The VIP mix was debuted on a Rinse FM show on 16 January 2013. Later on, the Black Ops version of the track was combined with Alvin Risk's song "Yeah" to form the neon mix.

The neon mix is featured in Fantasia: Music Evolved. According to Moore, there have been at least eight different mixes of the song.[3] The "Put Em Up" mix is a mash-up with the Alvin Risk song of the same name, which featured on the Junk Food extended play.
