The Weeknd Set to Make His Debut as a TV Writer!

Abel Tesfaye, better known by his stage name The Weeknd, has always had a flair for the dramatic. His new album, After Hours, features a retro 80s sound, that he coupled with a series of vintage-styled music videos! Some have even suggested that The Weeknd is using those videos to build a new cinematic universe for himself.

Now, for the first time, Abel is able to take his talents to the TV screen! He was involved in a new episode of American Dad that will air on Monday, May 4th, on TBS. And he’s pretty proud of it! Check out some of the screenshots and teasers that The Weekend has posted in the days leading up to his broadcast debut:
