R. Kelly Remixes Phoenix Single

R. Kelly is giving Phoenix the remix treatment. The R&B veteran has recorded a remix to “Trying to Be Cool,” a single off the French band’s album Bankrupt!

The track is set to premiere this week. “Got something special coming for ya’ll this week. Stay tuned.. #ImJustTryingToBeCool,” tweeted Kellz.

Phoenix previewed some of the lyrics on Twitter: “I’m gonna roll to the club, I’m gonna holla at the honeyzzz.”

The band brought out Kellz to perform a mash-up of “Ignition” and their single “1901” at Coachella in April.

Kellz has been working on his own album Black Panties. The first single, “My Story” featuring 2 Chainz, premiered last month.
