"We Belong" is a song written by Eric Lowen and Dan Navarro. It was made popular by American rock singer Pat Benatar after being released as the lead single from her sixth studio album, Tropico (1984). It matched the success of "Love Is a Battlefield" on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the United States, peaking at #5. It reached #3 on Billboard's Top Rock Tracks chart and #34 on the Adult Contemporary.
It was also successful in the United Kingdom, where it peaked at No. 22 in the charts, nearly matching the popularity of "Love Is a Battlefield" which is her most recognized song there. The song earned Benatar a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance alongside Linda Ronstadt, Tina Turner, Madonna, and Whitney Houston. It was awarded a Gold certification in Canada for sales in excess of 50,000 units.
The music video uses the 7" version of the song, which contains some additional vocals in the 4 bar introduction that are not present in the album version. Benatar discovered that she was pregnant during filming of the video, and gave birth to her first child, Haley Giraldo on February 16, 1985.
