Tomorrow night, Drake will perform on Saturday Night Live for the first time ever. Drizzy speaks to MTV in the video above about appearing on the show and says he will be performing “Make Me Proud” with a special guest. Could it be Nicki Minaj ❓ 😛

One of the top names on his list is a legendary vocalist who recently announced she’ll be releasing her first new album in almost a decade.

“I’m really trying to work with Sade,” he revealed. “Lil Wayne will be on it. Young Jeezy, Jay-Z, Kanye will be doing work on it. It’s in the family.”

There is one other guest that he elected to be coy about. “It’s this other one I’m excited about that’s kinda left [field],” he demurred. “It’s gonna be a great project — well-rounded.”
