When the talk is about the famous singers in Puerto Rico, then the Si No Te Quiere crooner Ozuna deserves a mention. The dude has earned unprecedented fame and popularity in recent times with a record of several hit songs under his belt. Despite his unpleasant childhood, Juan Carlos “Ozuna” Rosado, as his given name says, was able to overcome his shortcomings and pick courage to make something out of his life from the age of 12 when he began writing songs.
He was still in his early teens when the talented singer dropped his first song titled Imaginando and was later signed by Golden Family Records, in addition to releasing several songs on YouTube. Some of his hit tracks like No Quiere Enamorarse and Si No Te Quiere have become incredibly successful. The success he enjoys now makes it hard to believe he comes from a difficult past.
His Early Years Were Riddled With Hardship
Ozuna was born to a Puerto Rican mother and Dominican father in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Growing up, he was surrounded by violence and poverty and the former claimed the life of his father when Ozuna was just a three-year-old. His father used to work as a dancer for Vico C, a reggaeton performer. He worked with the performer for a period of three years before a fatal gunshot claimed his life.
Subsequently, things became really hard for the family as Ozuna’s mother didn’t earn enough to sustain them. Things got worse by the day for the youngster but he soon found solace in music.
Ozuna Was Raised By His Paternal Grandmother
Even before he lost his dad, his grandmother played a pivotal role in his upbringing but took over full-time after the death of Ozuna’s dad. He consequently grew up in his grandmother’s home located above a bodega in San Juan. Living with her helped him grow spiritually as a Christian and she would always tell him that nothing comes for free, you have to work for whatever you need or want in life.
While his grandmother raised him, Ozuna’s uncle also played the role of a father to him and influenced his later interest in the kind of music he would come to be known for. In all, Ozuna didn’t let his troubled childhood stop his future from shining bright.
He Decided To Follow The Path Of Music At Age 12
Apart from his late father who worked as a dancer, Ozuna also has an uncle who would often play music by the likes of Daddy Yankee, De La Ghetto, and Don Omar to the delight of the youngster. These things hyped his interest in music. Subsequently, he decided to make the most of the burning passion he had developed for music by declaring his intentions to pursue a career in the field.
He was 12 at the time and to support him, his uncle gifted him a microphone which he used to rap along whenever he’s playing music. At the budding stage of his career, he performed at a local bar called El Corozal before moving to Washington Heights in Manhattan, New York, in order to get away from the life of violence in his hometown.
While in New York, he made his debut video on a budget less than $100, as well as learned how to produce and promote his own music. Armed with enough knowledge to take the industry by storm, Ozuna decided to move back home as he saw the Washington Heights was equally violent. He moved back with his wife and kids.
Ozuna Is A Happily Married Man
