I Still Believe is the fourth studio album by American R&B artist Lyfe Jennings, released on August 31, 2010[5][6] on Asylum Records and Warner Bros. Records.

Background[edit]

The album was originally titled Sooner or Later and set to be released in 2009 but was pushed to a 2010 release due to Lyfe wanting more time to make this his best album.[7] Lyfe stated this will be his final album because family issues involving his children but he has said he will still do some behind the scene work and a couple features every so often.[7] Lyfe has also said: "I never compare any of my other albums to 268-192, because they were different – special, but different at the same time. I think this album here is definitely comparable to the first time I really had a couple of different features, dream features that I can do songs with. It's not over yet, this is the last album to finish your collection."[7]
