Rihanna has announced that she will be releasing a new song from her upcoming album on the soundtrack for the latest Marvel movie, Spider-Verse: Into The Spider-Verse. The song is called “Wakanda Forever” and will likely feature traditional African drums created with newer technology.
This will be the second time that Rihanna has worked with Marvel, having previously contributed the song “Ashes” to the film’s soundtrack.
Speaking about the new song, she said, “I’m so excited to be a part of such an iconic film. Wakanda Forever is an amazing anthem and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
Rihanna’s new album is set to be released this Friday, December 14th.
The new Rihanna song is about Wakanda
Rihanna’s new album, “Wakanda Forever”, is set to be released this week and it’s safe to say that the title track is about Wakanda. The song starts off with a simple piano melody before Rihanna comes in with her powerful vocals. The lyrics are all about Wakanda and its people, with references to the Black Panther movie and comics. It’s clear that Rihanna is a huge fan of Wakanda and its culture, and she wants to show her support for the fictional country through her music.
How the ‘Wakanda Forever’ song came to be
When it was announced that Rihanna would be appearing in Marvel’s “Black Panther” movie, fans were wondering what kind of role she would play. Now we know – she is the voice behind the film’s official soundtrack! The “Wakanda Forever” song is one of the many tracks featured on the record and it perfectly encapsulates the film’s spirit of empowerment.
Rihanna spoke about how the track came to be, saying: “I was in the studio and I got a call from Kendrick [Lamar] and he told me about this movie and I was like, done. I didn’t even have to hear anything else…I just love superhero movies.
And then he started telling me about the story and I was like ‘Oh my god, this is amazing.’ And then he played me a few beats and I was sold completely. It all happened so fast but it was such an honor to be a part of something so big.”
The result is an anthemic anthem that will get you pumped for whatever challenges come your way. So put on your Panther suit and get ready for Wakanda Forever!
What we can expect from her planned music video
Rihanna teased fans with a clip of her new music video on Instagram, and it looks like we can expect an epic production! The video appears to be set in Wakanda, the fictional African nation from Marvel’s “Black Panther” movie and features RiRi as a warrior queen. She posted the clip with the caption “Wakanda Forever,” so it’s safe to say that the video will have a strong Afrocentric theme. If the rest of the video is anything like the clip, we can expect an amazing visual, fierce choreography, and a whole lot of black girl magic!
