After six years of not releasing songs, singer and businesswoman, Rihanna is set to release a single titled “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther.
Lift Me Up is the lead single for the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” soundtrack.
The song was written by Tems, Rihanna, Ryan Coogler, and Oscar winner Ludwig Göransson. It is a tribute to the life and legacy of the late Chadwick Boseman.
Speaking about the song, Tems said:
After speaking with Ryan and hearing his direction for the film and the song, I wanted to write something that portrays a warm embrace from all the people that I’ve lost in my life. I tried to imagine what it would feel like if I could sing to them now and express how much I miss them. Rihanna has been an inspiration to me so hearing her convey this song is a great honor.
