"We Connect" a song by American singer Stacey Q. It was released as the second single from her debut studio album, Better Than Heaven, in November 1986 by Atlantic Records. Written by Willie Wilcox and produced by Jon St. James, the song was a follow-up to her hit single "Two of Hearts". It matched its predecessor's top position on the Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales chart but was less successful in pop charts, peaking at number 35 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 14 on the Hot Dance Club Songs.

"We Connect" was promoted on the television series The Facts of Life in the episode "A Star is Torn" in which Stacey Q portrayed the role of Cinnamon. "We Connect" was issued as a single release in several territories where "Two of Hearts" had been a hit with impact evident only in Australia where "We Connect" matched the #7 peak of "Two of Hearts".
