Megan Thee Stallion is partnering with Popeyes chicken to launch "Megan Thee Stallion Hottie Sauce" and merchandise.
Megan's new Popeyes Hottie Sauce will be available in all Popeyes restaurants locations on October 19, according to Today.com.
Megan's new dipping sauce will top the Popeyes' spicy chicken sandwich that went viral 2 years ago.
The Hottie Sauce is made with honey, cider vinegar and Aleppo pepper, according to Popeyes website. The Hottie Sauce features a "sweet, yet bold flavor with a hint of spice, inspired by Megan's sassy personality," says Popeyes.
The "WAP" rapper reportedly invested her own money in a Popeyes franchise restaurant in her native Houston.
Additionally, she plans to make a six-figure donation to Houston Random Acts of Kindness, an organization that promotes "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," said Megan Thee Stallion in a statement.
"Teaming up with Popeyes is such a milestone in my journey and evolution as an entrepreneur. 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."
Megan's collaboration with Popeyes is the latest fast food brand campaign featuring rappers and pop culture stars.
Travis Scott and Saweetie have teamed up with McDonald's for promotional meals and clothing lines in the past year.

Once again, comedic actress Tiffany Haddish proves she can't hold her liquor. A friend assisted the stumbling drunk star to an Uber. Tiffany, who is dating rapper/actor Common, has previously said she wants to adopt a child. But adoption officials will likely take into considering her history of drinking and psychological problems.

Lil Nas X reacted to the backlash over his pregnancy photo shoot to celebrate the impending delivery of his new album, Montero.
The "Old Town Road" rapper strapped on a prosthetic belly to symbolize the birth of his "baby" on Sept. 17.
He claimed he came up with the concept while listening to Megan Thee Stallion's verse on his new song "Dolla Sign Slime."
However, YouTube beauty influencer James Charles previously pulled a similar stunt, wearing a prosthetic belly in a photo shoot.
James, 22, faced backlash from women who say the YouTuber trivialized the pregnancy experience because men can't get pregnant.
Now LNX is facing backlash from outraged and confused social media users.
Comedian Donnell Rawlings commented in a since-deleted post:
"I'm with freedom of whatever, but at this point Lil Nas is f---ing with the minds of kids. What are your thoughts, how do I explain this shit to my son?"
One user responded:
"boys have been putting basketballs under their shirt to look pregnant since 1891. Your son will be alright."
LNX responded to one critic, saying:
"One day y'all will learn I am not a representation of anyone but Lil Nas X."
A judge has given Tory Lanez one last chance to stay out of jail.
The Canadian-born rapper's bail was increased from $190,000 to $250,000 after he appeared at the same event as ex-girlfriend Megan Thee Stallion last month.
Lanez, real name Daystar Peterson, was allegedly within 100 yards of Megan when rapper DaBaby brought him out onstage at Rolling Loud festival in Miami.
Prosecutors filed a motion asking a judge to hold Tory in contempt of court for violating a restraining order by getting too close to the "Savage" rapper.

However, the judge let the rapper off with a warning to stay away from Megan, according to TMZ. The judge also modified his bail conditions to specifically prohibit him from attending any events where Megan might be.
That means he has to check ahead of time to see if she is scheduled to attend an event that he is planning to attend. If she is there -- even if its a paid gig for Tory -- he has to cancel his appearance.
The judge also said if he violates the restraining order again, he will be remanded into custody. This is his last and final warning.
Tory was charged with felony assault last year for allegedly shooting Megan in the foot following a party in Los Angeles.

Prosecutors say aspiring rapper Tory Lanez violated a restraining order requiring him to stay away from Megan Thee Stallion.
Lanez, real name Daystar Peterson, was allegedly within 100 yards of Megan when rapper DaBaby brought him out onstage at Rolling Loud festival in Miami last month.
Prosecutors filed a motion asking a judge to hold Lanez in contempt of court for violating a restraining order by getting too close to the "Savage" rapper.

Sources tell TMZ that Lanez didn't even see his ex-girlfriend at the music festival. However prosecutors insist that Lanez, who was charged with felony assault for allegedly shooting Megan in the foot last summer, was within 100 yards of her.
100 yards is the length of a football field. That's sufficient distance to file documents to revoke Lanez's bail and send him back to jail.
A hearing on the contempt motion is set for next week, TMZ reports.

Lanez was recently spotted out and about with a mystery woman.
He was discovered by hip-hop/reggae singer Sean Kingston. He signed to record producer Benny Blanco's Mad Love Records in 2015.
Lanez is best known for his debut studio album, I Told You, which dropped in 2016. His fifth studio album Daystar, which debuted at number 10 on the Billboard 200, featured responses to the allegations that he shot Megan, real name Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, 26.
An American sign language interpreter for rapper Megan Thee Stallion is under fire for her overtly explicit interpretation of Megan and Cardi B single "WAP" at Lollapalooza.
Megan was the headline act at Lollapalooza at Grant Park in Chicago festival on Saturday.
The 26-year-old rapper dressed in a rock-n-roll-inspired leotard as she performed tracks from her new album Good News.
Video of the woman's explicit interpretation for the hearing impaired went viral on social media, according to Eurweb.com.
The original Tiktok video has been viewed over 1 million times.
The sign language was particularly offensive when Megan rapped.
"I wanna gag, I wanna choke. I want you to touch that lil' dangly thing. That swing in the back of my throat. My head game is fire, p****** Dasani. It's going in dry and it's coming out soggy."
Ticket holders were so shocked by the woman's sign language that they walked out of the show.
Other ASL interpreter's defended the woman for her very graphic interpretation.
The interpreter, who goes by @kelly4access on Instagram, responded to the criticism by trying to deflect the attention.
"Thanks for the love on my page from hearing people but I'm just an interpreter passionate about providing access to a community I love and have learned everything from," she wrote.
"If you're new to my page you'll quickly see this is a space meant to amplify the work of Deaf creators and to provide access to social media content for the Deaf community. I'm a hearing interpreter so I do not teach. In this post I will direct you to some amazing Deaf ASL teachers, Deaf influencers, and other Deaf content creators."
Megan Thee Stallion made history as the first rapper to cover Sports Illustrated's highly anticipated, "woke" Swimsuit edition.
"REAL SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SWIMSUIT EDITION COVER MODEL SH*T!!!" she wrote on Instagram.
"Thee first female rapper on the cover of @si_swimsuit. I want to thank all the strong women in my life who inspired me to love my body and live my best hot girl life. It means the world to me to be on this cover DREAM COME TRUE!! #SISwim21."
Megan is one of three cover stars on the 2021 Swimsuit issue.
Tennis champ Naomi Osaka is on one cover, and the mag's first Black male-to-female trans, Leyna Bloom is on the other.
The "Savage" rapper's impressive curves are stuffed into a zippered nude bikini that's 2 sizes too small. The bikini is available in her new Fashion Nova swimwear collection ($39.99).
"We have three inherently different cover models that come together to tell a story rooted in female empowerment, setting a reminder that beauty comes in many forms," said SI Swim's editor-in-chief, MJ Day, who hailed Megan as "a magnetic powerhouse taking the world by storm."
Megan's cover is not the high-budget cover that fans come to expect from Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit edition.
Still, it's an achievement that Megan can be proud of. No other female rapper has graced the Swimsuit edition.
The only celebrity to come close was Beyonce, but her cover didn't sell well and she wasn't asked to grace the cover again.
Megan Thee Stallion's amazing body proportions will be showcased on the cover of Sports Illustrated's 2021 Swimsuit issue.
The "WAP" rapper will be among the models gracing the 2021 cover, according to New York Post's Page Six.
A source told Page Six Megan is one of the hottest rappers out right now, thanks to her raunchy collaboration with Cardi B.
"She's the biggest star [right now], so it's a no-brainer and they love surprises," the source said, referring to the magazine's male readers.
While it is rare for a non-model to grace the cover of the Swimsuit edition, Sports Illustrated has been evolving into a "woke" publication for years now.
Megan isn't the first artist to appear on the SI cover. Studio singer Beyonce posed on the cover of the 2007 SI Music issue when she was at her peak.
A woman who claims to be Megan Thee Stallion's ex lover is coming forward with details of their alleged romance.
Instagram model Yasmin Estrada, pictured left, took to IG Live on Tuesday night to share torrid details about her alleged ex-girlfriend.
Yasmin Estrada, who was reportedly drunk, started pouring hot tea in her IG Live. Surprisingly, Megan was among the millions listening to Yasmin. MTO News confirmed that Megan was also commenting on Yasmin's Live.
The busty Latina said she and the "WAP" rapper broke up because Megan, who is male-identified, refused to be faithful to her.
Yasmin explained that Megan Thee Stallion, who is bisexual, began sleeping with male rappers before her rap records took off.
"Megan was in love with d**k more than she was in love with me," said Yasmin.
Yasmin still lusts after Megan and she often writes subliminal messages to her on Instagram. In one post, Yasmin wrote: "You used to be texting me, checking me, calling me your slime."
Megan, who was raised by a single mom, has previously confessed to dipping her toe in the lady pond.
Yasmin and Megan are still friends, and Megan generously lavishes gifts on her ex. But the curvaceous stripper says she would prefer to give her ex a private lap dance whenever she's in town.
Megan Thee Stallion is giving away $1 million worth of stock to teach fans how to "build your own empire" with her new "Investing for Hotties" initiative.
The voluptuous rapper's fans helped her to build wealth and now she wants to return the favor.
"Me and my thriving empire, Hot Girl Enterprises, have teamed up with Cash App to teach you everything I learned on the way up about money and how you can build your own empire.
"Buying stocks isn't only for the big players. Anyone can start with as little as $1. Putting in a little money and seeing how it moves is a great way to learn about the stock market and start building up a portfolio."
Fans who hope to win stocks can comment on her latest Instagram post with "$cashtag" for a chance to win the stocks.

The "WAP" hitmaker, who was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine last year, urged investors to start small, adding, "With Cash App, you can buy and sell small pieces of stock called fractional shares, and ease your way in nice and slow.
"Buying stocks seems complicated, but really it's a pretty simple process. The more you educate yourself the more equipped you'll be to navigate investing. With my knowledge and your hustle, you'll have your own empire in no time."
