The “Best Friend” rapper’s real name is Diamonté Harper and her first hit single was “Icy Grl.”

Last September, the popularity ofthemonth-longTravis 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 ingredientsacross the nation.In October, McDonald’s hadtheJ Balvin Mealwith the award-winning reggaeton artist.

McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski hinted that more celebrity meals were coming Wednesday during the company’s quarterly earnings call.

“The Famous Orders platform was based on a simple idea: what unites all our customers, including famous celebrities, is everyone has their go-to McDonald’s order,” Kempczinski said. “The Travis Scott, then J Balvin Famous Orders broke records in the US. This quarter, the BTS Famous Order took that ambition globally, connecting our marketing, core menu and digital strategies in 50 markets.”

McDonald’s said the meal will be served in “icy new packaging inspired by her own style.”

The meal will be available to order in restaurants, the drive-thru,with McDeliveryand on the McDonald’s app using contactless mobile order and pay.

McDonald’s said the meal’s price will vary based on location.
