R&B star Trey Songz has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The 35-year-old crooner revealed his diagnosis in a video on his Instagram page: "Here with a very important message to let you know I tested positive for COVID-19," he said.

"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."

Noting that 1/1000 Black people have died from the virus, and revealing that he believes Covid-19 was the cause of his grandfather's death earlier this year, Trey continued: "I will be taking it seriously. I will be self-quarantining, I will be in my house until I see a negative [test]."

Trey wore a black sweatshirt with the words "Black Lives Matter" printed on the front.

The 35-year-old Sagittarius concluded his video by telling his followers to speak out if they come into contact with the virus, saying: "If you come in contact with Covid, please do say. Please do say. Don't be like the president."

President Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19 on Friday, Oct. 2. Democrats lashed out at the President for removing his mask on the White House balcony after he arrived home from Walter Reed Medical Center on Monday.

The "Bottoms Up" singer captioned his video: "Down but not out! Stay safe y’all! Wear your mask. Wash your hands."
