Get your voice warmed up. Popeyes is willing to pay you to sing about your love of that chicken. If you got the chops, you could be singing for your dinner.
While people might still be craving those chicken sandwiches, Popeyes and its infamous jingle is part of pop culture. From the first couple of notes, everyone knows that the “Love that Chicken” jingle can cause a fried chicken craving. Now, singing that jingle can bring some money into your wallet.
Popeyes and New Orleans have a strong connection. As seen with the NOLA Strong box, the quick service chicken restaurant wants to support its communities where it can. This newest promotion gives back to a major part of the New Orleans community, musicians.
Anyone who has visited New Orleans understands that music is part of the city. From the iconic jazz bands to the roar of the crowd during Mardi Gras, music is as essential as food.
Recently, NOLA natives were given the opportunity to sing the “Love that Chicken” jingle for the chance to be featured in commercials and radio. The selected singers will be paid for the performances.
Now the jingle campaign will be available nationwide. According to the brand, musicians can submit their jingle recording via social media. To be considered, submission should use #LoveThatJingle. Selected musicians will be compensated. Additionally, adaptations of the submissions will be used in promotions.
As everyone tries to find positive moments, this idea brings people a little joy. While the jingle is a familiar note, the opportunity it gives to musicians is special. That creative outlet is a moment away from the never ending news cycle. Any moment of brightness is appreciated these days.
It will be interesting to see how creative the musicians take the classic jungle. Maybe a reggae version, a classic version or even a salsa version could be in the future. Everyone loves that chicken and can offer their take on the song.
Are you ready to sing for your dinner? Popeyes is here to give all those musicians an opportunity to sing again.
