What does ‘cleaned version’ mean?

A version of a song that you wouldn’t mind showing to your Mum!

Cleaned tracks are simply the version of an explicit track that has been edited to make it non-explicit, similar to a radio edit.

A clean track is one that does not contain curse words, language or artwork that is sexual, violent , or offensive in nature. Tracks should only be marked as cleaned if there is another version of the same track and it is marked as explicit (this doesn’t have to be within the same release).

See our handy blog for more on the meaning of explicit, clean and non-explicit.
