Fans will have to wait a little longer for the Gods Plan rapper. On Monday, Drake confirmed that his set scheduled for October World Weekend has been postponed to a later date because he has been diagnosed with COVID-19. The iconic rapper took to Instagram to inform his fans about the situation as he posted a note addressing the delay in his stories.

In his Instagram story, Drake wrote, “I am truly devastated to say that I tested positive for COVID and the Young Money Reunion show scheduled for tonight is being rescheduled to the earliest possible date ” He continued, “I’ll keep posting the city and whenever we have a new date, I hope everyone is safe and healthy and I love you all, I hope you miss us on our weekend together.” So sorry to have to. The moment I test negative, I’ll give you everything I found on stage (except Covid),” per ET. The One Dance rapper signed off his message for his fans with a sad face emoji.
For those, who were especially excited to see the rapper, as he was expected to join Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne at the show to be held at Toronto’s Budweiser Stage. The concert was part of the October World Weekend, which had featured prominent performances from the All Canadian North Stars, Chris Brown and Lil’ Baby a few days earlier.
On Friday, Drake shared a photo of himself with Nelly Furtado on stage, as he stepped back on the scene after five years, joining the Canadian singer for his set. He captioned his photo from the stage, “And though my love is rare and though my love is true,” he quoted the lyrics of Furtado’s song I’m Like a Bird.
