A record industry exec claims that it was not Pharrell and Justin after all, but King Push
In a new interview with hot 97’s Ebro Darden, a former record industry executive called Steve Stoute has claimed that rapper Pusha T wrote the jingle for McDonald’s jingle “I’m Lovin’ It”. It was widely previously considered to have been Pharrell and Justin Timberlake, but as you can see in the video below, Stoute claims otherwise.
“You know who did that?” says Stoute. “Pusha T. That’s crazy that Pusha T wrote the song to McDonald’s “I'm Lovin It.” Stoute is CEO of a marketing firm called Translation and was on the show talking about clients and brands that he’d worked with.
