Khalid Tapped To Perform On 'SNL' Episode Hosted By Idris Elba

The 'Suncity' creator has new tunes coming.

(AllHipHop News) R&B/Pop performer Khalid will hit the Saturday Night Live stage on March 9. The "Saturday Nights" singer will be part of an episode hosted by The Wire actor Idris Elba.

After dropping the Suncity EP in 2018, Khalid has talked about releasing his sophomore studio album before his Coachella set in April. An appearance on SNL could correspond with new music.

The American Teen LP arrived on March 3, 2017. Khalid's double-platinum project hosted the Top 20 singles "Location" and "Young Dumb & Broke." The Texan also scored a hit with the Normani duet "Love Lies."

Season 44 of Saturday Night Live has already featured musical guests such as Kanye West, Travis Scott, Lil Wayne, Ella Mai, Anderson .Paak, and Meek Mill. This will be Khaled's first performance on the NBC sketch comedy program.
