McDonald’s keeps the celebration going this Black Music Month with another fresh collab with Hip Hop/R&B artist, Derek King. And if you want the special recipe, you'll have to read until the end!

Sip, Celebrate, Repeat

McDonald’s has a longstanding commitment to celebrating culture and amplifying diverse voices. One element I love about this campaign is that Derek King is an independent artist. He talks about how important it is for him to be an example to other aspiring artists—that there's space and opportunity for any artist to pursue their dreams and find success in the music industry on their own. It's partnerships like this with McDonald's that not only create incredible content, but also make a big impact for the artist; it's a collab that true fans celebrate for him—go read through the comments on his social posts and you'll see what I mean.

Dunk Game On Point

Derek King x McDonald'sOne of Derek's favorite hobbies is basketball, and it's very apparent in how comfortable he was 'shooting' the campaign content. Ha . . . get it?! Because he's good at shooting the basketball, but also he was a natural during the campaign shoot?! 😂 But fr fr — I'm gonna be practicing that pass the next time I'm on the court. 🏀

I'm not gonna lie, as I was watching some of the campaign content, Derek King seemed to be channeling those Lebron vs Howard and Bird vs Jordan vibes . . . Derek's dunking was more my speed though!

His Recipe for Success 🍔

If you’re wondering how to recreate Derek’s favorite McDonald’s combo, you’re in luck! Here’s a simple guide to elevate your McDonald’s experience:
