“Love Takes Time” is a song written by Mariah Carey and Ben Margulies, and produced by Walter Afanasieff for Carey’s debut album, Mariah Carey (1990). It was released as the album’s second single in the third quarter of 1990. It was the first of several adult contemporary-influenced Carey ballads to be released as a single, and its protagonist laments the loss of a lover and confesses that “love takes time” to heal and that her feelings for her ex-lover remain. It became Carey’s second number 1 single in the United States and Canada, but was only a moderate success elsewhere. Read on...
