Get ready for a whole lot of Kanye West come February. The rapper, whose new album Waves drops Thursday, Feb. 11, will follow up the big release with a performance on Saturday Night Live on Feb. 13. Melissa McCarthy is set to host, so we're sure it's going to be a night to remember.

This isn't the first time West has taken the SNL stage. He's been the show's musical guest six times before, and we have a feeling he'll be aiming to top his pervious performances.

West's upcoming record has been garnering a lot of buzz as of late, and much of it has come from the rapper's own Twitter account. This week, he announced that the album was called Swish and then changed it to Waves the next day. He's also dubbed this "the best album of all time," so we're sure we'll be in for a musical treat.
