Ignition (Remix)” is a song written and produced by American R&B singer R. Kelly. It was released in 2002 as the lead single from his sixth studio album Chocolate Factory (2003). It is viewed as one of his most well-known songs and has been popular in the United States, Europe and Oceania.

Ignition (Remix)” peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 for five consecutive weeks behind 50 Cent’s “In Da Club“. Outside the United States, the song topped the charts in Australia, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom. It was later included on the updated version of Rolling Stone’s 500 greatest songs of all time in 2010 at number 494. The song was listed at #19 on Pitchfork Media’s top 500 songs of the 2000s.

The original song “Ignition” was first recorded in 2002 after the alleged statutory rape tape was a hot topic in the media. The original “Ignition” was planned to be one of the songs on his forthcoming album at that time called Loveland; the album got leaked later on, and Kelly decided to turn Loveland to Chocolate Factory, record mostly new songs and remix some of the songs on that album. “Ignition” was one of the songs he decided to remix after people in the studio liked the end part of the song, which would later become the intro to the remix.

On Genius, Kelly explained the song: “First of all it was an old, old track that I had in my computer for a long time. When I pulled it up, for some reason I just heard “ignition” on it, so I start really just messing with the words and a lot of metaphors start coming to me. You know “trying to get you to my hotel/ you must be a football coach/ the way you got me playing the field/ So baby give me that “toot toot, that beep beep.” You know what I mean? Just basically having fun with the song from there, once I tapped into the metaphor of it.” In a 2016 interview, Kelly claimed that he wrote the basis of “Ignition (Remix)“, including the main lyric of the refrain, approximately five years before he wrote the song called “Ignition“.

The song is sometimes called simply “Ignition” colloquially and for marketing purposes, including as the title of one of its releases as a single and on the Billboard charts. While it shares the song title with the original version of “Ignition”, the remix version is most commonly referred to in writing to avoid confusion with the original. The two songs share some instrumental elements (guitars and percussion) but are otherwise completely different.

The original “Ignition” was released first to urban contemporary radio stations although it never officially charted on Billboard in this manner at first. At the end of the song, Kelly gives the listeners “a lil’ preview of the remix”, which includes only the first verse then fades out. The “remix to Ignition” was released weeks later to urban and Top 40 pop stations, and it gained significantly more attention. While many stations never played the original but opted for the remix only, others played both songs, merged, at six minutes total; it was structured that way on the Chocolate Factory album.

The song contains a minor sample from the intro of R. Kelly’s 2001 hit song “Fiesta (Remix)”. Additionally, the original version opens with the same spoken-word intro that originally appeared in his earlier hit “You Remind Me of Something”.

The music video was shot in a club where Kelly is seen wearing a Boston Celtics jersey. The club is meant to be the inside of a stretch Club Hummer limousine. He is also seen in a different part of the club wearing a white fur coat. Nick Cannon is also featured in the music video as the DJ. David N. Feldman also makes a cameo as the dancing white hipster. The music video is directed by Bille Woodruff, who has directed numerous other videos for Kelly.

“Ignition (Remix)” was a huge success for Kelly. In the United States, it peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 for five consecutive weeks behind 50 Cent’s “In da Club” and became his most successful song in the United States in the 2000s.

In the United Kingdom, the song debuted and peaked at the top of the UK Singles Chart, where it remained for four weeks, becoming Kelly’s second number-one song in Britain after “I Believe I Can Fly” in April 1997. In April 2013, a decade after its initial release, “Ignition (Remix)” re-entered the UK Singles Chart at number 43.

Ignition (Remix)” also topped the charts in Australia, New Zealand and the Republic of Ireland.

The song also peaked at number two on the 2003 Billboard Year-End Chart, yet again behind “In da Club“. Due to the success of this song and other songs by Kelly the same year, this also made him number two on the “Year End Best Artist” chart, behind 50 Cent. – Wikipedia

Some Quotable Lyrics

Now, um, usually I don’t do this but uh
Go head on and break ’em off with a lil’ preview of the remix

No, I’m not trying to be rude
But hey, pretty girl, I’m feeling you
The way you do the things you do
Reminds me of my Lexus coupe
That’s why I’m all up in yo grill
Tryna get you to a hotel
You must be a football coach
The way you got me playing the field

So, baby, gimme that toot toot
Lemme give you that beep beep
Running her hands through my ‘fro
Bouncing on 24s
While they say on the radio
