Hip Hop star Saweetie teams up with McDonald’s Famous Orders promotion, putting a spin on classic menu items

McDonald’s is partnering with platinum hip-hop artist Saweetie, the latest artist to put a spin on the menu with their favorite dishes.

“Saweetie is known for putting her own unique spin on her favorite foods … and now she’s bringing that creativity to her signature McDonald’s order,” the fast food chain said in a press release.

Starting Monday, the “Saweetie Meal” is arriving in restaurants in the United States. The meal includes a Big Mac, 4-piece chicken McNuggets, medium fries, a medium Sprite, tangy BBQ sauce and “Saweetie ‘N Sour” sauce, the same sweet ‘N sour sauce usually offered but re-named for the meal.

Other special highlights of the promotion include:

  • Topping a Big Mac with fries.
  • Topping fries with chicken McNuggets.
  • Making a sandwich with a Big Mac bun and chicken McNuggets.
  • Putting fries in between two Big Mac patties.

Saweetie is not only mixing up the menu, her meal will also be served in new packaging inspired by her own style.

“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, who is known for songs like, “Tap In” and “My Type,” said in the release. “Depending on the mood I’m in, there are so many ways to enjoy my order. I like to keep things fresh – I know that’s right.”

“We’re thrilled to team up with Saweetie, a true brand fan who puts her own spin on everything she touches across music, fashion, beauty and culture,” Morgan Flatley, chief marketing and digital customer experience officer, McDonald’s USA said. “And now she’s brought that spark and creativity to her signature McDonald’s order by celebrating her love for our food and passion for mixing things up.”

The “Famous Orders” program started last year and has featured artists such as Travis Scott, J Balvin and BTS.

“Like so many fans who have their own menu hacks, her combinations bring a creative twist to McDonald’s iconic food,” the release said. “And no matter how you mix it up, don’t forget to add the Saweetie ‘N Sour and Tangy BBQ sauces.
