The Weeknd is taking over your TV screen.
After conquering the charts with his latest album After Hours, the superstar singer is foraying into television by co-writing an episode of the TBS animated series “American Dad.”
On Tuesday, he shared a sneak peek of the episode, entitled “A Starboy Is Born,” before it airs next Monday. In the teaser, Roger Smith, voiced by Seth McFarlane, transforms into The Weeknd and performs his own rendition of his hit “Starboy.” “Life’s much better as The Weeknd though / Partial Strip view at the Flamingo,” he sings.
The Weeknd also makes a cameo as himself in the 30-second clip. “I thought you were going to murder me,” says an animated Abel while seated around the show’s characters at the dinner table.
According to Deadline, the episode will also feature an original song by the Grammy winner, whose album After Hours is currently No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
The Weeknd’s episode of “American Dad” airs Monday, May 4, at 10 p.m. on TBS. Get a sneak peek below.
