Kanye West performs “Wolves” on SNL

Saturday Night Live celebrates its 40th anniversary with a performance by Kanye West and appearances from SIA and Vic Mensa

Yeezy took to the SNL40 stage in a black ensemble and opened up with “Jesus Walks” from his debut album The College Dropout. In Kanye fashion, he laid down for the majority of the snippet before standing to perform “Only One”, the song penned for his daughter North.

Suddenly, a ball of cotton wool – sorry, SIA – and Vic Mensa crawl onto stage as the eerie croons of “Wolves” sound out. Despite the strange ‘wolf’ crawling (we use that term loosely), Kanye and co give an exceptional performance of the new single which featured in his Adidas fashion show last week. A very promising start to his next project!

Check the performance below if only for SIA’s bizarre wig.
