Watch Kanye West and Melissa McCarthy in awkward ‘SNL’ promo video

Rapper will perform on this week's episode of 'Saturday Night Live'

Kanye West has appeared in a promo video ahead of his upcoming live performance on Saturday Night Live this evening.

West featured in the advert alongside guest host Melissa McCarthy, plus comedian Taran Killam. Watch the rather awkward promo clip below, in which the star fails to utter a single word.

West will perform live on SNL tonight, following on from last week’s guests The 1975.

Kanye West’s new album ‘The Life Of Pablo’ was premiered on Thursday evening during the Yeezy Season 3 fashion launch, however it appears to have undergone various changes since.

Having missed its original release date of Friday February 12, West has since blamed Chance The Rapper for delaying his album release. It is expected to be released very soon.
