PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER’S END credits will play Rihanna’s music throughout the theater. The singer has released “Born Again,” another ballad that displays her variety, as her second song from the soundtrack of the muchawaited Marvel movie. Her first hit was “Lift Me Up.”
“Born Again,” a song co-written by Rihanna, The-Dream, James Fauntleroy, and producer Ludwig Göransson, is a tribute to fortitude and sacrifice made in the name of love, whether it be for a particular person or a location seen as home.
Rihanna sings over an aggressive orchestral arrangement, “I’d sacrifice my heart to this place/I’d give my soul or whatever it takes, never go away/I’ve got enough angels to storm the gates, I’m not frightened.” And look at the courageous, not having it any other way/I miss your emergence and these moments/The simple reflection of me, that mirror cannot alter its perspective.
“Born Again” seems strangely related to the absence of Chadwick Boseman, the original Black Panther, who passed away in 2020 after a personal struggle with cancer, much as “Lift Me Up,” which was written with Tems. The actors paid tribute to the late actor throughout the film’s advertising campaign; his part was not replaced.
To record the two soundtrack songs and to make the announcement that she would perform as the halftime show’s headlining act at Super Bowl 57 the following year, Rihanna broke off her unofficial musical sabbatical. However, it does not imply that she will soon release a new album.
“I immediately thought, ‘Oh my gosh, they’re going to assume my record is coming,’ when I revealed this. I have to go to work,” Rihanna said in a recent interview with The Associated Press. Super Bowl is a another matter. Another item is brand-new music. Fans, do you hear that?
