SZA Is Worried About Bowen Yang in ‘SNL’ Promo Where He Calls Her ‘Scissors’
Bowen Yang just can’t get it straight in this week’s Saturday Night Live promo featuring SZA and host Keke Palmer. “Hi, I’m Keke Palmer and I’m hosting Saturday Night Live this week with musical guest SZA,” Nope star Palmer says in the first video bit.
“And I’m Brown Yang, and we’re going to have such a… did I just say ‘Brown Yang ‘?” Yang asks the guests this week as they giggle nervously. “I can’t even remember my name.” Sorry guys! Bowen Young is my name and we’re going to… Oh my God! Brown Yung! What’s going on right now?,” a melting Yang stammers.
“Are you okay Bowen?” a concerned Palmer inquires. He assures her he is fine and repeats his firstname as evidence. Then he calls himself “Cohen Yang” before insisting that he is Bravo star Andy Cohen. SZA said “I’m worried for you Bowen” before referring to her as “Scissors”. He then says that he’s going on a long nap ahead of tomorrow’s (Dec.3) show.
A second promo shows a rehabilitated Yang claiming that the episode will be epic. She claps out every syllable and Palmer uses it to ask where the toilet is. Palmer previously revealed that she is an “octuple menace”, demonstrating her singing, acting, and dancing skills. She also mentions that she is a beekeeper and painter, magician, and fitted sheet folder. She also admits that she is terrible at math.
The clip dropped a day after SZA shared the cover art for her upcoming S.O.S. album, which does not yet have an official release date. Donning a football jersey with S.O.S stitched on the sleeve, SZA sits on the edge of a diving board planted over a large body of water in the image.
SZA’s newest single, “Shirt,” debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100. Along with doling out another high-charting single, SZA recently covered Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players issue. She also discussed her longevity in music and her future plans.
