Fans can’t get enough of Saweetie’s latest partnership. On Monday (Aug. 9), the “Best Friend” rapper announced the arrival of her new Saweetie Meal at participating McDonald's locations nationwide. According to the franchise, the limited-edition meal comes with a Big Mac, four-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, medium Sprite and Tangy BBQ and “Saweetie ‘N Sour” sauces.
Known for her own eyebrow-raising food concoctions, Saweetie hopped on Instagram on Monday to announce the meal’s arrival to her fans.
“IT’S HERE!!! Introducing The Saweetie Meal [at McDonald's],” she wrote.
The 28-year-old also changed her Twitter name to “Big Mac Mama.” In a statement, Saweetie said, “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.”
“Depending on the mood I’m in, there are so many ways to enjoy my order,” she added. “I like to keep things fresh — I know that’s right.”
Saweetie marks the first female artist to partner with McDonald’s following the brand’s several successful celebrity pairings, such as Travis Scott’s fast-selling collaboration. According to a press statement, McDonald’s is also partnering with Saweetie for a “Saweetstakes.” Customers who order the Saweetie Meal through the McDonald’s app will be entered to win a pair of Brandon Blackwood limited-edition handbags and a five-day trip to Las Vegas to watch her perform.
On Monday, Saweetie also worked the drive-thru at a California McDonald’s to surprise her fans. Besides the new deal, the Bay Area native recently revealed to Hollywood Life that her forthcoming debut album Pretty Bitch Music is complete.
“I went to Paris to finish my album [and] now I’m just living with it to ensure it’s perfect,” she told the outlet. “A new album is something serious. I need to know that when I release this kid of mine — because as artists we feel our products are our babies — that no matter what anybody says, I’ll know that it’s my best work. I’m really challenging myself and I just want to ensure that I put out a body of work that [will] symbolize art.”
