Watch Childish Gambino Perform New Song "Saturday" On SNL


Donald Glover, both the host and musical guest on last night’s Saturday Night Live, debuted two new songs on the show. The first “This Is America,” a politically-charged rap track, appeared both as a music video and live performance. The second, “Saturday,” was performed toward the end the night. Zoe Kravitz introduced the performance, red solo cup in hand, before joining some extras in a party setting on stage. 

“Saturday” is a sung track, but moves away from the P-funk “Awaken, My Love!”, instead falling somewhere closer to the Pharrell-bounce 2015 single “Sober” from the Kauai EP.

As for his hosting duties, Glover parodied A Quiet Place, where the film’s horror was built f a Kanye Twitter storm. He also parodied Migos and did a musical monologue.

Gambino will be heading out on a tour this summer, which will be supported by Rae Sremmurd and Vince Staples on select dates. He has yet to announce a follow-up to his 2016 album “Awaken, My Love!”, though based on the music premiered on the show, it seems likely an album will be arriving soon.

Glover’s critically-acclaimed FX show Atlanta will air its season finale Thursday.
