After a six year hiatus from music, nine-time Grammy Award-winning singer, businesswoman and new mom Rihanna returns with her highly anticipated single "Lift Me Up" which serves as the lead single to the soundtrack Black Panther: Wakanda Forever - Music From and Inspired By.
Written by Rihanna, Tems, Ryan Coogler and Ludwig Goransson (also producer), the inspiring ballad is said to be in tribute to the late Black Panther himself, Chadwick Boseman.
“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.” -Tems
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever - Music From and Inspired By arrives November 4th via Roc Nation, Def Jam Recordings and Hollywood Records and the film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever arrives in theaters on November 11th.
