Watch Big Sean Perform 'Bounce Back,' 'Sunday Morning Jetpack' On SNL

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Big Sean is the musical guest on tonight's episode of Saturday Night Live, and he's in full album mode with his fourth LP I Decided dropping in the coming weeks.

After an introduction from guest host Aziz Ansari, Sean performed "Bounce Back," the album's lead single, for his first song. The stage had smoke and an assortment of flashing panels - the sort of ominous tone Sean adopted with his breakthrough album Dark Sky Paradise. Sean ripped through the song, and gave a nod to his hometown of Detroit by doing The Blade, the dance created and coined by slain Motor City rapper Blade Icewood.

For Sean's second performance, he debuted an unheard song from the album, "Sunday Morning Jetpack." The song puts Sean in reflective mode, thanking loved ones for the good memories and lessons he learned along the way. It seems to fit in perfectly with the album concept Sean described to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Friday. "Thanking God for all my setbacks, 'cause He the reason I'm able to get back," he rhymes to conclude the song.
