"Trying to Be Cool" (remix ft. R. Kelly)

BY Alex HudsonPublished Aug 14, 2013

Just yesterday (August 13), we reported that Phoenix were teaming up with R&B lothario R. Kelly for a remix of "Trying to Be Cool." We didn't have to wait long for the pay-off, since the remix has now hit the web.

The remix sounds like exactly what you'd expect from these collaborators — that is, a lushly melodic pop rock tune featuring R. Kelly crooning about hollering at the hunnies in the club. In classic Kells fashion, he reminds us that this is a remix at the 2:40 mark (and again at the end).

The original version of this track comes from Phoenix's album Bankrupt!, which arrived earlier this year.
