Drake was back at it again, pulling double duty as host and musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. For the second time since 2014, the 6 God took over Studio 8H for some hilarious skits and thrilling performances. In addition to imitating Rihanna and engaging in some rap beef, he hit the stage to perform two songs off his chart-topping album Views.
Following an introduction from Chris Rock, a beardless Drizzy served up his No. 1 smash “One Dance.” Standing in a lit box, he showed off his vocal chops and “Hotline Bling”-inspired dance moves that inspired a slew of memes.
For his second performance of the evening, he switched things up while delivering “Hype” for the first time. As snow and smoke filled the stage, Drizzy left the singing behind and busted out some rhymes about RiRi, Michael Jackson, and Juelz Santana.
This is just a taste of what you can expect as he gears up to hit the road on his “Summer Sixteen” arena tour with Future, starting July 20 in Austin, Tex.
