The real name of the “Best Friend” rapper is Diamonté Harper and his first hit single was “Icy Grl”.

Last September, the popularity of the month-long collaboration with Travis Scott – the first time a celebrity’s name has been on the menu in the United States since 1992 – resulted in a shortage of key ingredients across the country. In October, McDonald’s hosted the J Balvin Meal with the award-winning reggaeton artist.

McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski hinted that more celebrity meals are coming on Wednesday during the company’s quarterly earnings call.

“The Famous Orders platform was based on a simple idea: What unites all of our customers, including celebrities, is that everyone has their order from McDonald’s,” said Kempczinski. “The Travis Scott, then J Balvin Famous Orders broke records in the United States. This quarter, the BTS Famous Order took that ambition globally, connecting our marketing, main menu and digital strategies in 50 markets. “

McDonald’s said the meal would be served in “new frozen packaging inspired by its own style.”

The meal will be available to order in restaurants, drive-thru, with McDelivery and on the McDonald’s app using contactless mobile ordering and payment.

McDonald’s said the price of the meal would vary depending on the location.
