SINGJAY Anthony B was released from the Methodist Dallas Medical Centre in Texas yesterday.

He was admitted there last Saturday after collapsing during a performance at a Dallas nightclub.

According to his publicist, Ronnie Tomlinson, he was suffering from dehydration and exhaustion.

"He is now resting and drinking lots of fluids, as per doctors orders," Tomlinson said in an e-mail response to the Jamaica Observer.

"Thanks to all my fans who said a prayer for the I," Anthony B said in a statement.

As he recuperates, he will reschedule dates for his upcoming European tour, Tomlinson said.

The opening show was booked for the United Kingdom tomorrow.

Anthony B (real name Keith Anthony Blair) burst onto the music scene in 1996 with the song Fire Pon Rome for producer Richard Bell's Startrail label.

Bell also produced his follow-up hit, Raid the Barn. He is one of the best touring acts in contemporary reggae.
