Remixes[edit]

The official remix has two versions, both versions have a new verse by Yo Gotti and verses by rappers Gucci Mane & Trina. The original remix, has a verse by Lil Boosie but Because of Lil' Boosie's impending four-year prison sentence, he was unable to attend the video shoot, so a second version was needed for the video. That version, now the main official remix, has a verse by Young Money artist Nicki Minaj replacing Boosie's verse. The explicit version of the remix with Nicki Minaj was released as a digital single on November 9, 2009.

The remix featuring Gucci Mane, Trina, and Nicki Minaj was included in the album instead of the original version.
