The song was originally recorded in 1998 by T-Boz and Left Eye for possible inclusion in the 1999 multi-platinum FanMail. The song was not included with FanMail as it did not fit the album's sound, because the album focused on futuristic production.
When the idea for Eye Legacy was brought about, "Let's Just Do It" was selected to go on the album and was then chosen to be the lead single. In 2008, Missy Elliott and Chilli recorded new vocals on the song, whilst the track was remixed and was given a new beat.
The track was first played November 5, 2008, at Hot Dance Airplay reporter WDRE/Nassau, New York.
Despite the low download sales of the single, "Let's Just Do It" received a very positive review from Billboard magazine. It says "The energy that made the trio's upbeat singles international smashes is evident here, along with Left Eye's essence—a reminder that TLC was among the most successful female R&B groups of all time. Originally recorded in 1998, the Heavy Weights and Marcus DL's production builds a catchy and contemporary rhythmic structure."
The track sold less than 1,000 downloads during the week of the single's release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Because of this, the song failed to chart in the US Billboard charts and failed to be released worldwide.
