The 35-year-old singer took to his social media pages on Monday night October 5, to announce that he had contracted the deadly COVID-19 virus in a post he shared on his Instagram page.

“Herewith a very important message to let you know I tested positive for COVID-19,” he shared. “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.”

The Bottoms Up singer said he ‘will be taking it seriously’ and ‘self-quarantining … until he sees a negative sign.’

“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.”

He also noted that 7.5 million Americans have contracted the virus, and that ‘one out of 1000 Black people have died from it. Trey Songz went further to note that his granddad who died earlier in the year though it wasn’t confirmed if it was COVID-19 induced or caused, he says he suspects his grandfather died of it.

Songz said; ‘My grandfather passed away early this year and while it wasn’t said that it was COVID, I do believe it was; so, I’ve always taken it seriously.’

He advised his fans, ‘If you come in contact with COVID, please do the same, please do the same – don’t be like the president.’
