President Trump and first lady Melania Trump weren’t the only ones impacted by COVID-19 this week. “Mr. Steal Your Girl” himself is also “down, but not out” with the virus.

“Here with a very important message to let you know I tested positive for COVID-19,” he shared on his Instagram page. “I’ve taken many tests as I’ve been out protesting, food drives, of course I have a very young son at home, so I get tested periodically and this time it unfortunately came back positive.”

“I will be taking it seriously,” he continued, after noting 1/1000 Black people have died from the virus. “I will be self-quarantining, I will be in my house until I see a negative sign.”

The singer, whose album Back Home drops this week, shared that he lost his grandfather earlier this year. Although his cause of death wasn’t cited as COVID-19, he believes the coronavirus was at hand.

“If you come in contact with Covid, please do say,” he pleaded. “Please do say. Don’t be like the president.”
