Stormzy and Burna Boy join Rihanna on the 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' soundtrack.
The full track-listing for ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Music From And Inspired By’ has been unveiled following the release of 'Lift Me Up' by Rihanna.
London rapper Stormzy appears on 'Interlude', while Burna Boy has contributed the track 'Alone'.
Hip-hop legend Future also features on the track ‘Limoncello’ by OG Dayv.
Nigerian rapper and musician Rema makes two appearances on Bloody Civilian's 'Wake Up' and Alemán's Pantera.
Composer Ludwig Göransson, who worked with the Marvel movie's director Ryan Coogler on the soundtrack, told Pitchfork: “Ryan and I talked about the importance of creating an immersive journey of sound and voice. If we used a song in the film, we wanted it to be the entire song, and to be connected to the story.
“Thematically, we wanted to move the audience from grief to celebration. When you listen to the soundtrack, you can close your eyes and relive the experience of the movie. That was the intention.”
The slow-burning 'Lift Me Up' is a tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman, who played the titular character in the first film.
Rihanna was the director's first choice for the soundtrack.
Ryan explained that the new mother was the perfect fit because motherhood is a big theme in the flick.
He said: “Rihanna, man, we knew she was at a point in her life as well where she was focusing on different things — focused on business, motherhood, which is a big theme in our film. We were holding out hope that maybe it could work out and boy did it for this song."
'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' hits theatres on November 11.
