Kick-starting the new year with new music, Justin Timberlake has dropped a new song ‘Believe’ in collaboration with rapper Meek Mill which will be featured in his rumoured upcoming album. The song is accompanied by a music video directed by Maxime Quoilin.
Justin’s verse goes, “You know I still believe, still believe in you and me / Cause every night I to sleep, go to sleep / I can see it like a movie in my dreams / Put my face in the dirt on the ground / Still I race off to take back the crown, yes / You can break my body / But you can’t lock the soul of a man down.”
Meek Mill’s verse goes, “Follow your dreams, not your addictions / How we gon’ follow our dreams locked in a prison? / They tried to swallow me whole, God be my witness / Deprive me outta my dreams but I’m relentless.”
“I want somebody who got paralyzed and working to get out of a wheelchair, somebody who come from, might be working on a job, getting fired from a job, people overcoming the illest s**t in the world,” Meek Mill said in a video shared by Justin Timberlake on his Instagram.

Back in 2019, Justin spoke to Entertainment Tonight about his upcoming album and working with fresh talents.”I just called my publishers and I said, ‘You know, I just want to work with young, fresh people, and I want to collaborate more. I’ve been songwriting and producing for so long — I want to experience that energy, and I want to work with people that I think are truly amazing. I worked with SZA the other day and just worked with Meek Mill,” he shared. “I’m having these experiences that are fueling me in such a different way and, again, I think it was really birthed out of feeling like, what can I do right now to just be a part of my community and integrate,” he told ET.
