Jack Harlow Set To Return To ‘Saturday Night Live’
Jack Harlow will return to Saturday Night Live this month, appearing on the show’s 29 October episode as both its host and musical guest.
The announcement was made during last week’s SNL, which also saw the show’s musical guest – fellow rapper Megan The Stallion – double as its host. It’ll mark the show’s return to NBC after a week off, shutting down rumours that Taylor Swift would make a surprise appearance this coming Saturday, October 22.
Harlow made his Saturday Night Live debut last March, performing a medley of his singles Tyler Herro and Whats Poppin’. He also teamed up with Pete Davidson to deliver a skit parodying Eminem.
Harlow is currently riding the high of his second album, Come Home The Kids Miss You, which arrived back in May via Generation Now and Atlantic. It was supported by the singles Nail Tech and First Class.
In an album review, the NME highlighted the album’s “commercial-sounding tracks”, writing: “On an album full of soppy exploration of Harlow’s love life and what it’s like to be a rap superstar, these chirpy tunes liven up a tracklist that can otherwise be melancholy and monotonous.”
Last month, Harlow was once again the top honouree at the SESAC Music Awards in Los Angeles – awarded with the title of Songwriter of the Year for the second consecutive year.
Additionally, Song of the Year resulted in a tie – Harlow was honoured with this award for the second year in a row, this year for Industry Baby, tying with Heat Waves recorded by Glass Animals for the Song of the Year title. Sony Music Publishing, publisher of Industry Baby, was named Publisher of the Year.
Next month, Harlow will embark on a 14-date tour of Europe and the UK. The run will begin in Birmingham on Wednesday November 2, wrapping up in Milan on Monday November 21.
Jack Harlow plays the following UK tour dates:
2 November – Birmingham, O2 Academy
3 November – London, OVO Arena Wembley
4 November – Manchester, O2 Victoria Warehouse
7 November – Leeds, O2 Academy
8 November – Nottingham, Rock City
