"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 David Dorrell, CJ 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 and Yvonne Turner. The second music video for the North American market was directed by Jimmy Fletcher. In September 1990, just before Stansfield's European tour, the double A-side single "This Is the Right Time"/"You Can't Deny It" with new 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, number twenty in Austria and number twenty-four in Italy. 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. In 2014, the remixes of "This Is the Right Time" were included on the deluxe 2CD + DVD re-release of Affection and on People Hold On ... The Remix Anthology (also on The Collection 1989–2003).
