The R&B veteran ended his nearly 15-year hiatus last month with the release of his third album Black Messiah, which debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200. “SNL” marks his first public appearance since the record’s release.
He will also play a show at the Apollo Theater in Harlem on Feb. 7 before launching his “Second Coming Tour” throughout Europe this spring.
