During the episode, the After Hours artist debuted a new song in which he strays from his usual subject matter for the purposes of humor and sings about being a virgin. Tesfaye, who's most likely not a virgin, co-wrote the song with Asa Taccone. On the track, the Weeknd sings about never doing drugs, not watching porn, and, of course, not having sex. "Pure as a dove and I'm waiting for the right person," he sings.

Tesfaye spoke about the song with Variety and praised co-writer Asa Taccone. "Also a big shout out to Asa [Taccone], who is a f—ing genius producer/writer. Definitely will be collaborating with him more in the future," he said. The pop star continued, "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. [Writer-producer] Joel Hurwitz believed in the vision and he helped execute it beautifully."
The song wasn't the only thing Tesfaye wrote for American Dad. He also helped out with penning the episode, which aired on Monday night.
