Drake does not have the coronavirus.
The 6 God revealed that he was tested for COVID-19 and his results came back negative. During an Instagram Live session with his father Dennis Graham on Friday night, Drake said that he took a test earlier in the week.
“You know I had to do a test the other day,” Drake told his dad, adding, “But it came back negative though.”
He went on to reveal the painful testing procedure. “That test was uncomfortable though. They put that Q-tip all the way inside your thoughts.”
Drake was tested after Kevin Durant tested positive for coronavirus. The rapper and Brooklyn Nets star were seen hanging out at West Hollywood hotspot The Nice Guy shortly before Durant’s diagnosis. Since then, Drake has been in self-isolation at his Toronto mansion.
He reflected on his quarantine experience and how it’s put things in perspective. “This is like a moment in history that we’ll probably never get back again, a moment where you get to be by yourself or be with your loved ones or just check in with people,” he said during the livestream. “It makes you really realize what kind of routine we get so accustomed to where it starts to just coast and sail by. The days just start flying and flying. And now we have this thing that’s making us just wanna call each other, be face to face, show some love.”
At one point during the Live, Dennis gave out his personal email address and he and his son took shots together. “Me and you don’t so this enough so it’s nice just to be having a drink with all the people in the world,” said Drake.
