By now, both Joey and I have seen and loved Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. You can see our Twitter reactions here and here, but one thing we both really fell for is the Original Song from Rihanna. “Lift Me Up” is a tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman and arrives at a perfect moment in the film. Today, the song has hit the internet, allowing you to hear it, albeit out of context.
Writing credits on “Lift Me Up” are shared by Ryan Coogler, Ludwig Göransson, and Rihanna. Look for them to not just be Academy Award players in Best Original Song, but potentially the Oscar frontrunners now as well.
Listen to “Lift Me Up” here.
