NBC is turning to a popular musician/actor to make sure Saturday Night Live kicks off 2014 the right way: Rapper/singer/actor Drake will host the first SNL of 2014.

This will be his first time hosting, but it won’t be his first time on the SNL stage. Drake has previously appeared on Saturday Night Live as a musical guest in an Oct. 2011 episode hosted by Anna Faris. It’s a role Drake will once again fill in his upcoming hosting stint, performing dual duties as both host and musical guest for the episode. It’s been a big 2013 for Drake, between the massive success of his most recent album, Nothing Was the Same, and his recent cameo appearance in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

The first Saturday Night Live of 2014, with host/musical guest Drake, will air on Saturday, January 18 at 11:30 PM ET on NBC.
