Everybody Get On Up is the seventh track on Carmen Electra's only album Carmen Electra, and, three weeks prior to the album's release, Everybody Get On Up was released as the album's second single, containing several remixes (by David Shaw) of the track.

A month earlier, however, the song was performed on The Ryde Dyvine TV special of Prince and related artists performing at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

The track is credited as written by Prince, Carmen Electra and Monie Love, although the track includes large (re-recorded) portions of Get On Up, a 1967 track by The Esquires (written by Gilbert Moorer, Bill Sheppard, Johnny Taylor, from the 1967 album Get On Up And Get Away, and previously recorded by Prince and the Revolution - see Get On Up for details).

The song was produced by Prince (although no producer credit was given, other than Paisley Park as executive producer).

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place in late April - early May 1992, at Studios 301, Sydney, Australia, while in Sydney on the Diamonds And Pearls Tour (during the same set of sessions as Goldnigga, Deuce & A Quarter, Goldie's Parade, A 1,000 Hugs And Kisses and Baby Doll).

It is likely (though uncertain) that Carmen Electra's vocals were recorded on 18 June 1992, at Olympic Studios, London, England during a day off on the Diamonds And Pearls Tour (along with her vocals on Step To The Mic).

The released version contains a sample of the track Singers by Eddie Murphy (from his 1983 album Eddie Murphy: Comedian).
