Malone’s SNL appearance will occur ahead of the release of his next album, Twelve Carat Toothache, which is scheduled to debut on June 3. The rapper recently provided a preview of a few songs from the record while live streaming on Instagram, revealing collaborations with artists including The Kid Laroi, Doja Cat, Roddy Ricch and Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold.
Malone and Gomez will follow this week’s host and musical guest: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness star Benedict Cumberbatch and Arcade Fire, respectively. The episode will mark Cumberbatch’s second stint as host and the band’s fifth appearance as a musical guest.
