Jeremih in hospital on a ventilator after contracting coronavirus

Def Jam-signed singer and rapper Jeremih has been hospitalised after contracting coronavirus, reports say.

As TMZ reports, Jeremih is currently in an Intensive Care Unit on a breathing ventilator, though it’s not clear how long he’s been in hospital.

Chance the Rapper, who collaborated with Jeremih on a 2014 song and shared a surprise mixtape with him two years later, is among those sending well-wishes to the singer on social media following the news.


“Please if you can take a second to pray for my friend Jeremih,” Chance tweeted. “He is like a brother to me and he’s ill right now. I believe in the healing power of Jesus so if you can for me please please say a prayer over him.”

Big Sean added: “Prayers up, praying for your strength Jeremih.”

50 Cent, meanwhile, wrote: “pray for my boy Jeremih he’s not doing good this covid shit is real,” and is the first artist to reveal that Jeremih’s hospitalisation is COVID-19-related. He also revealed in a separate Instagram post that the singer is hospitalised in his hometown of Chicago.


Rapper and producer Hitmaka also shared a message of support “with [Jeremih’s] mother’s blessings,” writing: “I need everyone to pray for my brother Jeremih this message is posted with his mothers blessings.”

On his Instagram Story, he added: “My dawg changed my life, he gone pull through pray for Jeremih” and, “We need that energy pray for my brother he gone shake back.”
