This Rapper Wrote the McDonald’s Jingle “I’m Lovin’ It”

You may remember the McDonald’s jingle, “I’m Lovin’ It,” from a couple years ago. Justin Timberlake is singing on the Pharrell-produced track, which lead many to believe the latter wrote and produced the fast food chain’s slogan.

However, in a recent interview with Hot 97’s Ebro Darden, former music executive turned CEO of Translation marketing firm, Steve Stoute, revealed a certain rapper wrote the song. It turns out Pusha T actually wrote the “I’m Lovin’ It” jingle.

During the interview, when Darden initially gives Pharrell credit for the jingle, Stoute reveals the surprising news.
