Saturday Night Live regulars” Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd joined host Chance the Rapper in a ‘90s R&B style digital short music video urging former President Barack Obama to return to the White House.
“Every night, I turn the TV on and cry. I feel like we’re all going to die. So come back Barack! Even though it’s not allowed, we want you back somehow. I need you in my life… Like really bad, like world war bad,” they pleaded in the comical lyrics.
This was Chance the Rapper’s debut as an “SNL” host and he absolutely killed it!
During his opening monologue, he told the crowd that he wasn’t there promoting any new project, but humble bragged that he plans on donating $1 million to Chicago Public Schools. But there was a caveat: His accountant reminded him that he doesn’t have that kind of money. Ha!
So…he decided to make a hit Thanksgiving song in order to keep his promise.
“Mariah Carey is at that tree lighting every year singing ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ and it’s not ’cause she loves giant trees. It’s ’cause she loves having a third assistant whose only job is to yell at her second assistant,” said Chance.
“I want to become the Mariah Carey of Thanksgiving. I want my song to honor what’s truly special about this holiday: how it’s the one time a year that you invite all your relatives to dinner, even the ones you can’t stand. So all you outcasts and weirdos in the family, this one’s for you.”
Peep his Thanksgiving song:
