Barbadian singer and actress, Rihanna to release her new music, “Lift Me Up.” Check out the full teaser below.
The track marks the lead single on Marvel’s blockbuster sequel “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” It is a tribute to the life and legacy of Chadwick Boseman and was written by Tems, Ludwig Göransson, Rihanna, and director Ryan Coogler.
The song will be released on Friday, Oct. 28, and the movie premieres in theaters on Nov. 11. Rihanna briefly teased the song’s melodic hum on social media, but little else is known about the style and sound of “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,” Tems said in a statement. “Rihanna has been an inspiration to me so hearing her convey this song is a great honor.”
