The 35-year-old singer took to his Instagram page to share the news in a clip which he captioned: “Down but not out! Stay safe y’all! Wear your mask. Wash your hands. ￼”
In the clip, the “Bottoms Up” singer said: “I’ve taken many tests as I’ve been out protesting, food drives,’ he said. ‘Of course, I have a very young son at home so I get tested periodically and this time unfortunately it came back positive.”
He added that he will be “taking it seriously” and self-quarantining in his house until he sees a “negative sign”. He noted that 7.5 million Americans have contracted the virus, and that “one out of 1000 Black people have died from it.”
Trey Songz revealed that his grandfather passed away earlier in the year and while it wasn’t revealed that coronavirus was the cause of his death, he believes it to be so.
Advising his fans, he said: “If you come in contact with COVID, please do the same, please do the same – don’t be like the president.”
