We've all been there. Sitting around listening to legitimately awesome French pop group Phoenix and thinking, you know what this song needs? Some R Kelly all over it.

Wait. Nobody thought that? Well, it's kind of a shame, because the two go surprisingly well together! Kelly plays with the song a bunch, adding an entire verse as well as adding lead and backing vocals all over the place to the extent that it feels completely natural in the track.

This remix has come about after Kelly joined Phoenix on stage for a stint at Coachella earlier this year to sing some of his tracks over the likes of '1901' and 'Chloroform' to rapturous praise. All I know is, I really love this remix. It might even be the remix to Ignition on R Kelly's career.

I'm so sorry about making you read that joke.
