Prince’s sudden death certainly is mysterious, but Aretha Franklin thinks she might have it figured out.

The ‘Queen of Soul’ speculated live on MSNBC today thatPrince could have died from the Zika virus.

“They’re saying flu-like symptoms,” she said during the broadcast. “I’m wondering if it has anything to do with this Zika virus.”

The Zika virus is spread by a species of mosquito and is currently causing a health crisis in many parts of the world. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “the most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain and conjunctivitis (red eyes).”

The CDC also notes that people “very rarely die of Zika” or get sick enough to go to the hospital.

Sorry, Aretha. That’s not it.
