Lil Nas X is certainly not the only artist from a Jingle Ball lineup to contract COVID-19 or cancel a show after someone from their team tested positive.

Grammy-winning artist Lil Nas X recently appeared to confirm that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

The hitmaker revealed his diagnosis in a series of tweets, sharing that he is experiencing symptoms associated with the disease. "Covid really sucks. last night i was tryna watch p-rn then i sneezed snot all over p--is lmao," he tweeted -- then deleted, reported Billboard.

His COVID revelations apparently came a little earlier in the afternoon, after former US President Barack Obama shared his list of the favourite music of 2021, which included Lil Nas X`s Montero (Call Me By Your Name)`, according to various outlets that captured the artist`s tweets before he nixed the entire thread.
