Rihanna released her first single in six years on Thursday night. Dubbed 'Lift Me Up', it's the first track to emerge from Marvel’s blockbuster sequel “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”

According to Yahoo, the song, which is a tribute to the life and legacy of Chadwick Boseman, was written by Nigerian singer-songwriter Tems, Rihanna, top film composer Ludwig Göransson, and director Ryan Coogler.

'Lift Me Up' is one of two songs from the film, which is slated to premiere in theatres on November 11. Few other details have been released about the song or the soundtrack album that Rihanna is reportedly curating in a manner similar to the way Kendrick Lamar helmed the first film’s album, according to Yahoo.

Rihanna has made just a handful of featured appearances in the years since her last album, 2016’s 'Anti' — most notably features on N.E.R.D.’s 'Lemon', which she briefly performed with Pharrell at her Diamond Ball in New York in 2019, Kendrick Lamar’s 'Loyalty' and Future’s 'Selfish'.

But, in February, she will be the performer on the world’s largest stage for a musician, the Super Bowl halftime show.

Rihanna has expanded her career far beyond music with her cosmetics brand Fenty Beauty and lingerie line Savage x Fenty, which have made her a billionaire.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness announced on Tuesday that his administration will be constructing a school to train entertainers and musicians.
