Like the majority of his tracks, DJ Snake‘s “Taki Taki” featuring Selena Gomez, Cardi B, and Ozuna has received heavy play from DJs. (It was DJcity’s most downloaded track of October.)

Peaking at No. 11 on Billboard’s Hot 100, the track has also become the French superstar’s highest-charting single since “Let Me Love You” featuring Justin Bieber.

A bilingual track, “Taki Taki” is the latest Spanglish or Spanish-language single to appear on the Hot 100, a feat that has become more common since Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee‘s groundbreaking smash, “Despacito.”

Below is a list of our favorite remixes, bootlegs, and edits of “Taki Taki” so far.

Ozuna Talks New Album ‘Aura,’ Akon Collab, Cardi B, and More

As he prepares to drop his new album Aura on Friday (Aug. 24), Latin superstar Ozuna sat down with Billboard for an interview.

The Puerto Rican artist discussed many topics, including revealing that the project contains a Spanish-language track with Akon. He also confirmed that his Cardi B-assisted hit single “La Modelo” will appear on Aura.

Other topics covered include why he likes to collaborate often, his relationship with J Balvin, and the pressure of topping his record-breaking debut album, Odisea. Released in August 2017, Odisea is currently in its 45th week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart.

Working with Akon:

“Working with someone who shares your vision, your work ethic, and who likes to create as you do makes it easy. When we got together, we made four songs in one day. There’s one song for his album and two for a future release. Yes, he sang in Spanish, and I even sang in English. He doesn’t speak perfect Spanish, and I don’t speak perfect English, but we understand each other.”

His relationship with J Balvin:

“He’s an extremely important person to me. I value his opinion and his presence in my projects. He has an impressive aura about him, he’s brilliant and intelligent, and he puts his heart into his work. He’s someone who always gives it his all. I can ask him for advice even when it’s not his song, and he’ll tell me what to fix.”

Why he likes to collaborate often:

“I like it because it’s like being in a group. Working with people like Reik, Anuel AA, Wisin & Yandel, and J Balvin, you get to do things like film videos. So we enjoy it because that’s where we can be free to be ourselves, talk, and create. I can’t walk down the streets of Miami without getting mobbed, for example. But I can be on set with Balvin and Arcangel and feel comfortable.”

Topping his debut album:

“It wasn’t about doing something bigger or better. I don’t like to proclaim things like saying it will be better because it might or it might not. It’s just that nowadays, people demand a lot more music. It’s not how it used to be when you didn’t need to put out so much music. But I’ve learned that each week, there are new sounds, new rhythms, new technology, new artists, and you have to evolve. Odisea made an impact, but the people want more music.”

Puerto Rican rapper Anuel AA has shared the video for his Ozuna-assisted Latin trap single, “Brindemos.” The neon-lit visual finds both artists performing in front of luxury cars and beautiful women.

Released in mid-July, “Brindemos” currently sits at No. 19 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart and has amassed over six million streams on Spotify. It is the lead single from Anuel’s latest album, Real Hasta La Muerte, which is currently in its second week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart.

Anuel AA is widely considered as one of the leading figures of the rising Latin trap movement. He released his album by surprise on July 17, hours before he was released from prison where he had spent 30 months on gun possession charges. In his first interview since being out, Anuel told Billboard that the majority of the album was recorded during his time behind bars.

Latin music’s popularity is at an all-time high thanks in part to artists like Bad Bunny, Maluma, and Pitbull. They, along with other Latin stars, have topped charts and sold out shows in record numbers all over the world over the past year.

Now, they’ve all gathered together in Las Vegas for the 29th annual Billboard Latin Music Week. The event, which ends Thursday night with the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards, began Monday with a three-day conference.

Among the festivities at the conference was a series of individual Q&A and panel interviews with the top artists, producers, and executives in the game. Topics included a look back at the past year, how collaborations came together, and future projects.

We put together some of the best Q&As below, most of which were conducted in Spanish. The list includes interviews by the aforementioned Bad Bunny, Maluma, and Pitbull as well as Ozuna, Maná, and songwriter Descemer Bueno.
