Drake had Covid-19 and has suffered hair loss as a result, as he explained why he’s shaved a heart shape into his hairline.
The 34-year-old rapper has revealed he contracted the illness, and while he didn’t confirm when he battled the virus, he did reveal he suffered from hair loss as a long-term side effect.
Drake recently had a heart shape shaved into the top left of his head, and when one fan took to Instagram to mock the new look, the “God’s Plan” hitmaker admitted it was a drastic measure to cover up his hair loss.
The fan posted: “That heart is stressed.”
And Drake responded: “I had Covid that s*** grew in weird I had to start again. It’s coming back don’t diss (sic)”

The “One Dance” singer revealed his battle with Covid-19 more than a month after he was spotted on a dinner date with influencer Johanna Leia inside Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles, after he rented out the entire venue for their date.
It was later revealed the couple had been dating for “several months” before their trip to the stadium.
Drake has also become a mentor to Johanna’s son Amari Bailey, who is preparing to start UCLA as a basketball player in 2022, giving him advice on how to handle attention and pressure.
Amari – whose father is former NFL player Aaron Bailey – currently plays for Sierra Canyon High, where Drake had previously been seen with Johanna and actor Michael B. Jordan.
Drake – who has three-year-old son Adonis with Sophie Brussaux – has kept his love life out of the spotlight in recent years, but his most high-profile romance was with fellow musician Rihanna.
The couple broke things off in 2016, and although it was claimed at the time they could have rekindled their romance, the pair stayed separated.
