Drake Parodies “Back to Back” on ‘SNL’
Beard or no beard, Drake is a star. The 6 God made his appearance on Saturday Night Live along with special guest Leslie Jones and plenty of hi-jinks ensued. Along with a musical performance, Drizzy showed off his acting side in two hilarious skits.
Aubrey kicked off the show with a funny monologue. Donning an all black suit, the now baby-faced MC went into a bit complete with jokes about Trump winning the election, a song about the meme craze that people have started with his pictures and an impersonation of Rihanna.
He wasn't done providing laughs, though. Drake was also in a skit where he parodied his Meek Mill diss track "Back to Back." In the sketch, Drizzy keeps running into situations where he is low-key clowned by the SNL cast. Instead of going off and getting out of his character, the rapper gets back at them in his head with hysterical remakes of the Grammy-nominated track.
Drake later showed up in a skit with Jay Pharoah where he checked the comedian for an impersonation of the Toronto rapper.
Of course, Champagne Papi didn't leave without blessing the crowd with a performance of some new records. He later hit the stage and performed "One Dance" and the Views From the 6 album cut "Hype."
Drake has been going hard in promotion of his new album, seemingly doing a new interview every few days. He has already appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, sat down with Nardwuar, chopped it up with Zane Lowe and has a date with Ellen this week.
