Robert Sylvester Kelly, better known as R. Kelly or the King of R&B, is recognized as one of the most successful R&B artists of all time selling over 54 million albums worldwide.
One of R Kelly’s hits, “Ignition (Remix),” which peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 2 and was later ranked in Rolling Stone’s 500 greatest songs of all time in 2010, is viewed as one of his signature songs.
Well, a YouTuber musician named James Dalby decided to take a swing at covering “Ignition (Remix),” but took a more soulful acoustic route in his rendition and I have to say I dig it.
Also, just for reference, R. Kelly has had his ups and downs with scandal in his career and if you haven’t watched Dave Chappelle’s remix of the song on the Chappelle Show, which R. Kelly did not find funny, it’s worth the Google search.
