Kanye West is returning to Studio 8H.

The rapper is set to as Saturday Night Live's musical guest for the NBC late-night show's Feb. 13 edition, the network announced Friday.

Melissa McCarthy will host the episode. This marks West's seventh time performing on the show, and McCarthy's fourth stint as host.

West's return coincides with the release of his seventh solo album, Waves, which is set to drop on Feb. 11. McCarthy's appearance comes in the midst of Mike & Molly's final season and ahead of back-to-back starring film roles in The Boss, and this summer's highly anticipated Ghostbusters.

They follow Larry David and The 1975, who are set for the Feb. 6 show, as previously announced.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
