Charles Barkley will host their episode.
Migos will make their SNL debut on March 3rd, where they will perform as the musical guests. The announcement was made on this week's episode of SNL, and was further promoted by Migos on Instagram. "C U L T U R E I I TAKING OVER" reads the caption of the post. Charles Barkley has been confirmed as the host for the show.
SNL has recently hosted a few notable rap and R&B artists. In December, SZA performed her singles "Love Galore" and "The Weekend" on the show. Last month, Halsey brought out G-Eazy, who she is dating, to perform "Him & I." There have also been some rap-inspired skits on SNL, including a bit where Lil Pump's "Gucci Gang" was parodied by Pete Davidson and Sam Rockwell as "Tucci Gang" (inspired by underrated character actor Stanley Tucci).
The group just released their third studio album CULTURE II. The project features a whopping 24 tracks, including singles like "Stir Fry" and "Motor Sport." The trio recently hit the late night stage when they took "Stir Fry" to Jimmy Fallon. Watch the performance here.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Migos reflected on recording in South Africa. "We were just writing in the middle of, like, the jungle," said Takeoff. "Our backyard was, like, the trees... [Quavo] saying 'straight out the jungle, straight out the jungle,' like on a Bob Marley kind of like Jamaican tip. We wouldn't have said that if we wasn't in the environment we was in."
