watch Jay-Z perform on the ‘SNL’ season premiere


The 43rd season premiere of Saturday Night Live aired on September 30 with host Ryan Gosling and Jay-Z was the musical guest. Wearing a Colin Kaepernick jersey Jay-Z performed “BAM” (wearing Colin Kaepernick jersey) with Damien Marley, and then for his second song he performed the title track to 4:44. Watch video of both below.

Alec Baldwin, who won an Emmy this year for his many SNL appearances as Donald Trump, was also back for the season premiere, in the show’s cold-open. Watch that and a few other sketches (like the very funny “Levi’s Woke” commenrcial) below.

Next week (10/7) it’s Gal Gadot (star of Wonder Woman) and musical guest Sam Smith, and the 10/14 edition of SNL is hosted by Kumail Nanjiani and Pink is the musical guest.

Jay-Z’s next public appearance in NYC is part of the big hurricane relief benefit at Barclays Center on October 17 with Cardi B, A$AP Ferg, Joey Bada$$, Vic Mensa, and more.
