Let's Pretend We're Married was the fifth and final single to be released from Prince's fifth album 1999, although it was only the fourth single to be released in each territory where it received release. The b-side, Irresistible Bitch, was previously-unreleased.
It was released one year and three weeks after the album, and received a release in North America, Europe and Japan.
Unusually, the 12" single was released a week prior to the 7" single in the USA.
The single reached number 52 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart, and number 55 on the Billboard Black Singles Chart.
