Ava DuVernay’s upcoming film A Wrinkle In Time is the director’s love letter to Black women and girls. Starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, and Gugu Mbatha Raw, the film is the epitome of #blackgirlmagic. The film follows 13-year-old Meg, played by Reid, as she tries to find her missing father and saves the world. It is an adaptation based on the 1962 novel by Madeleine L’Engle of the same name.
Tuesday (February 20th) Ava took to Twitter to announce the film’s soundtrack and one of its mysterious special guests.
“I never thought she’d say yes, but I asked anyway,” DuVernay said. “She was kind + giving. A goddess.”
If you’re wondering who Ava is referring to, it is the goddess mother herself, Sade.
Sade is scheduled to perform an original song for A Wrinkle In Time soundtrack.
“We began a journey together that I’ll never forget. Proud to announce that Sade has created an original song for WRINKLE IN TIME,” Ava continued. “It’s entitled ‘Flower of the Universe.’ And it’s a dream come true.”

Sade’s last musical release took place in 2010, the year she dropped the award-winning album Soldier of Love.
Nothing but girl power.
