Young Thug Brings Out Gunna, Nate Ruess and Travis Barker During SNL Debut

Rapper performed 'Tick Tock' and 'Love You More'

Young Thug made his Saturday Night Live debut last night, and he made sure it was one to remember. The rapper played two selections off his just-released sophomore album, Punk, starting with a raucous performance of his latest single “Tick Tock” that ended with a chaotic drum solo by Travis Barker. For his second song, Thug brought out Nate Ruess and Gunna to perform their melodic collaboration “Love You More,” which also featured percussion by the blink-182 drummer.

Thug dropped Punk on Friday. The album includes features from the likes of Post Malone, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Travis Scott, Future, Doja Cat, J Cole, and late rappers Juice Wrld and Mac Miller and is the follow-up to 2019’s So Much Fun.

Watch Young Thug perform “Tick Tock” and “Love You More” below.



Rami Malek took on hosting duties during last night’s episode of SNL. Owen Wilson and Kacey Musgraves kicked off the 47th season earlier this month, followed by Kim Kardashian making her hosting debut with musical guest Halsey. Next week, former SNL cast member and Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis will take on hosting duties, with Brandi Carlile set to perform on the show for the first time.
