Cardi B to become Jimmy Fallon’s first Tonight Show co-host
On Monday (Apr. 9) Cardi B will co-host The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. The rapper will be interviewed on the show and serve as the night’s musical entertainment, while she will also sit in with comedian Jimmy Fallon as he chats with other to-be-announced guests in the hour-long episode.
The event marks the first time The Tonight Show has ever fielded a co-host, though the late-night staple has a long history of tapping celebrities to fill in as guest hosts.
The Bodak Yellow hitmaker will take the opportunity to promote her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, to be released on Friday (Apr. 6).
Her extraordinary presence at the show will air two days after she makes her musical debut on comedy show Saturday Night Live this weekend (Mar. 7), which will be hosted by Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman.
The rapper has previously appeared on The Tonight Show twice. Last September, she performed “No Limit” alongside G-Eazy, and in December, she returned for an interview with Fallon that quickly went viral.
