Instant Love is an 1982 album by American singer Cheryl Lynn, released on Columbia Records. Luther Vandross produced the album and also performed a duet with Lynn on "If This World Were Mine", a cover of the original recording by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. The arrangements were by Luther Vandross, Marcus Miller and Nat Adderley, Jr. The album peaked at #7 on the R&B album charts and #133 on The Billboard 200.

Coming off of his success with Aretha Franklin's "Jump to It," Cheryl and Luther delivered the title cut as a first single, but it only reached #16 on the R&B charts. The two artists did however make an impact with their duet on a remake of the Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell classic "If This World Were Mine" which became the biggest hit (#4 R&B) off of this album. A third single, "Look Before You Leap", stalled out at #77 on the R&B charts.[1]
