President Joe Biden carved out some time in his busy day on Friday to make his late-night debut as POTUS.

Biden appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and discussed, among other things, the late-night host's new Christmas single, "It Was a… (Masked Christmas)," featuring Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion.

Fallon asked Biden what else can be done to once and for all put an end to the COVID-19 pandemic. "Well, I think what I'd do is have more people listen to your song," said Biden, referring to the pandemic-themed holiday track Fallon dropped this week. "I think that'll get them moving."

The TV host was ecstatic after Biden's official Twitter account tweeted the music video ahead of his late-night TV show appearance. Fallon thanked the president for the gesture, and added that "it changed everything," because "all these radio stations want the song."

"It Was a... (Masked Christmas)" music video features Grande and Fallon wearing matching white sweaters while Megan sports a nurse uniform and syringes as nails. 

"It was a masked Christmas, we stayed in the house/We covered our nose, and covered our mouth/But it's Christmas time. We'll be in line for a booster," the trio performs.

"This Christmas imma make it count. No more quarantine on the couch. This year hang that mistletoe. Imma kiss everybody that I know. This year's different, you can tell. Deck those halls and jingle bells," Megan raps. "Put Purell on everything. Turkey, eggnog, candy cane. Hey Ho. There's a good chance of snow. Hey Ho. Somebody wipe Rudolph's nose. Ho Hey. I promise we'll be OK."

Biden and Fallon also discussed other serious matters -- like the importance of bipartisanship, the "Build Back Better" bill and passing the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. 

It was Biden's third interview with the comedian but first since he was inaugurated as president.
