Drake to host 'Saturday Night Live' in January

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Drake will be appearing as both host and musical guest of Saturday Night Live in January.

Drake will be joining the ranks of artists like Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake, who pulled double duty on the variety show. The "Started From The Bottom" singer will be making his appearance on SNL when the show returns on January 18th.

Billboard reported that this will not be Drake's first time on SNL. He guest starred on the show back in October 2011 for the Halloween episode, backing up Anna Faris in two different scenes. He was also the musical guest.

Drake is known for his growing rap career, but was also an actor before he hit it big. Drake was a star on the Canadian show Degrassi, The Hollywood Reporter added.

The rapper released his third studio album Nothing Was the Same this year and had many sold out concerts.

Drake was recently seen at Beyonce's surprise album party following her concert in New York.
