Rihanna's Song "Born Again" confirmed to be on the soundtrack of "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever"

The movie “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” just premiered in Los Angeles and it didn’t take long for first reviews to hit social media. Film critic Orlando Maldonado didn’t hesitate to stay until the end of the credits to notice the song title of the second song Rihanna recorded for the movie’s score.

“Lift Me Up” was already officially announced by Marvel and Rihanna, which seems to be the title track of the film. However, as reported by Maldonado, the second song is titled “Born Again” and will also be heard during the end-credits. According to New York Times author Kyle Buchanan, who was also one of the first that tweeted about Rihanna’s involvement in the movie’s score, the song is produced by The Dream. Apparently, both songs are ballads.

Meanwhile both seem to be solo, as nobody reported about an additional singer. It is most likely that Rihanna co-wrote “Born Again” as well since “Lift Me Up” was written by Tems, Rihanna, Ludwig Göransson (score’s producer) and Ryan Coogler (movie’s director). The song is in tribute and in legacy of the late Chadwick Boseman who played King T’Challa in the first movie. Chadwick was most likely the reason why Rihanna even joined the project, as Coogler told media on the red carpet.

The songs are Rihanna’s first solo projects since “ANTI” released in January 2016.
