Drake has had a busy week. After earning his first No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 with “One Dance” and appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Drizzy returned to Saturday Night Live as the host and musical guest.
In the promos for the episode, Drake and Leslie Jones are hilarious together, showing off their chemistry to excited viewers. Leslie isn’t shy about her attraction for The Boy, and she made sure to put him in awkward positions that ended up being pretty funny. There’s one segment where Drake actually answers his hotline just for the ladies, a play on his current smash “Hotline Bling.” You can watch it here.
Drake’s SNL performances should be another big moment for his career. Two years ago, he performed “Hold On, We’re Going Home” and “From Time” with Jhené Aiko. This time around, he hit the stage to perform "One Dance," which you can watch above. The performance also included a few backup dancers gettin' down to Drake's dancehall-inspired hit and Drizzy showing off some of his moves.
Later in the night, Drake performed "Hype." The set design featured fake snow falling from the ceiling to match up with the album theme of winter to summer to winter. You can watch that below.
