''It's About Time'' is the second studio album by American singer Christina Milian. The album was released by Island Records on June 15, 2004 in Japan, and July 13, 2004 in the United States. ''It's About Time'' served as Milian's debut in the US; the September 11 attacks occurred two weeks prior to her debut album was scheduled to be released, and Milian opted to record a new album for the US market.

For the production of the album, Milian worked with Bloodshy & Avant, Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, Cory Rooney, Warryn Campbell, Bryan-Michael Cox and Poli Paul. Milian received writing credit for seven songs on the album, often basing them on personal experiences. The musical style of ''It's About Time'' is primarily R&B, compared to the pop styling of Milian's previous album. The style and sound of the album was compared to that of Beyoncé Knowles and Jennifer Lopez by several critics.

The album peaked at number 14 on the US ''Billboard'' 200 album chart and number 21 in the United Kingdom, selling a total of 382,000 and 63,708 copies respectively. The album achieved Silver certification in the UK, and received a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary R&B Album. The album's lead single, "Dip It Low", became Milian's most successful to date; peaking at number two on the UK Singles Chart and number five on the US ''Billboard'' Hot 100 chart. The second single "Whatever U Want" was less successful, peaking on the UK singles chart at number nine. The critical response to ''It's About Time'' was mixed. The club tracks, most notably "Dip It Low", were praised, however the ballads were said to be disappointing. - Wikipedia
