Zion's real name is Felix Ortiz and the name of his companion is Lennox Gabriel Pizarro. They were born in Carolina, Puerto Rico. They were neighbors as children and shared their enthusiasm for rap, Hip Hop and Dance Hall.

Own reggaeton style
The repeated success of Zion y Lennox contributed to their enormous professional, personal and creative progress. Zion y Lennox are now on the global level of reggaeton and the demand of their fans is overwhelming. Their first production received numerous awards.
The music of Zion y Lennox distinguishes them from other performers mostly because it is not dominated by such themes as sex or party, that otherwise seem to be pretty common in reggaeton.
After sharing four years of reggaeton career, Zion y Lennox decided to go their separate ways. In the meantime, Zion is working on his solo career.
