Phoenix: “Trying To Be Cool” ft. R. Kelly

with No Comments

There has never been a collaboration that I’ve supported more than Phoenix & R. Kelly. I especially love how their Coachella performance happened with the band having only met R. Kelly that day—or something along those lines. I just love how Thomas Mars’ and R. Kelly’s voices go together. They just blend so effortlessly, creating a beautiful voice baby and it’s on full display with this remix. God, I love this. So good.

Phoenix is Christian Mazzalai, Deck d’Arcy, Laurent Brancowitz, Thomas Mars.
