On April 28, 2010, the official remix was released. It features Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Diddy, Nicki Minaj, Fabolous, Jadakiss, Fat Joe, Swizz Beatz on background vocals, and T-Pain. Jadakiss's verse is a sample from "Allergic to Losing", a song from his 2010 mixtape The Champ Is Here 3. The remix was released as a digital single on iTunes on June 8, 2010. A music video has been shot and was released on June 29, 2010. DJ Khaled also raps a verse on the remix.

There is another remix titled "Hood Remix" or "G-Mix" which is by Nappy Boy artist Young Cash. The remix features a new rap line up, Yo Gotti, Gudda Gudda, Bun B, Ice Berg, 2 Chainz, T-Pain, and Field Mob. On this version, instead of T-Pain on the chorus, Young Cash is, while T-Pain delivers a verse of his own.[8]

In popular cultureEdit

The song has become an anthem for numerous sports teams, most notably the Auburn Tigers football team during their 2010 national championship season. It was played during the team's pregame entrance video as well as following each home victory in Jordan–Hare Stadium.[citation needed]

The New York Knicks professional basketball team also use an instrumental version of the song for their player intros during the 2010–11 NBA season.[9] The Denver Nuggets,[10] Memphis Grizzlies, Indiana Pacers, Portland Trail Blazers, Cleveland Cavaliers, Carolina Panthers, Nashville Predators, and Phoenix Suns play this song after every home game victory.[citation needed]

The song has gained popularity among Miami Hurricanes football fans as Snoop Dogg's line "We like the U in the 80s" refers to the University of Miami football team that dominated college football in the 80s and early 90s. It was subsequently arranged for the Band of the Hour, Miami's marching band. Internet mashup artist DJ Earworm has included the song in a mash-up designed for the 2012 Summer Olympics.[11][12]

A remix version was made in December 2011 for Tim Tebow of the Denver Broncos, called "All He Does Is Win" – the video went viral on YouTube.[13] The New Orleans Saints play the chorus of "All I Do Is Win" during home games. This is also one of themes for the Canadian roller derby team, E-Ville Roller Derby.[citation needed]

The song was used as background music for one of the commercials advertising the Jamaican teen magazine television programme Teen Seen, which aired on major television network CVM Television on Saturdays at 6pm (previously at 4:30pm) and was created by the National Family Planning Board (which produced the programme with Phase 3 Productions).[citation needed]

At the 2013 White House Correspondents' Dinner, President Barack Obama was introduced to "Hail to the Chief," which quickly cut to a snippet of "All I Do is Win."[14][15]

On April 28, 2014, actress Emma Stone lip synched the song in a "Lip Sync Battle" against late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon.[16]

The song was featured in the 2015 musical comedy film Pitch Perfect 2, the 2015 film Magic Mike XXL, and the 2016 R-Rated comedy "The Boss".[citation needed]

The song was also used in the trailer for the 2015 film The Peanuts Movie.[citation needed]

This song is also featured on the soundtrack for NBA 2K16.[citation needed]

The YouTube channel Barack's Dubs created and uploaded a mashup video of U.S. President Donald Trump singing the song.[17]
