About this Deal
Move over Travis Scott Meal.
McDonald’s launches its next celebrity menu collaboration with award-winning reggaeton artist J Balvin Monday, a day after its popular collaboration with Cactus Jack ended.
The J Balvin Meal arrives at participating restaurants nationwide Monday and is scheduled to be available through Nov. 1, the fast-food chain announced in a news release Monday. It features a Big Mac, fries with ketchup and an Oreo McFlurry.
While the collab meal will be available to order in-restaurant, for carry-out, at the drive-thru and with the McDonald’s app, to get the meal as a deal it'll need to be ordered through the mobile app.

When ordering the meal as an offer on the app, get any size McFlurry for free, McDonald's told USA TODAY. Prices vary by location and the app gives the option to order any-size fries and McFlurry flavors other than Oreo for the meal.
The popularity of the month-long Travis Scott collaboration – the first time a celebrity's name has been on the menu in the U.S. since 1992 – led to shortages of key ingredients across the nation. Originally, the meal was available for $6 in restaurants, carry out, drive-thru and the app, but McDonald's shifted the meal to an app-only promotion to get it at the discounted price.

Last week, Balvin landed 13 nominations for the 2020 Latin Grammys, including two nominations for album of the year and two for record of the year. The Colombian superstar, who revealed in August that he had COVID-19, also was nominated for several 2020 People's Choice Awards from male artist, Latin artist and music video of the year for "UN DÍA" with Dua Lipa and Bad Bunny.
“As a longtime McDonald’s fan, I am excited to join the short list of global icons who have had a meal named in their honor,” Balvin said in the release. “I am looking forward to sharing my signature order with my fans, along with more surprises that are to come with this partnership. ¡Lego!”
