ARMY, this one’s dedicated to you.

April 19, 2021

While fast food news is often music to our ears, the latest news from a fast food giant is sure to be chart-topping.

McDonald’s has been appealing to pop culture lovers in recent months, with special meals inspired by various cultural icons such as Travis Scott and J Balvin.

The latest partnership is with Grammy-nominated Korean pop supergroup BTS, known for mega hit songs like “Dynamite,” and “Boy With Luv.” In the group’s honor, the K-Pop-inspired meal will have some distinctly global flavors not yet seen in McDonald’s within the U.S.

The BTS Meal will be available at participating U.S. McDonald’s locations on May 26 and will include a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, medium Coke – and a special addition – Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces, which while available at McDonald’s South Korea, has never been seen stateside.

“The band has great memories with McDonald’s,” said Big Hit Music, BTS’ record label, in a statement to media. “We’re excited about this collaboration and can’t wait to share the BTS Meal with the world.”

This BTS Meal will ultimately be available in nearly 50 countries across six continents, making it a truly global offering.

“BTS truly lights up the world stage, uniting people across the globe through their music,” said Morgan Flatley, Chief Marketing Officer, McDonald’s USA, in a statement to media. “We’re excited to bring customers even closer to their beloved band in a way only McDonald’s can – through our delicious food – when we introduce the BTS signature order on our menu next month."

While celebrities partnering with fast food chains is nothing new, it looks like things will be rather spicy for K-Pop loving McDonald’s fans this summer!
