Time is the fourth track (third song) on Rhonda Smith's second and most recent solo album RS2. The track was written by Rhonda Smith, Joey Sommerville and Marcus Waller, and produced by Joey Sommerville and Rhonda Smith, but features Prince playing lead and rhythm guitar.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is likely that intitial tracking took place in late 2005 or 2006, at either The Manor in Alpharetta, Georgia, or Slow Wine Music in Sherman Oaks, Calfornia without Prince input. His guitar parts were recorded at 3121 Antelo Rd. in Los Angeles, California, in either late 2005 or 2006.

While Rhonda Smith has played as Prince's primary bass guitarist from 1996 to 2004, this is Prince's only known contribution to her solo work. The track was initially credited as "Rhonda Smith with Prince" when the album was released on iTunes, but this was later changed to reflect the credits on the physical release, which credit all tracks only to Rhonda Smith.
