Chance The Rapper (SNL Performances)

Chance The Rapper became the first independent artist to perform on Saturday Night Live this past weekend and he absolutely killed it. He started off the performances with "Somewhere In Paradise" and Jeremih joined him on stage. His final performance was his most impressive. He performed a slowed-down version of "Sunday Candy" and it was brilliant. The arrangement was fantastic and the backup from The Social Experiment took it to another level. Chance is such a genuine artist and it shines through on stage. Check out the performances above.

Sam Smith Performs on SNL

If you haven’t seen Sam Smith’s powerful performance from Saturday Night Live this past weekend, stop what you’re doing. I don’t know much, if anything, about Sam Smith, but everything about his two performances made researching him a top priority. His band was fantastic as their instrumentation was simple, yet elegant. They didn’t overdo it. He has a beautiful voice, an amazing range, his backup singers were phenomenal, his songs were sentimental, and homie seems mad humble. Watch his performances of “Stay With Me” and “Lay Me Down” above and enjoy.

Kanye (SNL Performances) & (Album Cover & Title)

Information is flowing in now for Kanye West’s new album. He was on SNL last night and performed a new song, “Black Skinhead,” along with the song he premiered the other day, “New Slaves.” They were some pretty nice performances. I’m still holding out judgement on his message until I hear the album, but you can watch the videos below. Also, in case you can’t understand the lyrics to “Black Skinhead,” Kanye tweeted out pictures of the lyrics. I’ve included those below.

The album title for Kanye’s album has now been confirmed. It is indeed titled Yeezus. The album cover has also surfaced through Instagram. You can check that out below. There’s a sticker covering part of the album cover, but it kinda looks like a Jesus piece that has been melted. With all of this information, I am now ready to believe that June 18th is the release date for his album. Stay tuned for more. Enjoy.
