Drake will have some big shoes to fill. The most recent episode of the series starred SNL vet Jimmy Fallon and his partner in crime, Justin Timberlake.
Meanwhile, Drake and Rihanna have reportedly broken up. Drake has apparently moved on with his longtime crush Zoe Kravitz. Back in 2011, Drizzy revealed his affections for the actress when he spoke to Fader TV:
“Zoë Kravitz is like one of my favorite people in the world.”
Drake further doted over Kravitz, when he tweeted:
"Zoe Kravitz on Californication…my two favorite things in the world. But she’s not a thing…she’s everything."
