Zion from the reggaeton duo Zion & Lennox has been hospitalized. Billboard can confirm that the Puerto Rican singer was taken to a local hospital upon his arrival in Mexico City.

“We ask for a prayer chain for our brother @zion, for God to be in control and that everything goes well,” read a caption posted in the duo’s official Instagram account. The photo, posted in the wee hours of Wednesday morning (March 4), shows Zion in a hospital bed surrounded by medical workers.

An official statement was released Wednesday evening.

"Last ​night while in flight en route to Mexico City, Zion member of the iconic duo Zion & Lennox, began to feel extensive pain in the torso area and requested medical attention upon landing. ​ Once arrived ​ he was taken to the ABC Medical Center Hospital(Centro Médico ABC) in Mexico City where he was thoroughly examined and tested for multiple symptoms he incurred. Doctors determined after all tests came back and by process of elimination, that this was all a combination of physical exhaustion, fatigue and stress from travel 16 days in a row and having very little rest. ​ Zion, Lennox and the rest of their team at this time would like to thank everyone for their concern, outreach and he wants to let fans know he is going to be ok," it expressed.

The duo is set to celebrate its 20-year anniversary with a U.S. tour dubbed Iconic Tour Twenty 20, set to kick off May 15 at The Forum in Los Angeles.

Zion & Lennox are finalists at the 2020 Billboard Latin American Music Awards, up for Latin rhythm artist of the year, duo or group, alongside Jowell & Randy, Wisin & Yandel and CNCO. The awards show will air live April 23 on Telemundo, following the three-day event and panel series LatinFest+ presented by Billboard and Telemundo in Las Vegas.
