“Saturday Night Live” this week featured a “Boyz II Men”-style song about missing Barack Obama, performed by the former president’s friend and musician Chance the Rapper.

Chance the Rapper, who hosted SNL this week, performed the ballad alongside cast members Chris Redd and Kenan Thompson, with all three lamenting the end of Obama’s presidency.
