A fast-food icon meets a musical icon this Christmas as Mariah Carey partners with McDonald’s to take Christmas up an octave.
The All I Want For Christmas is You singer has long been hailed as the Queen of Christmas—with her 1994 track popular every year, and hitting number one on Billboard in 2019—and she’s still working hard to bring festive cheer.
Swapping out Santa Claus for Ronald McDonald, Mariah has partnered with the fast-food chain to offer The Mariah Menu, a collection of free daily deals with a $1 minimum spend.
The free items include a variety of classic sandwiches such as the Big Mac, cheeseburger or McChicken as well as popular breakfast items, sweet treats and McNuggets.

The promo, which will run from December 13 to 24, is available at participating McDonald's nationwide.
Speaking about her festive, fast food collaboration, Mariah Carey said in a press release, "Some of my favorite memories with my kids are our family trips to McDonald's, and of course, each of us has our go-to order. Mine is the Cheeseburger, and I get it with extra pickles.”
“Bringing together some of our favorite food from McDonald's with my all-time favorite season is a holiday wish come true."
"Mariah goes with the holidays like ketchup and fries, so we couldn't think of a better partner to help us celebrate the upcoming season," said Jennifer Healan, vice president, US marketing, brand content and engagement of McDonald's USA.
"Just like McDonald's brings people around the table with their favorite orders, Mariah's music connects us all during this time of the year. We're so excited to team up to bring even more holiday cheer to our fans."
This isn’t the first time McDonald’s has paired up with a star to make their own kind of music. They previously launched limited-edition meals with the rapper Saweetie and Korean boyband BTS.
If this is the entrée, then Mariah fans are getting an extra special sweet treat this Christmas as she’s also released a new Christmas track.
Fall in Love at Christmas features Khalid and Kirk Franklin and was voted Billboard’s track of the week on November 5.
