Just last week, music and business mogul, Rihanna, made her long-awaited comeback on the scene following a six year hiatus. Her new single “Lift Me Up”, the lead promotional single for the highly anticipated film, ‘Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever’ served as a tribute to late Chadwick Boseman who played T’Challa. The song also included co-writing credits from BET award winner singer and songwriter, Tems, alongside the film’s director Ryan Coogler, Ludwig Görransson and Rihanna herself. Unsurprisingly, “Lift Me Up” broke records as the No.1 most added song in radio history, and also debuted on Billboard’s ‘Hot Trending Songs’ charts at No.1.

Still reeling from the news, record label heavyweights Roc Nation, DefJam Recordings and Hollywood Records have announced the official ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Music From And Inspired By Soundtrack’ due for release on November 4. The production credits are majorly merited to the movies director, Ryan Coogler, Ludwig Görransson as well as Archie Davis and Dave Jordan. They will be joined alongside over 40 artist from across the globe, including Nigeria’s Tems, Burna Boy, Fireboy DML, CKay and Bloody Civilian.

Speaking about the soundtrack Göransson shared, “Ryan and I talked about the importance of creating an immersive journey of sound and voice. If we used a song in the film, we wanted it to be the entire song, and to be connected to the story. Thematically, we wanted to move the audience from grief to celebration. When you listen to the soundtrack, you can close your eyes and relive the experience of the movie. That was the intention.”
