Flo’s ultimate song of the summer – affectionately titled “Anything Flows” – features rising stars Kari Faux, 2Rare and Maiya the Don, and is filled with verses inspired by Slurpee that’ll leave you craving the beloved beverage.
Available now on video and song streaming platforms Spotify and YouTube® , “Anything Flows” was developed in partnership with Dentsu, led by Dentsu Creative and dentsu X, produced by Nova Wav and comes complete with a Y2K-inspired music video directed by Warren Fu.
But the flow doesn’t stop here. Fans and up-and-coming artists can showcase their own musical talents by submitting lyrics to the track’s open verse by dueting Slurpee’s TikTok or remixing the Instagram Reel now through July 12 and tagging #FlowLikeSlurpee. Entries will be judged on musicality, lyricism, execution, clarity and tone – and the top verse inspired by the Slurpee drink will land a spot on the song’s remix to be released later this summer.*
“I am a true ride or die for Slurpee and couldn’t pass up collaborating with them to release the iciest track of the summer,” said Flo Milli. “I’m ready to show everyone how they too can Flo… like Slurpee. I could not wait to get into the studio with these talented artists and whip together the ultimate Slurpee anthem. We know our fans will vibe with it.”
“We’re taking a beat this summer to celebrate self-made artists, producers and designers – while also spotlighting our customers’ creativity through the Anything Flows open-verse contest,” said Marissa Jarratt, 7-Eleven Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing & Sustainability Officer. “From the Slurpee track of the summer to a jewelry collaboration inspired by Slurpee, our customers have a number of fun ways to show off their love for this weird and wonderful frozen treat all summer long.”
