Drake Says COVID Messed Up His 'Certified Lover Boy' Hairstyle

This article has been updated with new information.

Drake has finally revealed what happened to his hair.

As you may may already know, the rapper maintained a heart-shaped cutout in honor of his album, Certified Lover Boy. And though there have been plenty of memes about the look since its debut, a more recent topic of discussion has apparently been his hairline.

It all started after Drake uploaded an Instagram Story from the studio, which was quickly reposted by a fan account called @drizzy_drake_vids. But given the fact that his new hairdo only featured the top half of the heart, the account also included an older photo of the look and captioned it, "That heart is stressed."

However, it didn't take long for Drake himself to pop up in the comments and explain the shrinking heart was the result of one of his COVID-19 symptoms โ€” namely, hair loss.

"That shit grew in weird. I had to start again," he wrote alongside a cry-laughing emoji, before reassuring fans that the heart was "coming back." And in the meanwhile? "Don't diss," the star said, even though that definitely hasn't stymied any roasts.

That said, Drake's since returned to his signature fade, which may have something to do with his second attempt at another hairstyle.
