"Let's Get Started" and "If You Wanna Party (I Found Lovin')" are in fact the same song, but with different titles. It was the second single released by All Saints and All Saints when the band re-launched.

"Let's Get Started" was used as the title for the Japan release in April 1995, while "If You Wanna Party (I Found Lovin')" was used for its UK release in September 1995. The single was originally recorded as All Saints, without Natalie and Nicole Appleton but with original member Simone Rainford, before she left the band. Although Simone remains performing backing vocals on the single, she is not, however, featured on the single cover or listed as a main performer on the track, due to her leaving the band before the actual single was released.

The song was then re-recorded in 1997 when Natalie and Nicole joined the band for inclusion on the debut album of the re-grouped and renamed All Saints. On the original version of All Saints, the song reverted to the original title of "Let's Get Started", however when the album was re-released, they changed it yet again to a slightly different version of the second title, "If You Want to Party (I Found Lovin')", changing the "Wanna" to "Want To"; this was due to a legal wrangle over the uncredited use of "I Found Lovin'" by the Fatback Band.

The re-recorded version of "Let's Get Started" with Natalie and Nicole Appleton was then re-released as a single in Japan only; the song also had a music video, which was exclusive to Japan, until it was released on the All Saints video and later on the All Saints collection, The Videos. However, it was listed as "If You Want to Party (I Found Lovin')" on the covers.
