Ozuna the MLB player was traded to the Cardinals and the only question you should be asking is if he’ll walk up to Ozuna the Latin trap star.
Good afternoon, it’s come to my attention that there is a Major League Baseball player named Marcell Ozuna. I found this out because the Miami Marlins traded the left fielder to the St. Louis Cardinals, according to ESPN and as first reported by SiriusXM. The deal is pending a physical.
You may have heard this and wondered what the Cardinals gave up. (It hasn’t been announced.) I heard this and wondered whether Ozuna walks up to Ozuna’s music.
The MLB, helpfully, provides the ballpark music for all their teams. Yonder on the Marlins page, I discovered the Dominican baseball player does not feature the music of the Puerto Rican musician with whom he shares a name. I also learned that a) he appears to prefer Latin music more firmly in the hip-hop and rap genre and b) his now-former teammate Miguel Rojas does enjoy Ozuna as one of his walk-up songs (“El Farsante,” if you’re curious). Rojas definitely appears to love himself some reggaeton, also featuring J. Balvin and Maluma. (Interestingly, he also plays Drake, but not Drake’s most famous reggaeton collab, “Odio,” with Romeo Santos. I digress.)
No one on the Cardinals plays Ozuna, though Yadier Molina does play “Armao 100pre Andamos (Remix)” by Anuel AA. Ozuna features on an Anuel AA remix, “Soldado y Profeta.” While that is a different song, it does indicate the possibility that Ozuna could once again play in a ballpark playing Ozuna.
However, as to the matter at hand: Is Ozuna a fan of Ozuna? That seems like a no. (It’s okay, Ozuna still has Cardi B. Ooh. Ozuna. Cards. Ozuna. Cardi B. There’s something there.)
Still, both Marcell Ozuna Idelfonso and Juan Carlos Ozuna Rosado had the hits in 2017.
ESPN tells me Ozuna the baseball player is “coming off a career-best season, setting personal bests with a .312 batting average, 37 home runs and 124 RBIs, which ranked third in the National League.” Elsewhere, Ozuna the musician is establishing himself as the biggest reggaeton star of his generation, with his debut album No. 1 on the Latin charts.
May they battle for Ozuna Google search supremacy forevermore.
