“Birthday Sex” rapper Jeremih is reportedly heading home Friday after spending nearly a month battling COVID-19 at the hospital.
Chance the Rapper, who was among the many artists sending in prayers for Jeremih’s speedy recovery, announced the good news on Thursday.
“I AM FILLED WITH PRAISE RIGHT NOW,” he wrote on Twitter, “I JUST HEARD MY BROTHER JEREMIH’S VOICE ON THE PHONE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ALMOST A MONTH.”
“HE WILL BE OUT THE HOSPITAL TOMORROW,” the “Holy” rapper ecstatically conveyed.
Jeremih, whose real name is Jeremy Felton, was hospitalized earlier this month. It was reported on November 16 that he was in critical condition after being transferred to the ICU and put on a ventilator.
The report sparked intense calls for prayers from the music industry, including hitmakers 50 Cent, Toni Braxton, Big Sean and Meek Mill.
Jeremih’s family announced last week via Entertainment Tonight that he had “been transferred out of ICU. He will spend the rest of his recovery time in a regular hospital room… The true healing begins. Thank you all for your prayers and wishes.”
Chance expressed his unwavering appreciation of the hospital staff that cared for his friend during such a dark moment, writing in a subsequent tweet, “Thank you to the medical staff at northwestern and thank you to everyone who held him up in prayer even when it seemed so grim. We are a testimony.”
