The multi-platinum artist's new record dropped today (7 January) and fans can't quite process the Bruce Almighty actor's surprise appearance, playing the role of a radio host on several tracks of the album.
The LP also features Lil Wayne and Tyler, the Creator, but social media seemed more interested with the appearance of 59-year-old Carrey.
One user wrote: "Not enough people are talking about the Jim Carrey voiceover in these snippets and the 2 tracks he’s on. That’s a legendary friendship right there."
Another tweeted: "I was never really interested in The Weeknd but now that Jim Carrey is on his new album, I might have to listen."
A third added: "Just when you think @theweeknd couldn't top any more he does just that!
"Adding Jim Carrey just made this the album of the effing year!"
"The Weeknd is so cool for having Jim Carrey on his album," another wrote.
A fifth commented: "Those 3 minutes of @JimCarrey's voice at @theweeknd's track is MASTERPIECE."
The new unexpected bromance is one we all didn't know we needed and the pair have been exchanging kind words on Twitter.
Thank you for being a part of this. It’s kismet. Full circle 🥲 https://t.co/elXzYAkpYH— The Weeknd (@theweeknd) January 3, 2022
Carrey wrote: "I listened to Dawn FM with my good friend Abel @theweeknd last night. It was deep and elegant and it danced me around the room. I’m thrilled to play a part in his symphony."
To which an emotional Abel replied: "Thank you for being a part of this.
"It’s kismet. Full circle."
The singer has frequently adopted a new look for upcoming album releases, and on the album cover he appears as an old man, which certainly switched things up a bit.
Last year, he used Botox prosthetics in the music video for 'Save Your Tears'.
He looked completely transformed and wore a red suit while forcing an audience member to press a gun against his head.
The musician then pulled the trigger and confetti came out, but nobody was too bothered about that - it was his swollen face which raised eyebrows.
It turned out it was the work of Prosthetic Renaissance, who took credit for the 'plastic surgery make up' on Instagram.
The studio also shared photos of the moulds and sculptures that were used to create the look.
