Yes.

Though  If Beale Street Could Talk didn’t win an Oscar this year, we all just won, as the chopped and screwed version of the film’s soundtrack is here.

The original score, composed by Nicholas Britell was released in November 2018. Director Barry Jenkins had also hired Britell to write the score for his 2016 film Moonlight, which applied the chopped and screwed production technique and ended up earning an Academy Award nomination.

Jenkins shared the new soundtrack on Twitter with the caption, “The feeling of being a kid circa 1989 and going to the 79th St. flea market to buy Oldie Goldie tapes from the mixtape man… This is… IF BEALE STREET WAS CHOPPED.”

DJ Candelstick and OG Ron C’s of the Chopstars worked on the official remake.

In 2017,  Moonlight received the same chopped and screwed effect.
