Tems is the Co-Writer of Rihanna’s ‘Wakanda Forever’ Soundtrack


The singer and cosmetics tycoon, Rihanna is making a big comeback with a Black Panther new song called “Lift Me Up” after taking a lengthy break from the music industry. This song serves as the album’s lead single for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”

The lead promotional single for the highly anticipated film, features writing credits from BET award winning singer and songwriter, Tems.

Tems is assisted by Rihanna, the film’s director, Ryan Coogler and Ludwig Görransson, Swedish composer and record producer for the ‘Black Panther:Wakanda Forever’.

While discussing the song, Tems said that she wanted to write the song as though she was talking to the people she had lost to death.

“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.

The Nigerian singer has continued to become well-known and following her success at becoming the first Nigerian artist to ever debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 list, she has continued to gain momentum as one of Africa’s fast-rising stars.
