|La Toya Jackson singles chronology|
"Night Time Lover" is the second single by American singer La Toya Jackson, from her eponymous debut. The track was produced by her brother Michael, who provides co-lead vocals on the chorus and co-wrote it. They originally wrote the song for Donna Summer under the title "Fire Is The Feeling".
The song peaked at #59 on the Billboard R&B chart.
Bobby DeBarge of Switch, Jackson's love interest, wrote the 1980 song "You and I" in response. The song begins: "You know, I was listening to the radio the other day, And I heard the words that you said that I'm your Night Time Lover."
The track "Lovely Is She" (also on the album) was on the B-side of the single.
In Allmusic editor Justin Kantor's description: "Another primer is 'Nighttime Lover,' a softly seductive, simultaneously kinetic number produced by brother Michael."
