As if Drake’s first performance of the night on ‘Saturday Night Live’ wasn’t enough, the rapper came out again to perform his new song ‘Hype’ on May 14, and it had us glued to the screen! It was so good.
Obsessed! We love Drake’s, 29, new song “Hype,” but who knew the track would sound even better live? The rapper was all about being serious when he slayed on the Saturday Night Live stage with the new tune from his Views album. We literally couldn’t stop fan-girling over his performance.

Who says the recorded versions of songs are always better than the live ones? This track from Drake’s new album is totally intense, and with the help of the Saturday Night Live stage, things were taken to the next level on May 14. Drake was way more serious during this performance, not really doing his dance-move thing like he did when he sang “One Dance” at the beginning of the show.

Performing his new tunes wasn’t the only thing the rapper did on Saturday Night Live, either. He was also the host, and a part of a lot of hilarious sketches. We’re sure those came to him easily because of his acting days on Degrassi. Seriously, how funny was he? He made us LOL when he did his opening monologue. Did you catch the Rihanna, 28, jab? He totally impersonated her. We can see why — they’re always in the news about being each other’s love interests. And how about him talking about all of those memes that he’s been in? From his “Hotline Bling” video dancing to his recent beard shave. So funny!
Do you think Drake was an entertaining musical guest on SNL, HollywoodLifers?
