Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up” became the most-added song in U.S. radio history. The soundtrack will feature Future, Snow Tha Product, and E-40. Tems recorded a cover of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ “No Woman, No Cry” and Burna Boy performed “Alone.”
Rihanna's first solo track in six years, was the iHeartRadio World Premiere!
Rihanna released "Lift Me Up" off the soundtrack for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The song is as a tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman that was co-written by Tems, Ludwig Göransson, Ryan Coolger and Rihanna, who also has another ballad on the soundtrack, "Born Again."
“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," Tems said about the record. "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.”
"Lift Me Up" is Rihanna's first solo single since 2016's ANTI album, which contains "Work" featuring Drake, "Needed Me" "Love On The Brain," "Kiss It Better" and "Sex With Me."
