Drake will perform and host Saturday Night Live on May 14th, NBC announced today. The rapper will pull double duty for the second time, following up his first appearance on the show in 2014. It's been a good few days for Drake — after releasing his fourth studio album Views last Friday and selling over 600,000 copies in the first 24 hours, the album is on pace to be the 21st album to sell 1 million copies in a week.
Very excited to announce the rest of our May shows! #SNL pic.twitter.com/ZZS6ejpEeY— Saturday Night Live (@nbcsnl) May 4, 2016
And the lead single off Views, the infectious dancehall track "One Dance," moved up to second place on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, giving Drake a legitimate chance to land his first No. 1 song next week. If everything goes as planned, SNL will be the cherry on top.
