Roddy Ricch won’t be performing on “SNL” this weekend.
The rapper has canceled his appearance as musical guest amid COVID-19 concerns. In a post on his Instagram Story, Roddy announced that his team was exposed to the virus and he decided to pull out for safety reasons.
“Due to recent COVID exposure on my team and to keep everyone safe I won’t be able to perform on SNL this weekend,” he told fans.
He plans to reschedule his appearance for another date. “I’m working with the SNL team to lock in a new date though! LOVE STAY SAFE,” he added.

Instead, Bleachers will fill in for him on this weekend’s “SNL” with host Ariana DeBose. It marks the first show since the Dec. 18 episode.
Last month, Roddy released his sophomore album LIVE LIFE FAST, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. He has already announced plans to drop his next project, Feed Tha Streets 3, later this year.
