Zion & Lennox are one of reggaeton's most recognizable duos. Felix Ortiz (Zion) and Gabriel Pizzaro (Lennox) grew up in Carolina, Puerto Rico, as neighbors. Discovering their shared interest in hip-hop, rap, and dancehall, Ortiz and Pizzaro began collaborating, and in the days of reggaeton's emergence found themselves increasingly drawn to the new genre, wide open and electric with potential. It was not long before the pair was offered opportunities to record, which opened doors to the compilation world, a common proving ground for new artists. The inclusion of their material on important compilations like Blin Blin, Vol. 1 and Mas Flow earned Zion & Lennox name recognition all over the reggaeton-listening world. "Te Hago el Amor" became an immediate hit across Puerto Rico and the U.S.
After three years of building their fan base and positive reputation with guest spots and compilation records, Zion & Lennox released their first full-length record, Motivando a la Yal. The record featured the work of renowned producers Luny Tunes, Noriega, Nelly, and Eliel, some of the most visible the style had to offer. Thanks to the record's success as it hit the charts with force, Zion & Lennox toured all over the Americas, performing before large and appreciative audiences. Soon industry demand and personal pressure caused Zion & Lennox to go in different directions. Boldly boasting to be one of the greatest singers ever to hail not only from Puerto Rico, but all of Latin America, Ortiz started his own record label, Baby Records, for whom he is the flagship act and CEO. Lennox continued to make guest appearances and collaborate with important genre artists. Although further releases appeared from the popular duo, they were not tied to one another until reuniting for 2016's Motivan2 album. In support, the pair commenced touring together again. ~ Evan C.
