Live from New York, it’s Cardi B.
Iconic TV show Saturday Night Live is keeping its hosts and musical guests current. It was announced that on April 7th, actor Chadwick Boseman will host with chart topping rapper Cardi B. as musical guest.
According to Fader, this will be the first appearance for both Bosesman and Cardi B. Boseman is currently one of the most recognizable faces in America as Black Panther has continued to break box office records around the world.
It’s very likely that there will be a sketch dedicated to the cinematic juggernaut.
Cardi B. will grace the stage with her ferocious rap skills after having an already meteoric year.
Not only was it announced that she would be touring the country with her “Finesse” collaborator Bruno Mars this fall, but she was also nominated for two Grammy awards for her smash single “Bodak Yellow” as well as performed during the ceremony and won the Best New Hip-Hop Artist award at the recent iHeartRadio awards where she announced her debut album.
Her personal life has also been soaring. In addition to her career highs, she has also found herself engaged to Migos member Offset back in October with a colossal ring.
It has also been rumored that the rap royalty of today is secretly pregnant, but Cardi B maintains that she’s simply gaining weight and would like to do so in peace.
While they have plenty of reason to be offered the honor of performing on the New York institution, Cardi B will be promoting her debut album, due out in April, and Chadwick Boseman will be promoting his upcoming appearance in Marvel’s upcoming, star-studded Avengers: Infinity War due out April 27th.
The episode is sure to be one of the most watched of the season and will air on April 7th.
