(Chicago, IL – Wednesday, October 21) – As fans enjoy the J Balvin Meal in restaurants nationwide, they now have a chance to keep a piece of the collaboration forever. McDonald’s has partnered with NTWRK, an ecommerce marketplace, to serve up three iced-out chains commemorating The J Balvin Meal – including a Big Mac, World Famous Fries® and an OREO® McFlurry®. Starting today, NTWRK will host three separate drawings during which the randomly selected participants can purchase one of the 14-karat gold, diamond-encrusted necklaces, designed by luxury jeweler Saint Jewels.
The necklaces were inspired by J Balvin’s love of fashion and accessories, and he wore an identical set during the making of the commercial featuring his signature McDonald’s order. The Big Mac chain showcases 2.4 carats of brown, white, champagne and yellow diamonds, celebrating the fan-favorite sandwich. The 14-karat yellow gold represents the World Famous Fries, complete with 600 pavé-set rubies and 1 carat of yellow diamonds as a nod to the Golden Arches. The McFlurry chain features approximately 1,100 set stones of white full and single-cut diamonds, black diamonds and mixed-toned natural blue vivid sapphires and enhanced blue diamonds, totaling over 14 carats. The selected participants of each drawing will take each chain home for a drawing fee of just $10.
Fans can enter the drawing and see the winners of each chain be revealed live during episodes on NTWRK’s IOS and Android app. Entry for all participants is free and the $10 drawing fee will only be charged to the winners, who will be notified via the NTWRK app of their selection.

Hailed by Billboard as "the biggest breakout act Latin music has seen in many years" and Pitchfork as "the face of modern Reggaeton," Balvin is leading a second generation of Musica Urbana stars that have propelled Latin music to an unprecedented global embrace. His latest album, Colores, saw both critical acclaim and commercial success. With "Blanco," "Morado" and "Rojo" going #1, J Balvin brought his total to 27 songs earning the #1 spot on the Latin Airplay Charts over the course of his career. Most recently, his collaboration with Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny, and Tainy, "UN DÍA (ONE DAY)," grabbed the title, garnered over 400M streams and is RIAA certified 6X Platinum. With his music and impact on the culture, Balvin has cemented himself as not only a leader of Reggaeton but as a torchbearer of the new state of Latin music by continuously expanding the limits of the genre and paving the way for "la nueva escuela."
