"Dear Lover" is a song released as a single by R&B singer Mary Wells, released off her album, The Two Sides of Mary Wells, on the Atco label. Produced by respected Chicago producer Carl Davis, the song returned Wells to the R&B top ten two years after her two Marvin Gaye singles entered the Cashbox R&B top five and three years after her Motown single, "You Lost the Sweetest Boy", peaked at number ten.[1][2] It would also end up being Wells' last R&B top ten of her entire career though she still had a succession of R&B hits throughout the remainder of her career.
