Does that not mean that “the song” is then the remix? Not?— Urie Trishkov (@bonolo79) 25 February 2018
Today was the first time I have heard the original version of Ignition o.O— Ooh_u (@U__Money) 25 February 2018
Really? Thatz dope! Nothing wrong with going right to left.— FoxyMelissa (@MelissaEWright1) 25 February 2018

So the remix is really the original and the original with just you is really the remix?— Smilin' Genius (@Scorp294) 25 February 2018
To be honest I always thought the remix was the original— #StuckInTheNineties (@Kizaro47) 25 February 2018
You did, I thought you wrote the original before the remix— Tasia Hester (@TasiaHester2) 25 February 2018
During an interview with GQ, R. Kelly bizarrely revealed that he wrote the main section of ‘Ignition’ (Remix) around five years before he wrote ‘Ignition’ – especially the lines:
“It's the remix to 'Ignition'/ hot and fresh out the kitchen”
However he apparently shelved the lyrics because he didn’t think they were any good.
When R. Kelly was asked about how he was able to write the remix to a song that doesn’t exist yet, he admitted it was “ass-backwards”.
The ‘Ignition’ remix and original were both placed on his 2003 album ‘Chocolate Factory’.
Meanwhile, R. Kelly has been in the news recently for after he was reportedly evicted from two of his houses, including the one in which he allegedly had a sex cult.
