There’s no doubt that R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix)” is an incredibly sexy song — now that I’ve grown up and fully understand the lyrics — but it’s hardly romantic. At least that’s what I thought before I heard James Dalby’s acoustic cover.
I know what you’re thinking. And while I agree that this song is a tad overdone in the world of YouTube cover artists, this one is worth a listen. He may not be as cute as Joseph Gordon-Levitt or as well-known as Young the Giant (both of whom have covered the song in the past), but he does a damn good job making it his own.
He has also posted covers including Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine” and Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody,” and they’re both amazing! This guy should not go unheard.
