Puerto Rican reggaeton sensation Yandel, of Wisin y Yandel, was hospitalized after a freak accident in Mexico last week. 

The Boricua, who serves as a judge on La Voz Mexico, was involved in a four-wheeler accident in Valle de Bravo, Mexico while shooting scenes for the reality singing competition. 

According to Latin Times, the singer, whose real name is Llandel Veguilla Malavé, lost control in a curve and his vehicle flipped over. He was rushed to a local hospital, where he remains in "stable condition." Doctors said he had a few bruises, but will make a full recovery.

Since the accident, fans of Wisin y Yandel have sent the frontman well wishes and prayers over Twitter. Wisin even tweeted out his thanks for the well wishes. "Thank God @llandel_malave is alright!" he posted in Spanish. "Thanks for your concern and kindness! Blessings to all!"
