Phoenix And R. Kelly's 'Trying To Be Cool' Remix Matches 'Ignition' Maestro With Indie-Rock Outfit
Hot and fresh out the kitchen, it's the remix to "Trying To Be Cool."
In perhaps the most unlikely team-up of the year, R. Kelly has joined forces with Phoenix to hit the refresh button on the French indie-rock band's "Bankrupt!" track. The remix marks another collaboration between the two acts following their joint Coachella performance in April.
The new version doesn't sound drastically different, but it's worth a listen just to hear R. Kelly imbue a soulfulness into the indie-pop track. Listen and decide whether the "Ignition" mastermind has done right by Phoenix.
