Melissa McCarthy is returning to Studio 8H to host Saturday Night Live on Feb. 13, the NBC show announced via Twitter Friday. Kanye West will be the night’s musical guest.

McCarthy has hosted SNL three times beginning in 2011, and has nabbed an Emmy nod for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series each time. The last time she helmed the show was in February 2014.

This won’t be West’s first time on SNL, either: The musician most recently performed “Jesus Walks,” “Only One,” and “Wolves” at SNL‘s 40th anniversary special in February 2015. His upcoming appearance will mark the sixth time he’s acted as musical guest — his third since telling the show to “kiss my whole ass” in “POWER,” from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

It’s been a busy week for the rapper: He announced the release date of his upcoming album (Feb. 11), then changed its title (from SWISH to Waves), then beefed mightily with Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose on Twitter, then denied any and all alleged bedroom proclivities as revealed by Rose.

McCarthy and West’s episode will air Feb. 13 at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC. SNL next airs Feb. 6, when Larry David hosts and The 1975 perform.
