Camila Cabello has tested positive for COVID-19.

In a new video posted to the pop star's TikTok page on Monday, Cabello revealed she has COVID-19 while lip-syncing to Pitbull's "Watagatapitusberry (Remix)" from her bed, surrounded by a variety of cold medications.

"I got the rona," wrote Cabello, 25, in a caption shared alongside the video, which sees the former Fifth Harmony member bopping her head and pumping her fist in the air from her bed as the 2010 Latin hip-hop collaboration featuring the Miami rapper, Sensato, Black Jonas Point, El Cata and Lil Jon plays in the background.

While the Netflix app plays through a slideshow on Cabello's television behind her, the Familia performer shows off a bag of Hall's cough drops, a package of menthol vapor chest rub, bottles of DayQuil and "Cold, Flu & Sore Throat" syrups and a television remote in the clip.

"Henny con cranberry / I'm feeling so dirty / Baby, you spaghetti? / Let's go, I'm ready / Tírame por el Blackberry / Vámono' en el ferri / Be happy, don't worry," the five musicians can be heard singing in the TikTok video. "Watagatapitusberry / Watagatapitusberry / Watagatapitusberry Watagatapitusberry / ¿Qué lo que significa watapitusberry?"

Cabello later re-shared the video to her Instagram Story with the caption, "If u got the rona and still gonna live it up in isolation make some f---in noise."

In May, the "Bam Bam" performer spoke to PEOPLE about getting vulnerable on social media in reference to a lengthy note she posted about getting photographed by paparazzi during private Miami beach trips and the uncomfortable toll it takes on her mental health and body image. Fans responded positively, though the message was difficult for the musician to share.

"I hesitated because I think it's vulnerable to post behind the scenes things like that," explained Cabello at the time. "I also recognize the immense privilege I have and the life I live, so there's always a risk that I'm like, 'Are people just going to think I'm whining?'"

"People can often look at these pictures of celebrities and want to change their diet or aspire to that," she continued. "I thought it was important for me to be like, 'Hey, this isn't necessarily something to aspire to. I might look a certain way, but I've had a really s—ty time, and that's not a good way to be."

Cabello's aware that opening up about such hardships doesn't eradicate them, but she hopes to help others by letting them know what an A-list, red carpet-walking celebrity like her is really feeling behind closed doors. "I don't have a solution for it, and I struggle with it all the time, even after that post. At the Met [Gala], I struggled with it too," she said. "It's an ever-present struggle, and I think a lot of women feel that way."
