Help Identifying a Song

I feel like this shouldn't be too hard but here goes (my Spotify attempt failed). It's a late 70s (even early 80s perhaps) song with rich vocals and harmonizing (female lead), esp on the "hook" which says "take all the time you need". Help! it was a feel good song from my youth that I need to reconnect with

You can try Second Hand Songs or Who Sampled to see if you can find the version you're looking for.

You can take a black guy to Nashville from right out of the cotton fields with bib overalls, and they will call him R&B. You can take a white guy in a pin-stripe suit who’s never seen a cotton field, and they will call him country. ~ O. B. McClinton

Not sure if it's the same song you are looking for but Phyllis Hyman remade "I Ain't Asking For Your Love" in 1981.

it was Roy Ayers featuring a female vocalist from his Ubiquity album. MAN, what i wouldn't do for a Chaka Khan version of this!
