Singer, actress, and businesswoman Rihanna has made her highly-anticipated return to music with ‘Lift Me Up,’ the lead single from the upcoming ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ original soundtrack.
‘Lift Me Up’ eulogizes the legacy of Chadwick Boseman who played King T’Challa in the previous installment of the movie but passed away after battling colon cancer. The song was written by Tems, Oscar winner Ludwig Göransson, Rihanna, and Ryan Coogler. The song was recorded in five countries and was produced by Göransson
While discussing her contributions to 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,” said Tems. “Rihanna has been an inspiration to me, so hearing her convey this song is a great honor.
The soundtrack, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Music From and Inspired By, will be available on November 4 from Roc Nation Records/Def Jam Recordings/Hollywood Records
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which will have its worldwide premiere on Wednesday, October 26, is perhaps the year’s most highly anticipated film. The sequel will show Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba) fight to protect their nation from opposing forces in the wake of King T’Challa’s death.
