The singer, who released the track in May with American rap duo Chiddy Bang, insisted that it was a label decision as "UK rappers don't go down well in the US".
He told Metro: [Rizzle Kicks are] top lads and the song was a hit with them on it. It wasn't my decision, it was the label.
"It said UK rappers don't go down well in the US. The boys knew that and were fine about it. I called them and told them Chiddy Bang was going to be on it instead and they were fine."
He added: "I'd like it if they were on it because it's been a hit with them on it in the UK and Europe but I understand the American market is different. There are no hard feelings."
Murs's new version of the track currently sits at number 191 on the US iTunes chart. Listen to song in full below:
