Nicki Minaj to Perform on ‘SNL’ in May

Posted by Unknown on 2:24 PM

Barbie is coming back to “SNL.”

The Young Money queen will return to “Saturday Night Live” as the show’s musical guest on May 19. Tina Fey, a former cast member, will be back as host.

Nicki was a musical guest in 2011 and 2014. She made cameos during Drake and The Weeknd’s performances in 2011 and 2015, respectively.

Minaj has also been parodied on the show. Nasim Pedrad played her in 2012, while Taraji P. Henson acted as Barbie back in 2015.

It’s unclear whether Nicki will join the cast for a skit like she has in the past. She acted as Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian in 2014 and appeared in the video for The Lonely Island’s “The Creep” in 2011.

Nicki’s album release could coincide with her “SNL” booking. While she has yet to announce an official date, a May release is likely. It will be her first full-length album since 2014’s The Pinkprint.

Minaj just dropped two singles from the as-yet-untitled project. “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li” debuted at No. 83 and No. 92 on the Billboard Hot 100 following their bundled release, extending her streak for most Hot 100 hits among women.

Prior to Nicki, Donald Glover will pull double duty as host and musical guest on the May 5 episode of “SNL.”
