    Kanye West accepts the video vanguard award at the MTV Video Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday, Aug. 30, 2015, in Los Angeles.

    Kanye West is returning to the "Saturday Night Live" stage. The rapper will be the musical guest on the Saturday, Feb. 13 show. Melissa McCarthy will return as host.

    This is West's seventh time performing on the "SNL" stages and McCarthy's fourth time hosting. The McCarthy-West episode airs the week after Larry David's hosting debut. He'll be joined by the 1975 on the Saturday, Feb. 6 show. Fingers crossed we get David's Bernie Sanders impression.

    West's seventh album, "Waves," drops on February 11. The musician has sold more than 32 million albums worldwide and won 21 Grammys. McCarthy is currently starring in CBS's "Mike & Molly," which she took home an Emmy for, and has "The Boss" and "Ghostbusters" coming out in theaters.

    "Saturday Night Live" airs Saturdays (duh) at 11:30 on NBC.
