Redbone is a song by hip-hop recording artist Childish Gambino off his album Awaken, My Love! It became the subject of remixes in May 2017 following a popular tweet that described a remix where all the audio is muted as "What Redbone would sound like while you're making out in the bathroom of a house party."


"Redbone" is the second single off Awaken, My Love! and was released on November 17th, 2016.[1] The song is Gambino's most successful single to date and his first top 40 single. The song also featured in the closing and ending credits of the race-related horror film Get Out directed by Jordan Peele.

On May 14th, 2017, Twitter user @chloestixx tweeted a remix of the song where the audio was heavily muted, captioning it "What Redbone would sound like while you're making out in the bathroom of a house party." Her tweet gained over 85,400 retweets and 195,900 likes (shown below).


On May 21st, Twitter user @alanmora1 replied to @chloestixx with his remix, "what redbone would sound like while you're peeing in the bathroom of a house party," that played the audio of the @chloestixx post with the sound of someone urinating in a toilet over it (shown below). His post gained over 5,300 retweets and 13,200 likes.

This marked the first of dozens of remixes that riffed on @chloestixx's post. One by Twitter user @YungMondi in which rapper Famous Dex adlibbed over the track (shown below) caught the attention of XXLMag.[2] The spread of the remixes led to an inquiry posted to /r/OutOfTheLoop on the 23rd.[3]
