"It's Alright" is the last single from Ricky Martin's album Life. The Spanish version is called "Déjate Llevar" ("Indulge"). The single was released on March 7, 2006.

The original version of "It's Alright" contains Ricky Martin vocals only. In 2006, M. Pokora recorded additional vocals in French, and this new version was released as a single in Francophone countries. It was later included on the special edition of M. Pokora's Player album. It was one of the last songs written by singer-songwriter Soraya who died of a relapse of breast cancer later in 2006.

"Déjate Llevar" peaked at number twenty-one on the Hot Latin Songs in the United States.

The solo version of "It's Alright" reached number seventeen in Finland and number sixty-nine on the Dutch Single Top 100.
