Drake Performs “One Dance” and “Hype” on ‘SNL’
The Views From the 6 promo campaign is in full effect and Drake is making his rounds in support of the already platinum project. His latest stop was the set of Saturday Night Live where he hosted the show along with Leslie Jones and was also the musical guest, performing his record-breaking single "One Dance" and the album cut "Hype."
A now baby-faced Drizzy showed of his beardless mug while performing the Wizkid and Kyla assisted track in a dimly lit box with pulsating lights. As has been his custom as of recently, he tosses in a signature Aubrey dance move here and there.
"One Dance," the album’s second official single has quickly become one of the hottest singles in the world, and is breaking records. Currently sitting at No. 1 on the Billboard 100, the song broke Adele’s seven-day UK streaming record for a single getting 7.8 million streams in week, topping the previous record of 7.3 million streams for the British singer's hit single "Hello." Drake recently missed time on watching his precious Toronto Raptors to shoot the video for the track which should be coming out any day now.
For his second act, the OVO rapper performed the song "Hype." Using a different background, faux snow fell as the blessed the crowd.
Drake will keep it moving as he continues to push what is looking like it will be the biggest project of 2016. Next up, the T Dot rapper will visit Ellen on Wednesday (May 18).
