Michael B. Jordan said during his Saturday Night Live opening monologue that he is on the dating app Raya following his split from Lori Harvey

Live from Studio 8H, it's Michael B. Jordan!

The actor, 35, hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time over the weekend, where he was joined by Lil Baby, who served as the evening's musical guest.

During his opening monologue, Jordan detailed how he "went through my very first public breakup," referring to his split from Lori Harvey in June 2022 after more than a year of dating.

"Most people after a breakup are like, 'I'm going to get in better shape.' But I was already in Creed shape!" he continued, referencing the upcoming boxing film he directed and stars in. "So I had to be like, 'All right, I guess I'll learn a new language.' Anyway, estoy en Raya."

SNL castmembers Chloe Fineman, Heidi Gardner, Ego Nwodim and Punkie Johnson then tried to shoot their shot with Jordan — PEOPLE's 2020 Sexiest Man Alive — with Nwodim, 34, rocking a wedding dress and Johnson, 37, poking fun at her own sexuality.

"Aren't you gay?" Jordan asked Johnson as she flirted with him. In response, the star said, "I am. But you're Michael B. Jordan. And I'm Punkie B. Curious. I mean, even vegans got cheat days, right?"

During the show, Jordan took part in various sketches, including one where he played Jake from State Farm, and another where he portrayed a Southwest agent in a sketch that poked fun at the airline.

One other moment from the show saw Jordan team up with Bowen Yang to record the grunts and sound effects needed for fighter video games.
