"SNL" announced the lineup for the final two episodes of its 43rd season. In addition to Kacey Musgraves performing on the May 12th episode with host Amy Schumer, Nicki Minaj will celebrate her much-talked about comeback on May 19 alongside host Tina Fey.

Last week, Nicki shared two new songs: "Barbie Tingz" and "Chun Li." The May date could signal a possible release for the rapper's long-awaited NM4 album, which will be her first since 2014'sThe Pinkprint. In the past, Nicki has revealed her ambitions for the album, including hopes for delivering a "classic." "I think this era will definitely be the most memorable and the most impactful of my career yet," she told DAZED last year.

The release of her latest singles also furthered her streak on the Hot 100 chart.
