McDonald's partners with K-pop group BTS for latest celebrity meal

It will roll out in nearly 50 countries, including Singapore, South Korea, India and the Philippines.

McDonald's has teamed up with K-pop group BTS for a new celebrity meal that will roll out across stores globally starting next month.

The BTS Meal consists of Chicken McNuggets, fries and a drink, as well as sweet chilli and Cajun dipping sauces inspired by recipes from the fast food giant’s South Korean unit.

The new collaboration, which follows the company's previous partnerships with U.S. rapper Travis Scott and Colombian singer J. Balvin, will arrive in 49 countries, including Singapore, South Korea, India and the Philippines.

"The band have great memories with McDonald's. We're excited about this collaboration and can't wait to share the BTS Meal with the world," BTS' record label, Bighit Music, said in a statement.

"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," McDonald's US chief marketing officer Morgan Flatley added.
