As Jim Jones announced Monday he’s recovering from COVID-19, Drake also revealed that he contracted the virus.

When a follower commented on the Instagram fan account @drizzy_drake_vids, “That heart is stressed,” referring to his signature hairline, Champagne Papi replied, “I had Covid.” He added about his uneven hairline, “[It] grew in weird. I had to start again,” with a cry-laughing emoji. “It’s coming back don’t diss.”

Recovering from COVID-19 may be one of the reasons for the delay of the four-time Grammy winner’s sixth studio album, Certified Lover Boy. After being originally scheduled for release in January, it was rescheduled for June, but fans are still waiting.

Drake did drop a three-song EP, Scary Hours 2, in March. Last August, he released the first and, so far, only single from Certified Lover Boy, titled “Laugh Now Cry Later.” CLB will be the follow-up to his last studio album, 2018’s Scorpion, which is RIAA-certified five-times Platinum.

As previously reported, Jones revealed Monday on Instagram that he had COVID-19. However he recently tested negative and shared that he’s feeling better.
