Kanye West to Perform on ‘Saturday Night Live’
The full court press for Kanye West's Waves media run is about to be on. Earlier today (Jan. 29), word came down that the superstar artist will grace the Saturday Night Live stage on Feb. 13, two days after the album's Feb. 11 release date. SNL shared the news via its Twitter account, announcing that actress Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, Mike and Molly) will host the night 'Ye performs. Unfortunately, Larry David will be hosting the week before meaning the world will be robbed of having LD and 'Ye on the same stage at the same time.
Waves will be premiered at New York City's Madison Square Garden during the debut of Kanye's Yeezy Season 3 line. Those who can't make the NYC show will be able to watch the show at select theaters around the world at 4 p.m. EST/1 p.m. PST. Tickets for the event are not available at the moment.
Over the past week, Yeezy has posted various edits of a handwritten tracklist and the likes of Swizz Beatz, A$AP Rocky, The-Dream, Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Chance the Rapper and Kendrick Lamar have all stopped by during studio sessions to contribute to the highly-anticipated project.
