The 30-second teaser sees Seth McFarlane’s Roger Smith transforming into The Weeknd to perform a rendition of his hit single, “Starboy.” The Weeknd also appears in the clip as himself in a dinner scene where he admits to everyone around him, “I thought you were going to murder me.”
The Weeknd co-wrote his episode of American Dad! with Robot Chicken producer, Joel Hurwitz. He will be voicing a character in the episode as well, and Deadline reports that we can expect to hear a new original song.
The episode, titled “A Starboy Is Born,” airs on TBS on Monday, May 4, at 10 p.m. You can watch a sneak peek below.
