A cartoon version of the Weeknd co-wrote and starred in a brand new episode of Seth MacFarlane’s American Dad tonight. The season 17 episode is built on the premise that Stan kidnaps the Weeknd in an attempt to teach Roger a lesson. It featured the debut of a new song co-written with Asa Taccone called “I’m a Virgin.” Watch it happen below.
“I’m a longtime fan of the show,” the Weeknd told Variety. “I always wanted to play a character that was the opposite of the public’s perception of me—and of course make fun of myself. Once I was given the opportunity I took complete advantage. Joel Hurwitz believed in the vision and he helped execute it beautifully.”
The Weeknd shared his latest studio album After Hours in March. He’s since released a deluxe version of the LP, complete with remixes by Chromatics, Lil Uzi Vert, and more. It’s actually the second satirical song he’s put out on TV this year following his SNL sketch “On the Couch.”
