"Doin It" is the second single from LL Cool J's sixth album, Mr. Smith, and was released on January 20, 1996 for Def Jam Recordings. Based on a sample of Grace Jones' "My Jamaican Guy", it also featured LeShaun, production from Rashad "Ringo" Smith and LL Cool J.

"Doin It" was a success for LL Cool J, making it to #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #7 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Billboard charts. On the B-side was the previous single, "Hey Lover".

The remix featured on the soundtrack to The Nutty Professor samples the Art of Noise's "Moments in Love."

The crowd noise played throughout the song, shouting "Go Brooklyn", is sampled from "Top Billin'" by Audio Two. Keri Hilson sampled this song in her song "Do It" featuring Tank for her debut album In a Perfect World.

The song has the singers rapping about their sexual desire for each other.[1][2]

Music video

The video was shot in December 1995, and it was directed by Hype Williams.[citation needed] LeShaun did not appear in the music video, as she was pregnant at the time, so different models took her place and lip syncs her parts.
