"This Is the Right Time" is a song recorded by British singer Lisa Stansfield for her 1989 album, Affection. It was written by Stansfield, Ian Devaney and Andy Morris, and produced by Coldcut. The song received favorable reviews from music critics. "This Is the Right Time" was released as the first European single on 31 July 1989. It included "Affection," "Big Thing" (recorded by Stansfield's 80s band Blue Zone) and remixes created by Dave Dorrell, C.J. Mackintosh, Paul Witts and Eddie Gordon. The music video was directed by Big TV!. One year later, on 30 July 1990, "This Is the Right Time" was issued as the third North American single. It included previously unreleased track, "My Apple Heart" and new remixes created by Shep Pettibone, Rodney Ascue and Yvonne Turner. The second music video for the North American market was directed by Jimmy Fletcher. In August 1990, just before Stansfield's European tour which started in mid-September, the double A-side single "This Is the Right Time"/"You Can't Deny It" with US remixes was released in selected European countries. In Japan, "This Is the Right Time" was released as a single on 3 October 1990. The song was commercially successful reaching number twelve in Canada, number thirteen in the United Kingdom, number seventeen in Germany and number twenty in Austria. In the United States, it peaked at number twenty-one on the Billboard Hot 100, number one on the Hot Dance Club Songs and number thirteen on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. In 2003, it was included on Biography: The Greatest Hits.
