Check out the new photos she posted from the colab below and pick up your own Saweetie Meal, you can order from a delivery app or in person at participating McDonald's.
Summer is about to get icy as McDonald’s and platinum artist Saweetie team up to bring her favorite order to fans nationwide.
You can order the meal here on the McDonald's app starting August 9.
Starting Aug. 9, everyone can order The Saweetie Meal, which features a Big Mac®, 4-piece Chicken McNuggets®, medium World Famous Fries®, a medium Sprite®, Tangy BBQ Sauce and “Saweetie ‘N Sour” sauce – the same Sweet ‘N Sour sauce you know and love, re-named in honor of the new meal.
If you know Saweetie, you know she likes to put her own spin on all her favorite foods to create unique combinations and flavors. And so can McDonald’s fans... simply order the Saweetie Mealand $ try remixing it in one of these four tasty ways on your own, just like she does.
-Fries can be more than a side. Add a little crispiness to your Big Mac when you top it with some fries.
-If it’s a dip, it’s also a topping. Top your World FamousFries with Chicken McNuggets... what could be a better combo?
-Anything can be a sandwich. Chicken McNuggets + Big Mac buns = Chicken McNugget sandwich.
-Seriously, anything. But you don’t need buns. Put the best fries in the world between two fresh Big Mac patties for a new kind of sandwich.
… And no matter how you mix it up, don’t forget to add the Saweetie ‘N Sour and Tangy BBQ sauces.
Saweetie is the latest chart-topping artist to be featured on McDonald’s menu since the Famous Orders program kicked off last year. Like so many fans who have their own menu hacks, her combinations bring a creative twist to McDonald’s iconic food.
“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,” said Saweetie. “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.”
Since first hitting the scene with her viral single My Type, Saweetie has quickly become one of the most sought-after hip-hop artists. And in true Saweetie fashion, she’s not just mixing up her go-to order... her meal will also be served in icy new packaging inspired by her one-of-a-kind style.
“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,” said Morgan Flatley, Chief Marketing and Digital Customer Experience Officer, McDonald’s USA. “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.”

Check out this week's MYX News Hot List below:
McDonald’s is continuing to celebrate the beautifully diverse Asian Pacific American community. They're introducing #WeAreAPA – a digital photo series spotlighting the roles less traveled by Asian Pacific Americans. This new series is in partnership with Dear Asian Americans (DAA) podcast and the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM). They look at seven inspirational people and their stories. Included are two Filipino-Americans Mike Magpayo and Georgina Pazcoguin.
Mike Magpayo – he's the current head basketball coach of University of California, Riverside, and the first-ever Asian American Division 1 basketball head coach
Georgina Pazcoguin – a half-Filipina New York City Ballet dancer who is leading the charge to remove "yellow face" in ballet
Other trailblazers' stories who are spotlighted include:
Up to three stories will be featured weekly on DAA’s Instagram throughout May, while CAAM’s social channels will post select content throughout May. Each feature will include a set of portraits that represent their story, and a complementary interview that will highlight life lessons and what it means to them to be APA today.
Independent photojournalists Eric Lee and Emanuel Hahn, whose work has been featured in major national publications, captured each person and their story. Lee and Hahn’s personal ties to the APA community provided an authentic point of view that aided in capturing the complexity of each story.
As a company that serves diverse communities, McDonald’s is committed to celebrating and bringing awareness to important moments that reflect the communities we serve. McDonald’s has previously celebrated Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with APA Legacy, a series of public service announcements highlighting Asian-American changemakers, that aired nationally for more than seven years.
About McDonald’s USA Community Efforts
The McDonald’s #WeAreAPA is just one of many company initiatives created to connect with the communities McDonald’s serves. These efforts also include hosting webinars such as Classroom Convos, which focus on topics currently impacting Asian and Pacific Islander American students, the HACER® Education Tour, which provides information to navigate the college application process, the Black & Positively Golden Mentors Program, which pairs industry leaders with up-and-coming changemakers in the same fields, and the Archways to Opportunity program for restaurant crew which provides educational resources to eligible employees at participating U.S. restaurants. Together, with franchisees, we are creating opportunities to feed and foster our communities.
