Pusha T And Pharell Are Responsible For McDonald's Iconic "I'm Lovin' It" Jingle

Pusha T mcdonalds

You’ve all heard the McDonald’s commercials with the iconic “I’m Lovin’ It” jingle. What you might not have known is one of television’s most memorable commercial catch phrases was written by non other than, Pusha T. 

It was revealed on a Hot 97 interview with hip-hop advertising guru’s Steve Stoute & Kaz that back around 2004 Pharell was working on a song for McDonald’s and recruited his frequent collaborator Pusha T to write the McDonald’s new advertising campaign. The original song included an extended version with Pusha spiting a verse… We never would have thought G.O.O.D. Music’s president was behind “I’m Lovin’ It,” and it’s hilarious to imagine him writing the song. If anything this is a testament to how great and diverse of a songwriter Pusha really is. 

Pusha's long anticipated King Push album is coming soon and he just dropped the first single "Drug Dealers Anonymous" featuring Jay-Z.  

Chance The Rapper Gives Incredible Interview Ft. Unreleased Demos, Discussing Work With Kanye, Mixtapes With Childish Gambino & Jay Electronica

Chance The Rapper Zane Lowe

Chance The Rapper recently released his much anticipated, third full-length project Coloring Book, and has continued to deliver for fans since the album’s release. He hosted a “Magnificent Coloring World” event in which fans were taken on school buses to a warehouse turned into the perfect environment for a Chance-inspired listening party. Not only will Coloring Book be the first streaming-exclusive album to chart on Billboard 200, but it’s been very well-received from fans as every single lyric off the album has been tweeted, and there is even a coloring book inspired by lyrics off the album.

Zane Lowe has a knack for bringing out the best interviews from artists, and he’s done this yet again with Chance The Rapper. Chance once again shows off his maturity as he delivers a genuine interview displaying his humble, honest nature. 

Right off the bat, Chance stopped the interview to take a FaceTime call with his baby mama and said “Now I can’t remember what I was saying, she’s just so gorgeous.” 

He goes on to talk working with Kanye, including saying he turned down a deal with him but has continued to work with him and the two of them are working on a project called “Good Ass Job.” He also speaks on the vocal recording process on “All We Got” and mentions that they used the same technique “in Frank’s album.” Chance also talks on his faith and transitioning to gospel inspired music, plays some unreleased demos off Kanye’s TLOP, gives insight on the challenges of releasing free music as an independent artist, shares he might have a mixtape with Jay Electronica coming soon, and says the Childish Gambino collab mixtape will indeed see the light of day.

Watch Major Lazer’s Historical Performance For Half A Million People in Cuba

Watch Major Lazer’s Historical Performance For Half A Million People in Cuba - Featured Image

Over the past year Diplo has changed the game of pop music with his electronic infused radio hits and earned a Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic album with his side project Jack Ü alongside Skrillex. With "Lean On" - which now has over a billion views - we saw Major Lazer bridge the gap between countries and show the power of the global music market. The music trailblazer now might just be better off changing his name to Diplomat seeing as he recently ventured to Cuba to help build a newfound relationship with the previously embargoed country.  

When we first heard Major Lazer was set to play in Cuba we knew it would be massive, but this turned out to be even more special than we could have imagined. Performing alongside Jillionaire and Walshy Fire as Major Lazerthe trio managed to attract an astounding half a million people to the event that was symbolically held just outside the U.S. Embassy in Havana. Shockingly, due to Cuba's previously strict isolation, most attendees had never even heard Major Lazer's music, but Diplo once again proved music's universal appeal as fans can be seen going absolutely nuts. 

Before the historic event, Diplo met with Charlie Rose of CBS News to discuss the cultural and political ramifications of the event, stating, "It's the first time they're getting connected [to the world]." If this wasn't enough we can also expect a new project from Diplo and Skrillex's Jack Ü as soon as April. Diplo candidly confessed, "Before I came down to you, I was sitting on my computer editing some new songs for the Jack Ü project, because we want to put something out around Coachella." 

You can watch the interview in full below as well as some footage from the revolutionary event. 

 

MUCHAS GRACIAS A TODOS NUESTROS AMIGOS EN CUBA POR EL RECIBIMIENTO LLENO DE CARIÑO Y AMOR QUE NOS DIERON. ESTAMOS ETERNAMENTE AGRADECIDOS CON USTEDES. LA HABANA VIVIRÁ EN NUESTROS CORAZONES PARA SIEMPRE.
