Say hello to 2018's latest Twitter meme.
Some songs never get old, but a handful of creative people on Twitter have put a spin on some of your favourite records that you probably didn't anticipate.
Using the mixing app 'djay', Internet users have begun playing tracks and 'slowing them down' - i.e. remixing them with some very recognisable audio.
The results are going viral, but if the premise of 2018's version of the Redbone meme is still unclear to you, have a listen to the examples listed below.
For starters, here's Rihanna's 'Needed Me'.

Frank Ocean's 'Thinking Bout You' sounds different.
