This Is My House is the 14th and final track (eleventh song) on Carmen Electra's only album Carmen Electra. The track was written by Carmen Electra and Levi Seacer, Jr., and 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 between Spring, 1991 and early 1992 (at one of Record Plant in Hollywood, California, Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California or Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota). An earlier version of the song was included as the twelfth track on a 15 June 1992 configuration of the album, then titled On Top (with the artist credit "Carmen"). In mid-September 1993, the song was tried out during early sessions for Mayte's first album Child Of The Sun at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, although the song may have been used only to determine appropriate song styles for Mayte; details of her version are not known.
