Jimmy Fallon ended Saturday Night Live's fall run on a high note when he stopped by to host. Now that Christmas and New Year's are behind us, it's time for the sketch comedy show to get back into the swing of things. It's going to be hard to follow Fallon, but someone's got to.
For the third time this season, this week's host is also going to be the musical guest. And that person is none other than Drake.

NBC has released a series of promos ahead of the rapper's hosting stint this weekend. Drake is in the studio for the entire video and goes back and forth interacting with cast members Bobby Moynihan and Jay Pharoah. It starts off with Bobby letting Drake listen to some hooks for his next song that are literally "cool cats."
We all know Drake is a performer, but can he act as well? His Degrassi acting skills are put to the test when he goes into character to act out some very dramatic dialogue. Bobby is so impressed, he's reduced to tears, saying, "That was beautiful."
Jay Pharoah, on the other hand, is both very cool and very anxious around the artist. He starts off being very star-struck and we get to hear his inner thoughts. ("Would you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me?" is a highlight.)
The entire video clocks in at almost five minutes, so there's plenty more to check out below, where Jay ponders, "Do ducks have belly buttons?" And do Bobby and Jay mix beats in the studio? Drake's a little suspicious.
Are you looking forward to seeing Drake host and perform on SNL? This weekend will also mark the debut for Sasheer Zamata, SNL's first black female cast members in six years -- how much do you think she'll be featured?
Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:35pm on NBC.
