Ariana Grande and The Weeknd perform onstage at the 2014 American Music Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on November 23, 2014 in Los Angeles, California.

The official music video for The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” hit YouTube with a pretty big guest star:  Ariana Grande.

The video is an animated one, looking like it took a page from Adult Swims’ Rick and Morty, starting with an underground lab in the middle of the desert. We see a decapitated robotic head with Grande’s likeness on a pile of packing peanuts while we hear The Weeknd’s voice as he picks it up and places it on a conveyor belt. We’re taken on a tour of limbs until finally reaching an assembly site, where the rest of her body is put together.

The Weeknd’s character is wearing his iconic red blazer outfitted with leather black gloves. The pair meet once the final pieces —  Grande-bots head is screwed on and her set of brown eyes are implanted. The duo concludes the video with Grande-bot in a life-size Barbie-style box and The Weeknd’s mad scientist overlooking the desert sunset side by side:

This marks the third time the two artists have worked on music together. Grande’s “Love Me Harder” from her 2014 album My Everything featured The Weeknd and so did “Off The Table” from her Positions album.

The music video has reached over 3 million views since its posting today on The Weeknds channel.

Grande posted on her Twitter a teaser photo of herself in the studio yesterday:
