Boseman will make his SNL debut as the host of the sketch comedy show's April 7 episode, in which the "Bodak Yellow" rapper will make her premiere as the musical guest.
"See you soon #SNL!" the Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War star tweeted after the show made the big announcement on their Twitter account Saturday night (March 17).
Following suit, the 25-year-old emcee shared the exciting news with her 19 million followers on Instagram. "APRIL 7th SATURDAY NIGHT LIFE!!!" Cardi captioned an image advertising her upcoming gig. "Who finna not go to the club to watch Bardi on tv?!"
Both Cardi and the 40-year-old Marvel favorite have been having quite the successful year.

The "Bartier Cardi" breakout has seen victories of her own, having won Best New Artist and Best Hip-Hop Artist honors at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards last week. Not to mention, the Love & Hip-Hop: New York alum also revealed her highly-anticipated debut album would drop this April, and as rumors would have it, her first child over the summer.
