The genesis of Acraze's house reworking occurred in bed one morning. While watching Instagram stories, the Florida DJ saw a clip in which a friend flaunted her new car with "Do It To It" playing as a backing track. "I was like, 'Wait, this could be sick!'" he recalled to Billboard
Acraze switched on his computer and within an hour had produced a rough house edit of Cherish's song with added drums and pitched-down vocals. After he debuted his version of "Do It To It" at a 2021 New Year's Eve show, it immediately garnered interest from other DJs.
