Saweetie is more than just a rapper. The Bay Area-raised femcee has collaborated with brands in recent years to expand her footprint beyond music. The Saweetie meal at McDonald’s is the latest partnership from the “Best Friend” rapper.
Saweetie’s McDonald’s meal includes burger, chicken nuggets and fries
McDonald’s celebrity meals are nothing new; In the past year alone, the fast food giant has collaborated with artists such as J Balvin and BTS for their own unique meals, each with their own combination of menu items and sauces.
Saweetie has made a name for herself on social media as a lover of junk food and interesting combinations of said food. So McDonald’s recruiting her to be the face of a new meal shouldn’t come as a shock.
The official Saweetie McDonald’s meal consists of a Big Mac burger, fries, four chicken nuggets, tangy BBQ sauce, a “Saweetie ‘n Sour” sauce (which is just the sour sauce). – normal soft chain with new wrapping) and a Sprite.
McDonald’s Saweetie collaboration is a first for the chain
The Saweetie Meal is modeled after Saweetie’s must-have order at McDonald’s, as are others launching their own meals with the company. The J Balvin meal was accompanied by a Big Mac, medium fries with ketchup, and an Oreo McFlurry, for example; the BTS meal consisted of large fries, a 10-piece chicken nugget, a drink of your choice, and two new sauces, Cajun and Sweet Chili.
Saweetie is the latest musician to have her own McDonald’s meal, but she’s the first artist of her kind to do so: The Saweetie Meal is the very first official collaboration between the iconic fast food chain and a rapper.

McDonald’s meal Travis Scott was their first meal with a rapper
While Saweetie may claim to be the first female rapper with a McDonald’s meal, she hasn’t been able to claim the title for all rappers in just a few months. Travis Scott launched his ‘Cactus Jack’ meal at McDonald’s in late 2020, becoming the first celebrity with his own meal since Michael Jordan in 1992.
The meal included a Quarter Pounder burger with cheese, bacon, and lettuce, plus medium fries with barbecue sauce and a Sprite with extra ice cream. In total, Scott has raked in around $ 20 million for the deal, according to Food & Wine.
Saweetie’s other collaborations
The Saweetie meal at McDonald’s is one of the rapper’s biggest deals to date and will likely introduce her to many McDonald’s customers who may not be familiar with her. While her final salary from the deal remains to be seen, Saweetie continues to enjoy other brand collaborations she has made in the past.
In 2019, Saweetie created her own clothing collection for PrettyLittleThing with almost 60 items. The collection debuted at New York Fashion Week, and Saweetie described the vibe as “a rich boujie girl enjoying the finer things in life,” adding, “I want to show boys and girls that if you work hard, your work will pay off. “
Saweetie also had her own makeup collaboration with Morphe, a nail polish collection with Sinful Colors, and even her own hair glue with KISS Colors.
