Roddy Ricch has dropped out of his scheduled appearance as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend due to COVID-19 exposure on his team, reports Variety. Jack Antonoff’s project Bleachers will fill in for the rapper. The episode is scheduled to air live on January 15 with actress Ariana DeBose serving as the host.
Antonoff released Saturday Night, his third solo album under the Bleachers moniker, last summer as well as a collaborative single with Lana Del Rey called “Secret Life.” Antonoff was recently named the 2021-2022 academic year artist-in-residence at New York University’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music as well.
