Love Takes Time

Album: Mariah Carey (1990)
Charted: 37 1

Songfacts®:

  • Mariah wrote this with songwriter Ben Marguiles. It was intended for her second album, Emotions, but her label liked it so much they stopped presses of her first album, Mariah Carey, so it could be included. There are copies of Mariah Carey floating around that don't have "Love Takes Time" on it - they are a valuable piece of pop memorabilia. >>

  • This was Mariah's second single. It followed up "Vision Of Love."
