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 Saturday (October 22).

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 a three star review, NME’s Kyann-Sian Williams 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.”
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. More info and tickets for the tour can be found here.
