A.V. Undercover

Young The Giant covers “Ignition (Remix)”

“Hot and fresh out the kitchen.”

About This Episode

It’s always a pleasant surprise when bands bring something extra to the little round room. California band Young The Giant, inspired by the video for R. Kelly’s modern classic “Ignition (Remix),” showed up to our office with a pile of rented fur coats—all the better to funnel Kells’ spirit. We think you’ll find this rendition fun and sweaty.

Fun fact: “Ignition (Remix)” really isn’t a remix of “Ignition” at all. “Ignition” is a completely separate song, with its own melody and lyrics. It does share some thematic elements and a fondness for a particular sexual metaphor. Enjoy!
