End Music Discovery: Phoenix Get Remixed by R. Kelly

Aug 15th | categories: Music

Imagine the ball of stress growing in a rumbly stomach as the days/minutes/seconds tick by before a headling performance at Coachella. Then crank things up a notch by inviting a superstar from another genre to perform. Finally, take that nervous energy to low earth orbit when said superstar is late to the show and you've never even met the guy, let alone rehearsed...

Phoenix's 2013 included all of this. I sorta wanna barf just thinking about that stress, but when you invite someone like R. Kelly to join you for an onstage, live mashup, that's the tension you bring on yourself.

After a well received collaboration the two camps meet again. Kelly tackled remixing "Trying to be Cool". He didn't just add a hip hop beat and some backing "uhhs", nope, he wrote lyrics and gave it his own diamond-covered-microphone touch. Leave a simple "like" or "dislike" comment below.
