Drake will put his child-actor chops to use on January 18 when he serves as host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. If SNL's just-released promotional teasers are any indication of what to expect from the Degrassi alum, then rest easy: "We'll Be Fine."

While Eminem played it way too straight in his recent SNL promos, Drake looks to be enjoying himself on camera. The "Worst Behavior" rapper is laid-back, confident, and more than willing to poke fun at his persona with SNL castmembers Bobby Moynihan and Jay Pharoah. In a span of just a few minutes, Drake goes from being the subject of a fanboy-crush, deflects an eye-roll-inducing "Started From the Bottom" pun, and shows off his "ACTING!" skills by freely admitting that he's "the saddest boy in all of Canada."

Watch the bits above, and relive Drake's stellar 2013 by flipping through The Year in Drake.
