Did Viceroy Just Make R. Kelly's 'Ignition (Remix)' Even Better?
Bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce.
Those are the key lyrics in R. Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)," a strong candidate for greatest party jam of all time, and in the latest installment of his Jet Life Series, ace San Francisco remixer Viceroy turns the tune into something that borders on bubblier and more infectious. If it doesn't quite trump the Kells original, it's a worthy addition to your next party playlist, and you can stream the sucker below.
The 2003 Chocolate Factory smash is eighth retro hit that Viceroy, the self-styled "Sultan of Summer," has reworked as part of the Jet Life Series. Previous songs include Will Smith's "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It," Montell Jordan's 'This Is How We Do It," and Nelly's "Ride Wit Me." "I'm the dance game Jimmy Buffett," Viceroy says on his Facebook page, and he's not fronting. "Jams not bangers. Summertime all the time."
