So there was a bit of an uproar over Burger King’s new ad for their chicken wraps, in which Mary J Blige warbles on about how tasty they are. For many, the commercial was lacking in taste, with many in the African American community concerned that it perpetuated stereotypes. Anyway, Burger King has since pulled the ad, although citing licensing issues as the reason….. Riiiiiight. A few websites still have it up, so let google be your friend.
In the meantime however, Burger King should seriously consider using the above video for their campaign. Sam Sparro, Vula Malinga, and Brendan Reilly took to Youtube to deliver a haunting rendition of the song, with so much raw emotion you can just feel the passion all three of them share for poultry. It’s astounding that they have managed to encapsulate all of this in such a short performance, coupled with some of the fiercest choreography this side of Beyonce’s Love On Top video.
Great show at Highline Ballroom in NYC! Can’t wait for the new album to be released state-side.

This is pretty rad. Seeing Sam Saturday night at Highline Ballroom. New Yorkers, I have extra tickets if you want to go!
The ability to compose an entirely unique masterpiece. Snowflake music.
Play together, some or all at once. Any order, whenever you want.
This is magic.

If I learned anything from The Notebook, it’s that relationships are about commitment, no matter the odds. When your true love leaves, write 365 letters and then build her a house. Then when she…
