Kanye West Will Perform On SNL The Week Of His Album Release
[UPDATE: Confirmed. Mellissa McCarthy will host.]
Over the last few weeks Kanye West has been loud as ever, which means that it's officially and inescapably Yeezy Season. And while his GOOD Friday campaign seems to have had a rather short run (last drop came nearly two weeks ago with the arrival of "No More Parties In LA,") the promo run will extend well beyond heated Twitter beefs and handwritten track lists.
According to a number of sources, Ye will take to the stage of studio 6B as the musical guest for Saturday Night Live on February 13th, just two days after his album's official release, which bodes well for the rest of us, as Ye and SNL have long made for a jaw-dropping combination, perhaps best exemplified in his 40th anniversary performance with Vic Mensa and Sia. Kanye West's freshly-renamed Waves LP is due on February 11th and promises to feature Chance The Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt, The-Dream, A$AP Rocky, Swizz Beatz and certainly more. You can't pre-order it just yet, but we're sure the appropriate links will surface shortly, so please do keep it locked for updates.
Until then, you can always hope the GOOD Friday drops actually come through.
