I Believe
by DJ Khaled (featuring Demi Lovato)

Album: A Wrinkle in Time (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • This lush, majestic song was recorded by DJ Khaled and Demi Lovato for the end credits of the Ava DuVernay-directed fantasy adventure movie A Wrinkle in Time. The film is based on Madeleine L'engle's 1962 novel of the same name.
  • Lovato sings most of the self-affirming lyrics about believing in oneself and overcoming struggle while Khaled interjects throughout with his signature brand of chilled-out inspirational vibing. The Florida producer also helmed the track. DuVernay said: "I truly loved working with DJ Khaled who jumped into this project with open arms and an open heart, along with the great Demi Lovato."
