for listening @BarackObama.” We’re tearing up now too!
Like the rest of the world, Obama could not resist Rosalía’s “Con Altura.”
Rosalía was undeniable on the culture hit list for 2019 and there’s no way Obama could avoid her. She was everywhere with her new music this year.
Obama surprised many with his choices this year, but his Latin music artist picks blew us away.

We stan Obama for life!
Now, on the movie front, Obama didn’t choose any Latin films. We know there were slim pickings, but we guess he didn’t watch “Knock Down the House” — the documentary about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s rise to Congress. Or “The Infiltrators” another powerful documentary about what it’s like to be detained by ICE. Perhaps that last film hits too close to home for the former president.
As for books, Obama chose some incredible reads, including Valeria Luiselli’s “Lost Children Archive.”

The Mexican writer tweeted that she was speechless over being on Obama’s list. She tweeted, “Happy, though of course bewildered, that @BarackObamaread Lost Children Archive. Curious about what, in those pages, spoke to him, and wondering what thoughts left an echo.” She also added that she wants Rep. Ocasio-Cortez to read her next book! “And now here’s a wish for 2020: that @AOCreads Tell Me How It Ends and pushes for some major reforms!” It’s all about envisioning to bring it to light!
Okay, now that we know Obama gets down as we do, we’re going to play some Ozuna now.
Thanks, Mr. Obama for reminding us why we love you and more importantly why we miss you even more!
