Saweetie N' Sour: McDonald's Newest Celeb Collab
Starting August 9th, McDonald's is releasing their fourth celebrity collaboration meal, in the last year, with the hip-hop superstar Saweetie. Saweetie is well known for her hit songs like "My Type" and "Best Friend" feat. Doja Cat.
The newest Famous Order "The Saweetie Meal" includes a Big Mac, 4 piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, a medium Sprite, and featuring the newly rebranded Saweetie 'N Sour and Tangy BBQ Sauces.
McDonald's has also decided to feature "Remix it like Saweetie," a video where the rapper explains how she puts fries in the Big Mac, or creates a Chicken McNuggets sandwich, because her meal "was made to be remixed and remixed again."
When asked about how the collaboration came to be, she had this statement: "McDonald's and I run deep – from growing up back in Hayward, California, all through my college days – so I had to bring my icy gang in on my all-time favorites," Saweetie said in a statement. "Depending on the mood I'm in, there are so many ways to enjoy my order."
The biggest new addition to this meal is the Saweetie Sweepstakes. By entering you could win two limited-edition Brandon Blackwood bags and a 5-day trip to Las Vegas, Nevada from November 11th, 2021 to November 15th, 2021 along with VIP tickets to watch her perform live. The contest is no purchase necessary and ends September 5th, 2021 so if you want to be able to see the "Icy-Queen" herself in person be sure to get your entries in now on the McDonald's website or app!
According to USA Today, when the McDonald’s CEO, Chris Kempczinski, was asked about more celebrity meals being introduced soon he shared:
“The Famous Orders platform was based on a simple idea: what unites all our customers, including famous celebrities, is everyone has their go-to McDonald's order,” Kempczinski said. “The Travis Scott, then J Balvin Famous Orders broke records in the US. This quarter, the BTS Famous Order took that ambition globally, connecting our marketing, core menu and digital strategies in 50 markets.”
Who do you think will be the next celeb to receive their very own Famous Orders collaboration?
