Drake took to Instagram Stories Monday (Aug. 1) to announce he had “tested positive for COVID,” and that “the Young Money Reunion show is being rescheduled to the SOONEST date possible.”
Drake told fans, “I am truly devastated."
The news comes mere hours before Drake was set to storm the stage alongside Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj for the final night of October World Weekend.
He added, “I love you all and I am so sorry for letting you down on our weekend together and the moment I test negative I will give you everything I got on stage (except the Covid)."
The first two nights of October World Weekend delighted Toronto fans with sets from Canadian music icons, performances from Chris Brown and Lil Baby, and a surprise appearance from Nelly Furtado. Drake even joined the “Promiscuous” singer onstage to perform her smash hit “I’m Like a Bird.”
