It's easy to look back at Mary's ill-fated commercial jingle and tell yourself—nah, convince yourself—that it was a well-executed joke. That there was no way the Queen of hip hop and R&B would sell her soul to Burger King and sing a song about chicken while literally shucking and jiving. No fucking way.
But that's not what happened.
It wasn't a joke. Ms. Blige was dead-ass serious when she arrived to the set, stood on a table, and belted out that the B.K.'s new wrap was made up of "Crispy chicken, fresh lettuce, three cheeses, ranch dressing."
Sure, it's not a real R&B song, but come on: This is might be the most unintentionally hilarious song ever created in any genre of recorded music. And we're saying this knowing full and well that Mary J. Blige made a song in which she made up nearly half the words in the chorus. While we can all collectively try to forget that this ever happened, we won't ever forgive. Though, we will all laugh. —Damien Scott
