It’s been six years since we’ve heard a solo effort from Rihanna.

Today, the Bajan songstress returns with the leading single from the soundtrack to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever titled ‘Lift Me Up.’

Written by Tems, Rihanna, Ryan Coogler, and Ludwig Göransson, the ballad is a tribute to the life and legacy of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, who passed away in August 2020 from cancer.

“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. I tried to imagine what it would feel like if I could sing to them now and express how much I miss them,” said Tems. “Rihanna has been an inspiration to me so hearing her convey this song is a great honor.”

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Music From and Inspired By, will another song by Rihanna titled “Born Again.” Produced by The-Dream and James Fauntelory, “Born Again” will be released via Rihanna’s label Westbury Road, in partnership with Roc Nation, Def Jam, and Hollywood Records on Nov. 4.

Drake recently took to Instagram Stories to advocate for the freedom of fellow Canadian rapper Tory Lanez, as Lanez prepares for his appeal hearing. Lanez had been sentenced to 10 years in prison in December 2022.

In a straight forward message accompanied by a photo of Lanez, Drake wrote, “3 you.” Lanez had been convicted of assault with an automatic firearm, possession of an unregistered loaded firearm in a vehicle, and reckless discharge of a firearm.

Lanez penned a letter to his fans on Instagram, maintaining his innocence after receiving his sentence:

To The Umbrellas,

I have never let a hard time intimidate me. I will never never let no jail time eliminate me. Regardless of how they try to spin my words, I have always maintained my innocence and I always will.

This week in court I took responsibility for all verbal and intimate moments that I shared with the parties involved. … That’s it.

In no way shape or form was I apologizing for the charges I’m being wrongfully convicted of. I remain on the stance that I refuse to apologize for something that I did not do.

I’ve faced adversity my whole life and every time it looked like I would lose, I came out on top. This is nothing but another moment where my back is against the wall and I refuse to stop fighting till I come out victorious.

Tough times don’t last, tough people do.

To my family, friends and umbrellas thank you for your continued support.

See you soon.
