21 Savage Performs ‘American Dream’ Songs With Summer Walker & Brent Faiyaz on ‘SNL’: Watch

21 Savage made his musical guest debut on Saturday Night Live, performing tracks from his latest album.

The U.K.-born, Atlanta-raised rapper delivered three songs — “Redrum” and a mashup of “Should’ve Worn a Bonnet” and “Prove It” — from his 2024 album, American Dream, during the Feb. 24 episode of the long-running NBC sketch comedy show.

With an introduction from host Shane Gillis, Savage opened with “Redrum,” which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year. It’s also his highest-peaking unaccompanied hit on the chart. Dressed in a light blue jacket, white shirt and ripped jeans, the rapper delivered the song alongside a violinist and a slew of black-clad ballerinas.

Later in the episode, 21 Savage returned with a mashup of “Should’ve Wore a Bonnet” and “Prove It,” with guest appearances by singers Brent Faiyaz and Summer Walker.

In January, Savage clinched his fourth Billboard 200 No. 1 album with the release of his third solo LP, American Dream. The long-awaited blockbuster arrived over a half-decade after his sophomore effort, 2018’s i am > i was.
