2019 was simply Ozuna’s year. The Puerto Rican crooner garnered four Guinness world records including most weeks spent atop the Billboard Latin albums chart as well as the artiste with the most videos to reach one billion views on YouTube. The singer also made it to Time Magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world, joining the likes of Michelle Obama, Dwayne Johnson, and Taylor Swift. Through his musical prowess, Ozuna has made fortune in his career and his net worth currently runs in millions of dollars.
Born as Juan Carlos Ozuna Rosado in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the singer first came into this world on the 13th day of March 1993. His mother, Yomary Rosado Marrero, is Puerto Rican while his father was from the Dominican Republic. Sadly, Ozuna lost his dad when he was just a child and as a result, he grew up with his paternal grandparents. Having spent his formative years in Puerto Rico, the young Ozuna dabbled into music at the age of 12.
While pursuing his passion and also looking for better opportunities, the singer decided to move to the United States of America in 2010. There, he spent three years in New York City before returning to Puerto Rico in 2013. He continued working on his music and started posting his songs online. These tracks became modest hits and Ozuna was soon tapped to feature on the songs of several popular artists. Today, he has become one of the sought after Puerto Rican music stars and has made huge wealth for himself. So, what has Ozuna got to show for all his exploits, what is his net worth and how did he make his fortune?

Ozuna has a net worth running into millions of dollars. While some sources say he is worth as much as $15 million, others estimate Ozuna’s net worth at $3 million.

Commercially, Aura topped the Billboard Latin albums chart and reached number 7 on the US Billboard 200 chart. It has also got a diamond certification, meaning that it sold millions of copies as well. The proceeds of these sales have furthered increased Ozuna’s net worth.
