Drake Will Host and Perform on ‘SNL’ This Month
Fresh off the release of his new album Views, Drake will flex his acting skills once again as the 6ix God is set to host and perform on NBC's Saturday Night Live later this month. It was announced today (May 4) that Toronto's own will pull double duty as host and musical guest next week on the May 14 show. SNL confirmed the lineup with one of their signature cue-card tweets.
This marks the second time the "One Dance" star will host and perform on the legendary late-night comedy show and his third time as a musical guest. Drizzy made his first performance on SNL back in October of 2011 followed by his first hosting/performance gig in January of 2014. Coming from his Degrassi days, young Aubrey was no stranger to live performance and knocked it out of the park. Who could forget his fake Bar Mitzvah skit or his impersonation of his YMCMB boss Lil Wayne?
Drizzy's return to late night comes just two weeks after he dropped his highly anticipated and already platinum-selling album Views. Based on the success of his island-infused lead single "One Dance," which is currently at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, it would be no surprise if he performed a live rendition of the club banger. Other fan favorites off the album include "Controlla," "Weston Road Flows" and of course, last summer's "Hotline Bling." Needless to say, his arsenal is stacked for this upcoming show. Which songs do you want to see the 6ix God perform live next Saturday?
