“Saturday Night Live” recently announced an exciting lineup of musical performers for March. Hip-hop trio Migos will hit the stage on March 3, UK native folk rocker James Bay will perform on March 10 and Canadian native indie rockers Arcade Fire will make their fourth SNL music guest appearance on March 17.
The new year is off to a great start for all three acts with Migos scoring a second U.S. chart-topper with their third studio album Culture II, which dropped on Jan. 26. Culture II is a follow-up to the group’s Grammy-nominated 2017 album Culture. Both albums topped the Billboard 200 albums chart. Migos performed Culture II’s second single, “Stir Fry,” on “The Tonight Show” late last year and posted an audio-only version of "Movin' Too Fast" on Feb. 8 on YouTube (listen to the track in the embedded video above). Migos will perform on SNL with NBA star and analyst Charles Barkley as the host. Migos will also perform live at The Observatory in Santa Ana, Calif. on April 16.
