Jeremih, a singer-rapper known for the song “Down On Me,” is in the intensive care unit being treated for the coronavirus.

The 33-year-old musician’s agent told Variety on Thursday that he’s “still in critical condition” while receiving treatment for COVID-19. However, the star “was just pulled off the ventilator,” according to his agent. 

“Please keep him in your prayers,” the agent said.
