Who sings the background vocals in Rihanna’s “Born Again”?

Rihanna’s new song “Born Again” was just released on all platforms. Two weeks after “Lift Me Up”, Rihanna dropped a second song for the soundtrack of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”. The song was added to the full soundtrack once it hit midnight locally.

She would never run away and is most likely referencing the late Chadwick Boseman in the second verse again: “I relive this just to see your face again, I know that you’d do the same.” Boseman played the Black Panther in the first movie that was released in 2018.

Meanwhile, Rihanna shines through the song with her lower register once again while the outro is based on the movie character’s sounds. Some of them sound like they’re imitating the Jabari tribe of M’Baku.
