Sprite is paying homage to hip-hop’s 50th anniversary in an unconventional way. The beverage brand recently launched Sprite Lemonade Legacy, a new limited-edition flavor mashing up lemon-lime and lemonade with a splash of strawberry, and is sponsoring Drake’s summer tour. But the nostalgia doesn’t stop there.
A Sweet Trip Down Memory Lane
Sprite tapped iconic hip-hop artists like Nas, Rakim, Latto, and GloRilla to star in a reimagined version of ‘Rapper’s Delight’ by The Sugarhill Gang. The ad will run on TV, streaming services, online, and in movie theaters, catering to all generations of hip-hop fans.
Hundreds of Drops and Exclusive Merch
Over the summer, Sprite is releasing ‘Summer of Drops’ where fans can win hip-hop-inspired prizes. By scanning QR codes on Sprite Lemonade Legacy and original Sprite cans, you’re entered to win merch like signed Polaroids, mics, and t-shirts, as well as once-in-a-lifetime experiences like meeting Drake or winning a lifetime pass to Rolling Loud. Some drops feature behind-the-scenes content with Latto and Rakim.
The nostalgic campaign hits all the right notes, reminding us why hip-hop and Sprite are such an iconic match. Sprite’s ode to hip hop’s golden age with a modern twist is sure to quench your thirst for memories this summer.
