Days after debuting his new album The Life of Pablo at Madison Square Garden, Kanye West made his sixth appearance on Saturday Night Live, returning once again to 30 Rock to perform his new tracks “Highlights” and “Ultralight Beam.”
Joined by Young Thug, Kelly Price, The-Dream, El Debarge, and Kirk Franklin, West kicked off the night with dreamy performance of “Highlights,” transforming Studio 8H with his own video background. For West’s second performance, he recruited a gospel choir and Chance The Rapper — who West previously blamed for the album’s delay — for the opening track from The Life of Pablo, “Ultralight Beam.” West concluded the song by announcing that the album was available immediately on KanyeWest.com and streaming on Tidal.
