The episode will be Driver’s second time as host and West’s sixth time performing since 2005. West posted the news on his Twitter account as well, referring to himself as “Yandhi”:

Could “Yandhi” be the name for his next album, the follow-up to Yeezus? Ye also released this cryptic tweet shortly thereafter, which many fans speculate could be the new album art (it would certainly fit the motif from “Yeezus,” with the design being very reminiscent):

Will “Yandhi” be a fitting name for Kanye’s follow-up to “Yeezus”?

One thing is probably certain: Ye will be performing the song “I Love It,” ft. Lil Pump, a song currently #6 on the Billboard Top 100 and #1 in streaming. What other songs do you think he’ll perform? Sound off in the comments.
