Last night was the 43rd season premiere of “Saturday Night Live” with host Ryan Gosling. Musical guest JAY-Z performed “Bam” and the title track off his recent album 4:44. Watch both performances below. During “Bam,” Jay sported a Colin Kaepernick jersey. At his Meadows Festival performance this year, he dedicated his track “The Story of O.J.” to the former San Francisco 49er. Earlier this week, Jay and Gosling shared a promo video in which Gosling recounted the time he saw Jay at Coachella.
Jay is currently on tour and will remain on the road through the end of December. Recently, he stopped by the BBC Radio 1 Live Loungeto play 4:44 track “Family Feud” and his Linkin Park collaboration “Numb/Encore.”
