Drake Will Return to ‘SNL’ as Host and Musical Guest in May
Drake is returning to NBC's Saturday Night Live later this month to give his fans "views" live from 30 Rock.
The Canadian spitter is fresh off the release of his fourth album, Views, which is slated to be the theme of the show during Drake’s visit. NBC announced that Champagne Papi’s appearance would be the season’s final episode of SNL.
SNL producers also announced that Drake is slated to host alongside funnyman Fred Armisen for SNL’s “final 41” episodes and Drake’s musical performance on the show would take place on May 14. This would make the 29-year-old rapper's third appearance on the legendary sketch-comedy show.
Drizzy made his SNL debut in 2011 as Anna Faris’ musical guest for its Halloween episode and many hits later, he hosted the show again in 2014.
While Drake's SNL set list is still speculative, we think he’ll be performing his chart-topping hit "One Dance." His viral hit "Hotline Bling," was previously parodied on SNL by our new republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in November.
