Letitgo was the first single to be released from Prince's 15th full-length album Come. It was released a week prior to the album, and received a release around the world. The b-side, Solo, was also taken from the album.

A maxi-single was later released containing multiple remixes of Letitgo, but none were remixed by Prince or anyone employed by him (of note is that the Original Album Version fades out fully, instead of overlapping with Orgasm as on the album).

In the UK and Europe, the CD single also contained Alexa De Paris (Extended Version) which had not previously been available on CD, and Pope.

The single reached number 31 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart, and number 10 on the Billboard Hot R&B Singles Chart.

The single's cover photograph, like that of the album Come, was photographed by Terry Gydesen, and taken from the book The Sacrifice Of Victor (published the same year), which documented the 1993 Act II tour; the image used for Letitgo was the same image used on the book's cover.

The single (and the album that followed) were credited to "Prince", which led to some confusion, as he had publicly changed his name to SymbolSmallerBlue.png a year before, and had worldwide success with The Most Beautiful Girl In The World under his new name.

The public argument was that the tracks on this album were recorded before the name change, but in fact Letitgo was recorded in March 1994, over eight months after the name change.

  • For some unknown reason, the maxi-single contains two remixes with slightly different names and durations (Caviar Radio Edit and Cavi 'Street Edit), but these two versions are identical.
