Prince returns to SNL

Prince will return to Saturday Night Live as the musical guest of the November 1st episode, hosted by comedian Chris Rock.

It’s going to be an episode of comebacks: Chris Rock hasn’t hosted SNL in 18 years and Prince hasn’t been a guest on the show since 2006. This will also be only the 3rd time The Purple One graces the stage of the longstanding TV show. He first appeared in 1981, promoting his Dirty Mind album.

Prince has recently released two new records which, as we’ve discussed in our chart recap, debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 with collective sales of 77,000 copies. Art Official Age is his latest solo album, while PLECTRUMELECTRUM is a collaborative effort with his new all female band 3rdeyegirl, which will join him on Saturday Night Live.
