Rihanna's “Wakanda Forever” is the lead single from the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and it was released on Friday, a day after the film's Hollywood premiere.
The song, which Rihanna has given the title “Lift Me Up,” is her first piece of original music to be released since 2016, and it marks her return to the music industry after becoming a mother for the first time.
Since then, she has been on a break, and it is anticipated that this song will launch her into the subsequent stage of her career. Tems, the Oscar winner Ludwig Goransson, Rihanna, and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler collaborated on the song “Lift Me Up” as a way to pay homage to the extraordinary life and legacy of the late Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman.
The song was produced by Goransson and was recorded in a total of five different countries. On November 4th, the complete soundtrack will be made available.
It also follows the hit number “All the Stars,” which was performed by Kendrick Lamar and SZA in the first film. Lamar was also the executive producer of the soundtrack album for the first film.
Goransson, the composer of the film's score that was nominated for an Academy Award and won, has also participated in the production of Wakanda Forever.

In contrast to the uplifting hip-hop track “All the Stars,” which is a ballad, “Lift Me Up” is more of a sombre tune. Around a week ago, rumors began to circulate that Rihanna would be contributing to the soundtrack album.
After teasing the song on social media and then making a jaw-dropping appearance at the premiere of the film, it was revealed that she would be performing it.
In addition to Angela Bassett and Martin Freeman, the cast of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever also includes Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Dominique Thorne, Florence Kasumba, Michaela Coel, and Tenoch Huerta. The film is scheduled to be released in theaters on November 11.
