People Are Begging Other Artists To Cover "Ignition (Remix)" After The R. Kelly Story

Someone has to step up.

Posted on

Many R&B fans were shocked on Monday when a BuzzFeed News investigation revealed a group of parents told police that R. Kelly is holding their daughters in two different places.

Many people were shocked and disturbed at the allegations. They felt like they could no longer enjoy his music.

Many people called out others for continuously ignoring the allegations against Kelly because they're fans of his music.

man, R.Kelly is the devil and don't nobody care cuz he made Ignition.

"Block anyone that puts the Ignition Remix over the safety of young girls," said one woman.

Others reported that the prevalence of the "Ignition (Remix)" may be a thing of the past.

Ignition (Remix) started playing in this coffee shop and someone turned it off so fast.

Luckily, Twitter users have come up with a solution. They are pleading with someone to do a good cover of "Ignition (Remix)" so that they can all enjoy it in peace.

Speaking very selfishly, we need someone who's not scummy to cover the Ignition Remix so we can all enjoy it with a clearer conscience.

(Just FYI, though: Kelly still has a share in the rights to "Ignition (Remix)," so he does get a cut of the profits from any covers.)

Someone out there needs to help them out.

After all, the song is a jam.

What else will people dance to at weddings?

Gotta take R. Kelly tracks off the black wedding playlists or at least switch up to a reasonable cover of said R. Kelly songs.

And it's not just that song, either.

I hate R.Kelly so much. Someone needs to cover his songs so I can jam w/o thinking of R.Kelly.

People want covers of "I Believe I Can Fly," too, please?

@BostonJerry And I Believe I Can Fly, which we then edit into Space Jam? Please?

Some are calling out specific artists by name.

"All we need is a good cover of Ignition(remix) to play at weddings and we can forget R Kelly ever existed, you guys," said one person. Will that person be you?
