Drake Sings About Spanking, Sits In Leslie Jones’ Lap for ‘SNL’ Promo
Drake is headed back to Saturday Night Live this week (May 14), where he'll perform double duty as both the evening's host and musical guest. And based on his promo clips, he'll hopefully have several scenes with SNL cast member Leslie Jones.
From groping to spanking to lap-sitting, Drake and Jones really run the gamut of acceptable behavior here. But the greatest part is seeing Drake flex his acting muscles once more. That comedic timing! Long live wheelchair Jimmy!
Drake last graced the SNL stage as both musical guest and host back in 2014, when he pulled off some legendary impressions of Katt Williams and Alex Rodriguez. We hope to someday see him share the stage with fellow expert impersonator, Ariana Grande.
The "Too Good" rapper's appearance on the show comes at a good time: Drake is currently celebrating his super strong first week sales numbers for his latest release Views, which dropped late last month (April 29). Not only did the album debut at No. 1 on the Billboard chart, but those numbers earned Drake the biggest opening sales week so far this year. Tracks from the album were listened to over 245 million times in its first week -- a number based largely on streams from Apple Music -- according to the New York Times.
Check out the series of promos in the video above and be sure to tune in to NBC on Saturday night at 11:30 EST to watch Drake on Saturday Night Live.
