Leon Bridges performed “Smooth Sailin’” on this week’s “SNL.” See the video below of Bridges’ performance of “Smooth Sailin’”on “Saturday Night Live.”

This is first time Bridges has performed on “Saturday Night Live.” The soul singer, who has often been compared the to the late Sam Cooke, wowed the audience with his rendition of his hit song.

The music video for “Smooth Sailin’” looks like an appearance on a 1960s TV show. The very basic video shows Bridges in a green suit, with a narrow black lapel, dancing at a microphone as he croons the uptempo song, backed by three guitarists, a drum player, a saxophonist, and a couple of back-up singers.

“Smooth Sailin’” is off Bridges’ album “Coming Home.” The song reached number 14 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart, while the record peaked at number six on Billboard’s 200 chart.
