Aura is the second studio album by Puerto Rican reggaeton artist Ozuna.[4] It was released on August 24, 2018 through VP Records, Dimelo VI Distribution and Sony Music Latin. It features collaborations with J Balvin, Akon, Cardi B, and Romeo Santos.[5] The album was preceded by the singles "La Modelo" and "Única",[6] the latter of which is also remixed on the album in a version featuring Anuel AA and Wisin & Yandel.[6]

Ozuna is currently on the 29-date Aura Tour across the United States in support of the album, which began on September 7 in Atlanta.[7]

Rolling Stone4/5 stars[8]

Writing for Rolling Stone, Elias Leight called Aura "a step beyond the reggaeton and trap that Ozuna is known for" and highlighted several tracks that compare to the "insta-classics" from Odisea, saying "'Besos Mojados,' a collaboration with veterans RKM & Ken-Y on which Ken-Y threatens to out-sing Ozuna, and 'Ibiza,' which appears to get prettier every time it gets played. [... And t]rap-heads will be pleased with 'Pasado y Presente,' a magnetic collaboration with Latin trap forefather Anuel AA".[8] In conclusion, Leight stated that "Aura has just one weakness — at 20 songs, it's more drawn out than it needs to be. But with an inventive singer like Ozuna at the helm, even when Aura drags, it never loses its buoyancy for long."[8]

Commercial performance[edit]

Aura debuted at number seven on the US Billboard 200 with 49,000 album-equivalent units (including 7,000 pure album sales).[9] It is the biggest sales week of 2018 for a Latin album.[9]
