The R&B singer released the song as scheduled on Friday to the cheer of fans and lovers of her work.

Rihanna earlier announced the new song in what became her first personal project after childbirth.

The songstress had been partially off the music industry since the release of her 2016 album ‘Anti’.

Although she has featured in music belonging to top singers, she had not put out a song of her own in six years.

‘Lift Me Up’ is a rather soulful ‘Black Panther’ theme song that evokes deep feelings of transcendence.

Rihanna co-wrote ‘Lift Me Up’ with Tems, producer Ludwig Göransson, and director Ryan Coogler.

The artistes wrote the single as a tribute to Chadwick Boseman, the Black Panther’ actor who died in 2020.

In her Vogue feature, Rihanna earlier spoke of the prospects of her music career — given her motherhood journey.

“I’m looking at my next project completely differently from the way I had wanted to put it out before. I think this way suits me better, a lot better. It’s authentic, it’ll be fun for me, and it takes a lot of the pressure off,” she said.

“Still, I have businesses that aren’t going to run themselves. My mom handled the three of us with not even close to the amount of resources that I have, so I can absolutely do it. What it looks like? I’m not sure.”
