This is one of LL Cool J's more overtly sexual songs. "That's one of my favorites, because what's better than doin' it? And the track pounds just like youʻre doing it," he said in Entertainment Weekly
Most hit songs about sex are shrouded in metaphor, but there's something to be said for simply stating your intentions. Lascivious R&B had gone mainstream: once Bell Biv Devoe cleared a path with "Do Me," there wasn't much that could shock radio programmers into not playing a song for concern that it was too suggestive. The #1 song of 1994 was "I'll Make Love To You
," so LL was simply ratcheting up the lust factor to "Doin' It."
