Insulating an OSB sheated wall


I have an insulated metal building with no climate control. I'm sectioning off a portion of the building and will install a window unit to keep that area cool. The wall will be 2x4 studs sheated with 7/16th OSB on both sides. I didn't plan on painting the wall or doing anything else to it.I live in South Louisiana. What is the best way to insulate the wall?

You are trying to keep the heat out?
It rather depends on what you are trying to achieve.
At a minimum glue 4 inch thick sheets of polystyrene over the outside (on the hot side).
