Finally, the wait is over. Rihanna makes a huge comeback after a six-year-long break. Rihanna’s long-awaited return is finally here, as she will release her new song “Lift Me Up” for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on October 28th.
“Lift Me Up,” the opening single from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been co-written by Tems, Ludwig Göransson, Rihanna, and filmmaker Ryan Coogler. The song is a musical tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman died at the age of 43 from cancer.
The new mother is prepared to make a terrific comeback in the music industry. The back-to-back success in launching a beauty line, a lingerie line, and high fashion collections, the 34-year-old established herself as a billionaire and a mogul.
The release of “Lift Me Up” will undeniably bring along a new era in Rihanna’s iconic musical career. The song will be released on October 28th via Rihanna’s own Westbury Road label in partnership with Roc Nation, Def Jam Recordings, and Hollywood Records.
The ‘Umbrella’ singer posted a brief preview of the new track on her social media handle. The fourteen seconds clip features somber humming over stings. Intriguing fans who have been dying to listen to Rihanna.
The megastar and business mogul had her album “ANTI” last released in 2016. And since that, she has been on hiatus. Until recently, rumors about her return were blowing all over social media as Rihanna teased the song’s melodic hum on Instagram.
A few hours later, Marvel enigmatically verified the buzzes on their social media handles. The film studio shared a shimmering and spinning Wakanda Forever logo before transitioning into Rihanna’s signature “R.” Twitter went frenzy.
Fans are overwhelmed by the comeback
According to Tems, who wrote the song, “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 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.” He added, “Rihanna has been an inspiration to me so hearing her convey this song is a great honor.”
The ‘Diamonds’ singer has her events lined up after a break. Weeks before the announcement of her first solo in six years, the megastar had announced that she would be making a return to the stage by headlining the coveted Super Bowl show in 2023. She is also about to appear in the forthcoming fourth edition of the Savage x Fenty fashion show on Prime Video.
The workaholic Rihanna, who is now a mother and a billionaire, is back. Rumors say that there are two songs by Rihanna in Black Panther 2. The facts are still unknown. The soundtrack for Wakanda Forever will be available on November 4.
Till then, fans are thrilled for tomorrow’s “Lift Me Up” release.
