Phoenix & R. Kelly Live Mashup

What happens when you mashup a classic with a classic- nostalgia overload!

Last night at Coachella during Phoenix’s set, can you believe that none other than Mr. R. Kelly comes out of hiding to mashup his classic, “Ignition” over their classic “1901”?! I must say, this is probably one of the weirdest but coolest live collabs I’ve ever seen. I do love “1901” a lot, and wished there was a little bit more of an even mix to it, but then again if R. Kelly comes to do one song then why not right. I was singing along all the way through, even when R. Kelly threw in a bit from “I’m A Flirt” and Phoenix threw in some of “Cholroform” from their new album to be released later this month. I love nostalgia all the way, so good stuff!

BONUS: Here’s one of my favourite “1901” mashups with “Young Folks” by Peter, Bjorn and John called “Nineteen Hundred and One Folks”.
