Rihanna came back on the music scene providing a dud soundtrack for Black Panther’s Wakanda Forever, titled Lift Me Up. Lift Me Up is boring, depressing and Rihanna lacked the vocals skills which typically ignites goose bumps into listeners by the fired up spirits belted from the vocal cords of the talented. Looks like the big wigs made the mistake of selecting Rihanna to belt a remembrance track for Boseman, or did they?
It is possible Rihanna could have been selected for a sound track for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever for promotional reasons. Let’s remember it has been years since the Bajan pop singer released any music, so the mass hearing her on a track for the latest install of the Black Panther franchise would provide the movie with even more attention.
Bottom line, Rihanna is not in her best light with “Lift Me Up.” She could have done waaaaay better. I tune out Lift Me Up when I hear it on the radio as I am driving by changing the station. Yes, it is that bad and depressing.
