Asian-American artist, producer and Midi master Shawn Wasabi returns today with his largest brand partnership to date, revealing he’s been tapped as the face of McDonald’s’ 2019 holiday campaign. The 30-second spot features Wasabi sampling McDonald’s new Bacon BBQ Burger and Snickerdoodle McFlurry, combining his love for food with his passion for making sweet beats on the Midi.

The commercial follows his latest two food-centric releases including “SNACK”, the addictive pop hit featuring vocals from Raychel Jay and an appearance from world-class chef Roy Choi, and “MARBLE TEA”, the follow-up track to his multi-million-viewed viral video where he famously produces a track using bubble tea pearls.
In a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the making of his McDonald’s spot, Shawn says: “This commercial is surrounding one of my favorite times of the year – the holidays. It’s usually a really busy time, you know? You’ve got shows, family events, and friends to get to, but that’s where the Bacon BBQ Burger and Snickerdoodle McFlurry come in. It’s a quick and delicious option that allows me more time to get back to my passion.”
Earlier this year, Shawn joined the FACET Records family, launched by Warner Records in collaboration with leading A&R executive Katie Vinten and globally-renowned songwriter Justin Tranter. Having released two successful tracks on the label since, Shawn shows no signs of slowing down into the New Year, with more new music and unique uploads to come.
