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.
