America's now third-largest burger chain is apologizing for its Mary J. Blige ad, where the R&B singer stereotypically sings about Burger King's latest chicken snack wraps.

The AP reports that Burger King is apologizing to the singer and her fans; the ad was pulled Tuesday over a reported music licensing issue. Wednesday, Burger King explained that the ad was unfinished.

Blige reportedly released a statement saying she understood her fans' concern over the ad, and would never release an unfinished product intentionally.

The original 30-second spot is still available to view on TMZ.
