Fans of Taco Bell's Mexican Pizza can thank rapper Doja Cat for its comeback.
Buzz surrounding the return of Taco Bell's Mexican Pizza dates back to March when Doja Cat uploaded a freestyle jingle about the discontinued menu item.
The TikTok video went viral, leading social media users to make an apparent demand that Taco Bell bring back the Mexican Pizza.
In April, during her performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Doja Cat announced onstage that she brought back Taco Bell's Mexican Pizza.
The restaurant chain used footage from the event as its official promo for the highly-demanded menu item, announcing its Mexican Pizza returns May 19.
The return of the Mexican Pizza doesn't end at the menu. Following up Doja Cat's Coachella announcement, Taco Bell took it a step further, announcing Mexican Pizza: The Musical.
The production is set to feature Dolly Parton starring opposite Doja Cat. Mexican Pizza: The Musical presented by Taco Bell's Live Mas Productions will premiere May 26 on TikTok.

After 18 months since it was discontinued, the Mexican Pizza returns to Taco Bell menus. As Doja Cat would put it – on May 19, fans can get a shell with the sauce and cheese, and eat, eat, eat their pizza with refried beans.
