Music and food though an odd couple at first glance is one of the best things that ever happened to the music industry. How so? As you can see, a majority of songs that captured our hearts through the years have food in it. Here’s a quick run through: “My Boy Lollipop” by Millie Small (1964), “Red Red Wine” by Neil Diamond/ UB40 (1967/ 1983), “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard (1987) and the list goes on. This is proof that strange pairings work, and that food is something we can all easily attach ourselves to regardless of what diet we adhere to.

What if we take music and food’s relationship to the next level? What would happen then? Well, wonder no longer because we now have a Jack Harlow meal from KFC. Released last June 6th, via their website and mobile app. Now music fans and food connoisseurs alike can now experience the “finger lickin good” Jack Harlow style. 

So, what’s in the meal you may ask? Well, we’ve got that covered! Here’s what you’re getting: a KFC Spicy Chicken Sandwich, Mac and Cheese, Secret Recipe Fries, a side of Ranch and a nice coke lemonade. Get this, it’s also served in a custom Jack Harlow x KFC Packaging. Whoa there! That’s some “First Class” dinning right there. 

As yummy as this all sounds, this collaboration isn’t just a promo or fanfare. It’s actually a nostalgia trip carefully curated by Jack Harlow himself paying homage to his roots in Louisville Kentucky. A culmination of all his childhood favorites, wrapped in neat package. It’s his way of giving us a sneak peek as to how he was as a kid and the simple things he enjoyed back then. A way back machine of sorts to a time when his name wasn’t up in lights just yet. 

To an extent, it’s also a reminder for all of us that the artists and personalities we admire are real people too. They don’t just exist on stage or in the comfort of our homes through our chosen devices. In fact, they’re very much like us, albeit given that responsibility of being a public figure.
