Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has released another Rihanna single from the Marvel's movie soundtrack. "Lift Me Up" was the first song dropped in the lead-up to Ryan Coogler's latest epic. Now, "Born Again" joins the ranks on the playlist as well. Not many people could have expected that the multi-platinum recording artist would come out of her hiatus to deliver these poignant odes to Chadwick Boseman's life and career. Now, Marvel fans are discussing their feelings about this movie after the release. With these new drops, there is the discussion of Rihanna's new work also to parse through. Despite it being a bit more somber than some would have been expecting, there's something really emotional and clear about the two songs and their approach to the film they've been attached to. Check it out for yourself down below!
"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," explained Tems. "Rihanna has been an inspiration to me so hearing her convey this song is a great honor."
