CKay has persisted in pushing limits that no other African artist has with the help of this single song. He makes a stronger case for himself as an Afrobeats legend. 2019 saw the inaugural release of the popular song “Love Nwantiti” under the label Chocolate City. A remix with Joeboy and Kwami Eugene, however, became a hit after a year.

Burna Boy, Rema, Tems, CKay, and Other Artists on the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Album (Listen Here)

Released through Roc Nation Records/Def Jam Recordings/Hollywood Records is the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Music From and Inspired By soundtrack, which was created by Ryan Coogler, Ludwig Göransson, Archie Davis, and Dave Jordan. The American premiere of Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which was produced by Kevin Feige and Nate Moore, takes place on November 11, 2022.

Lift Me Up, the lead single from Rihanna, made history by becoming the most added song in U.S. radio history. It also attracted the biggest single-day audience and the most spins ever.

Over 40 international artists recorded songs for The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Music From and Inspired By soundtrack in Lagos, Nigeria, Mexico City, London, and Los Angeles. Rihanna, Burna Boy, Rema, Tems, Fireboy DML, OG DAYV, Future, CKay, PinkPantheress, E-40, and many more are among the featured musicians.

The score and the original songs on the soundtrack were written and produced by Oscar, Grammy, and two Emmy winner Ludwig Göransson. He was particularly prepared to oversee all sections of the soundscape due to his significant experience working as a producer of musicians (Childish Gambino, Adele, Haim, Justin Timberlake), as well as scoring movies and TV shows (Black Panther, Creed, The Mandalorian).

Coogler and Göransson set out to create an avant-garde soundscape for their fourth film project, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, where Göransson claims, “The songs and score are one.” With Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the two artists finally brought their long-discussed method to life. They had been talking about it ever since they were students at the USC Film School.

Over 2500 hours were spent by Göransson in what turned out to be a major labor of love, involving six studios, three continents, and five different countries. The audience will hear more than 250 musicians, two orchestras, two choirs, and more than 40 vocalists throughout the entire movie.

Recording sessions were organized in Lagos, Nigeria, Mexico City, and Abbey Road Studios in London because the plot is influenced by Mesoamerican and Nigerian traditions. Producers collaborated with well-known musicians from Lagos, including Tems, who is now a center for musical creativity. The soundtrack also includes work from up-and-coming rappers and musicians from Mexico City, such as the Mayan-only rapper Pat Boy.

To investigate and examine Mayan music, Göransson collaborated closely with music archeologist Alejandro Rojas while in Mexico City. The soundscape’s composition included instruments from Mesoamerican and Nigerian civilizations.
