For Rihanna stans, it’s been a LONG six year wait without any new music from her.
But their prayers have been answered – she’s back with a new song, Lift Me Up, which will feature on the new Black Panther film, Wakanda Forever!
It was a tightly kept secret, and it was only earlier this week that people knew the song was coming, when she released a teaser on her social media channels.
What do you think of Rihanna’s new song? Let us know in our interactive, or in the comments!
The director of Wakanda Forever Ryan Coogler said Rihanna got on board to pay her respects to Chadwick Boseman.
He played the Black Panther, King T’Challa in the first film, but sadly died in August 2020.
Ryan explained: “Honestly, I think it was Chad… a lot of improbable things needed to happen for it to come through and Rihanna was very clear that she did that for him.
“We knew [Rihanna] was at a point in her life as well where she was focusing on different things – focused on business, motherhood, which is a big theme in our film,” he continued.
“We were holding out hope that maybe it could work out and boy did it for this song.”
Lift Me Up has been co-written by Rihanna, Coogler and Nigerian singer-songwriter Tems, who has previously worked with Drake, Justin Bieber, Future, Wizkid, Beyonce and Khalid.
The song is produced and co-written by Swedish composer Ludwig Göransson, who scored the first Black Panther film as well as Creed, Venom and Tenet.
