"It Ain't My Fault, Pt. 2," a remixed version of the track with the intonation, "Did I do that?" recalling Steve Urkel's famous catchphrase, later appeared on Silkk's third album, Made Man.

The chorus was re-interpreted in a charity song with the same name[1] by Mos Def, Lenny Kravitz, Trombone Shorty, Tim Robbins, and the Preservation Hall Band to benefit Gulf Aid, a nonprofit created in response to the BP oil spill off the Louisiana Coast.

Mariah Carey recorded a reworked version of the song titled "Did I Do That" for her album Rainbow.

Other versionsEdit

It Ain't My Fault was written by Smokey Johnson and Wardell Quezergue in 1964. Introduced by Harold Dejan's Olympia Brass Band into the contemporary New Orleans brass band repertory, it has become a standard, recorded by the Treme Brass Band, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and many others.
