Radio edit version

The radio edit version of Low is distinctly different from the original version. Flo Rida, instead of T-Pain, sings the chorus and certain words were censored out. The word "snow" from the verse "make it rain, I'm making it snow" was censored using a "losing energy" effect. Words like "pole", "crack" were blanked out. The phrase "pornography poster" became "po-po-po-poster" while the word "glock" was edited out and the last verse made to fade out into the chorus. Extra instrumental effects were added as well. The radio edit version is played in radio stations and on Radio Disney.
