Y Should Eye Do That When Eye Can Do This? (later known as Y Should Do That When Can Do This?) was initially heard as a 1:32 excerpt streaming on NPGOnlineLtd.com on 1 June 2000, along with excerpts of Splash and Cybersingle. In June 2001, it was released as part of the NPG Music Club Edition # 5 as an mp3 download (credited to Prince, despite having been recorded and initially heard while Prince used the name ). In 2004, it was included (as Y Should Do That When Can Do This?) as the third track on the compilation album The Slaughterhouse.

Initial recording dates are unknown, but the track was believed to have been recorded during sessions for Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic, corroborated by The Hornheadz, who recorded horns for the track on 17 May 1999 (during the same session as horn overdubs for Hot Wit U, Man‘O’War, I Ain’t Gonna Run and R U Ready?). The track contains a repeated sample of Sly & The Family Stone’s Family Affair (written by Sly Stone, released on the album There’s a Riot Goin' On and as a single in 1971).
