Kanye West to Perform on ‘Saturday Night Live’
Yeezy will hit the SNL stage on Feb. 13 -- two days after he releases his seventh album, Waves. Comedian-actor Melissa McCarthy will serve as host of the night’s episode.
This will mark West’s seventh time performing on the popular sketch-comedy series. The Chicago rhymer appeared on the show last February where he performed a medley of hits, including “Jesus Walks,” “Only One” and “Wolves” featuring Sia and Vic Mensa on the 40th anniversary special of SNL.
West will be in New York next week to participate in Fashion Week. It’s rumored that he will also debut his Yeezy Season 3 collection at Madison Square Garden on the same day he releases Waves.
As for the aforementioned album, what we do know is that the collection will feature 10 songs, including the previously released tracks, “No More Parties in L.A.” featuring Kendrick Lamar and “Fade.” Guest features on the album also include rising rap star Post Malone.
There's no word on what songs West will perform on SNL, but it's safe to say that Yeezy Season has officially begun.
