Puerto Rican reggaeton singer Daddy Yankee had to receive medical attention at a Santo Domingo clinic because of a severe drop in his blood sugar level, he said Friday in a statement.

The reggaeton star, who was in the Dominican capital to promote his latest disc, “Prestige,” was struck by the illness on Thursday during a session of interviews, after he had already spoken with close to a score of media outlets.

“I had one of the strongest attacks of hypoglycemia that I’ve had yet. My blood pressure went up and I felt bad. That happens to me when I’m working a lot and don’t eat enough. But now I feel fine,” said the artist, who was scheduled to return to Puerto Rico on Friday.

Daddy Yankee, who last week topped the Billboard Latin Albums chart with “Prestige,” thanked Dr. Hernan Gonzalez and his staff for the attention he received, as well as the media for their understanding when his illness kept him from meeting with them.
