Songfacts®:

  • Released under the name Dutch, "My Time" is a collaboration between the Dutch producer Scumfrog (Jesse Houk) and the American singer Crystal Waters, who wrote the lyric. The song went to #1 on the Dance chart, the seventh chart-topper for Waters on that tally.
  • This uplifting song finds Waters returning to form after falling out of favor in the late '90s:

    Turn up the lights
    This is my time


    In a Songfacts interview with Waters, she said: "I had a little break from the label. That was when I was off of Mercury. I had a couple of years off and decided, alright, I'm still going to do this. It was about coming back... back into the game."
