This week’s Saturday Night Live musical guest Tate McRae stars alongside host Jason Momoa and cast member Chloe Fineman in a new teaser for their fast-approaching Nov. 18 episode; and while the 20-year-old pop star doesn’t give viewers a taste of what her performance will entail, she does join in for a tribute to another musician who just so happens to share a first name with the Aquaman actor.
Standing side by side with Momoa and Fineman on the famous 30 Rock stage, McRae first helps her two costars appeal to the youth with some Gen Z-speak — “It’s giving thanks” — before correcting Momoa’s assertion that chocolate milk comes from brown cows. “That can’t be right,” she says, stifling a laugh.
Then, Fineman randomly sings “Jason Momoa” to the tune of Jason Derulo‘s famously meme-able musical tagline. When Momoa insists that he’s going to claim the melody for himself, the “Greedy” singer joins him and Fineman in singing the jingle as a trio.
McRae’s performance this weekend will mark her Saturday Night Live debut. It’s proving to be a big week for the Canadian singer-dancer, who became Billboard‘s latest cover star on Thursday (Nov. 16) and released her new Ryan Tedder-produced single “Exes” on Friday (Nov. 17). The day after she takes the stage on SNL, she’ll perform at the Nov. 19 Billboard Music Awards, where she’s also a finalist in the top dance/electronic song category for her single “10:35.” The ceremony can be viewed on BBMAs.watch or via the Billboard and BBMAs social media channels.
