Despite everything, I can’t help but enjoy “Ignition (remix)”. R. Kelly is a suspicious character and his lyrics can be a bit uncomfortable at times, but that song at least has a great hook and r’n’b rhythm.
That said, I can’t wrap my head around these lyrics:
I mean… Yes. This is R. Kelly, not R. Proust.Still, what is this I’m hearing? It’s like “Murder she wrote” once R. Kelly gets the girl “out of them clothes”? I don’t know about you, but to me ‘Murder she wrote’ is what old ladies watch on sunday afternoons together with scones and tea. Judging from R. Kelly overall, I’d assume that he’s a bit less innocent than that. Rather “Freakazoid” or “American Gladiators”. Perhaps even “Fear Factor”.
So, from what I can gather, the lyrics have something to do with either of the following:
a.) “Murder, she wrote” is stranger than I recall. Maybe Angela Lansbury in particular.
b.) The lyrics are a metaphor for something intricately kinky that I’m too European and too non-R. Kelly to grasp. If so, I apologize in advance.
c.) R. Kelly is crazy.
Enlighten me, message board.
