New Delhi: Rihanna makes her solo comeback with Black Panthar: Wakanda Forever’s OST song ‘Lift Me Up’. Rihanna’s smashing solo is unveiled on October 28 and its an upbeat number.
Lift Me Up is a tribute to the life and legacy of the late Chadwick Boseman. Rihanna also attended Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s world premiere in LA with boyfriend A$AP Rocky this week.
In a press release, via People, songwriter Tems, Ludwig Göransson and director Ryan Coogler spoke about Lift Me Up.
“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 honour.”
