Mark it in your diary: Solange Knowles is coming to Saturday Night Live. The R&B star will make her first-ever appearance on the Nov. 5 episode of SNL, where she’ll perform two songs from her chart-topping album A Seat at the Table.

Solange’s SNL musical guest slot caps a month of firsts for the singer and songwriter. The Houston-born artist earned her first No. 1 when A Seat at the Table arrived at the summit of the Billboard 200 earlier in October, almost four years after her True album debuted and peaked at No. 157.
Because Solange and Beyonce have now both topped the albums chart, they become the first pair of solo sisters to have done so.
Doctor Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch will be the SNL episode’s host on the night.
