Megan Thee Stallion Teams Up with Popeyes on New 'Hottie Sauce,' Merchandise and More

The new sweet and spicy hot sauce will be offered as a dipping sauce or on top of Popeyes' beloved chicken sandwich

Megan Thee Stallion and Popeyes' new collaboration certainly is "Savage."

On Thursday, the 26-year-old rapper and the Louisiana chicken chain announced they were teaming up in an epic way, with a range of joint ventures starting with a new hot sauce.

Beginning October 19, customers nationwide and around the globe can spice up their Popeyes Chicken Sandwich or chicken nuggets with Megan Thee Stallion Hottie Sauce — a sweet and bold sauce with a hint of spice, inspired by Megan's sassy personality, according to a press release.

Megan worked closely with the Popeyes' culinary team to develop the flavor, which is a mix of honey, cider vinegar, and Aleppo pepper.

It will be offered among the chain's lineup of side dipping sauces or on Popeyes beloved chicken sandwich, marking the first time Popeyes has released a new version of its signature menu item.

That's just the beginning of the partnership, though. Meghan and Popeyes will also release a line of co-branded merchandise, its first collection dropping at noon on Oct. 19.

Dubbed "Thee Heat," the items include bikinis, long sleeve shirts, hats, tumblers and Popeyes chicken tenders plush dog toys. Like the hot sauce, all are designed after the three-time Grammy winner's fiery personality, dynamic presence and bold individual aesthetic.

Popeyes Rewards members (or anyone who enrolls in the program before Oct. 18) will be the first to receive information about the limited edition items.

Two other merch releases are expected throughout the month of November.

If all that weren't enough, Megan and Popeyes have taken their relationship to the next level, with Megan becoming a franchise owner of her very own Popeyes restaurant.

She's also giving back with Popeyes, the two making a six-figure donation to Houston Random Acts of Kindness — an organization with a mission to promote empathy and compassion while encouraging selfless concern for the welfare of others in the Houston community.

"I'm appreciative of Popeyes commitment to empowering Black women and look forward to opening Popeyes Restaurants," Megan Thee Stallion said in a statement.

"Teaming up with Popeyes is such a milestone in my journey and evolution as an entrepreneur," she added. "I've always been a fan of the Popeyes brand and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to join the brand and help create the new Megan Thee Stallion Hottie Sauce for their line-up."
