The incomparable Pharrell Williams and N.E.R.D. will perform at halftime of the 67th NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles.

This will mark P's second time headlining the NBA event. In 2014, the hitmaker hosted the set and brought along surprise appearances from Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Nelly and Chad Hugo. The addition of N.E.R.D. this year comes after the group released their first album in seven years last month, No One Ever Really Dies.

The 2018 NBA All-Star Game takes place on Sunday, February 18 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif. The annual game takes place at 8pm EST.
