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.

The 6 Stages of Emotions You’ll Experience While Listening to “Lift Me Up,” a New Song by Rihanna.

Rihanna has returned after keeping us waiting for six years and five months.

I’ve finally listened to her most recent single for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack, and I adore it, despite my original assumption that Lift Me Up would be a Wakanda-themed push-up bra or contour kit.

Get ready to experience the following feelings as you listen to Lift Me Up, which our very own Tems co-wrote.

Doubt

We all like Rihanna, but we are also aware of Ms. Robyn Fenty’s propensity for lying. It makes natural to have doubts about whether she will actually sing on this tune given that she has been promising new songs since 2017. If you accidentally play Lift Me Up’s instrumental, the uncertainty could turn to heartache as you wait impatiently for the vocals to appear.

Apprehension and fear

As soon as the humming begins, dread and excitement follow. In the past six years. How does she sound right now? Still able to sing? Will the song fail miserably? Black Panther: Why? Will you have to defend your favorite online against others who refer to her as “The Mary Kay Lady”?

So many inquiries.

Shock

Rihanna’s song “Liffffft me up” has a good possibility of making you pass out. Although you were expecting the vocals, they nevertheless seem to appear out of nowhere.

Startled sobs

I understand, boo. I’ve also missed her.

You’ll start to lose your mind over how amazing the song is when Lift Me Up begins to swell with the strings and backup vocals. Tears will be shed for Rihanna’s comeback and improvement, the fact that the song truly slaps, and even more tears on the song’s reference to Chadwick Boseman.

Confusion

If it’s Rihanna singing or our sister Temilade, you begin to wonder while sobbing. It is impossible to listen to Lift Me Up without pausing to appreciate Tems’ songwriting and vocal contributions. Recall how we claimed that Tems and Rihanna were essentially the same artist? It’s confirmed by this song.

Happiness

Nature is healing and Rihanna has returned. Fuel shortage, farewell. Buhari the naughty guy, farewell. Hello, dropping Naira. To save us, our mother has returned.

Rihanna Shares Exciting News to Her Fans.

Rihanna has informed her fans that she will perform at the annual football extravaganza’s half-time spectacle.

On Sunday, September 25, 2022, the great singer announced the news on her official Twitter account. In the first 20 minutes after posting a picture of her tattooed arm holding a football, she earned over 500,000 likes. 

She declined the invitation to perform at the event in 2019 three years prior to this statement. Because of how Colin Kaepernick had been treated at the time, she decided against going there. Two years later, the lawsuit was dropped after Kaepernick and the NFL reached a private settlement. He is still unsigned.

On February 12, 2023, the game—which has one of the largest single TV viewership of the year—will take place at Glendale, Arizona’s State Farm Stadium.
