"#GetItRight" is a a pop and Funk song with elements of R&B and Soul music; it was written and produced by Pharrell Williams. According to the sheet music published at Musicnotes.com by Kobalt Music Publishing America, the track is written in the key of F major with a tempo of 116 beats per minute. Lyrically, the song explicitly talks about sexual desire, sexual tension and sexual arousal, as well as verbal direction of things to do during sexual intercourse.
Upon its release, "#GetItRight" received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who appreciated its overall production. Mariah Eakin from The A.V. Club complimented its placement on Bangerz, describing the song as "perfectly appropriate for an early-twentysomething, albeit one who has no problem with nudity." Nick Catucci of Entertainment Weekly opined that the track is "every bit as immodest as you'd expect from a young lady who recently spawned a craze for swinging unattired on public pendulums", and further commented that it "solved the riddle [of] what the grinning naked women in Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' video were thinking". Writing for Slant Magazine, Kyle Fowler appreciated "#GetItRight" for being a "sexy slice of pop-funk whose lyrics boast a raunchy but refreshing display of female sexual agency". Mark Jacobs from V described the track as "a sure Top 40 diamond with a whistling hook and clever sweetness that partially obscures the frank sexual nature of its lyrics."
However, Heather Phares from AllMusic gave a more mixed review of "#GetItRight", suggesting that it is "so bouncy it almost sounds innocent despite Miley's insistence that she wants to be naughty." Evan Sawdey felt that the song was "catchy but flat", while Jessica Hopper of Spin though that Cyrus came across as "powerless and horny"
