Phoenix R. Kelly - Trying To Be Cool

French band and Lolla 2013 headliners, Phoenix had hinted not long ago that they’d be possibly record something with Chicago’s own R. Kelly… And now we’ve got a collaboration between the two.

Kelly and Phoenix have remixed the latter’s “Trying To Be Cool,” keeping it’s core sound but with the Chicago R&B singer holding chorus duties and even adding a verse.

The French and Chicago have another connection to add to the long list of collaborations (history reference!)… When it comes to these mega music festivals, you’re bound to witness some sort of magic happen and last night was no exception when Phoenix brought out R&B vet R. Kelly to perform his “Ignition.” The hit song was set to Phoenix’s own riff to their song “1901.” For as much as it is weird to think up this collaboration, it is justifiably cool.
