Rihanna Provides a Glimpse into ‘Black Panther’ Sequel with Emotional #NewVideo for ‘Lift Me Up’

Hours after her return to music with “Lift Me Up,” Rihanna has now released the video.

In matching the somber feeling of the song, we see Rihanna alone on a beach, in what looks like daybreak and reflecting.

Lift me up, Hold me down/ Keep me close, Safe and sound/ Burning in a hopeless dream, Hold me when you go to sleep/ Keep me in the warmth of your love, When you depart/ Keep me safe, Safe and sound

The “Lift Me Up” ballad serves as a tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who died at 43 from colon cancer in 2020, and will reportedly play during a funeral scene for the actor in the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever sequel.

The sequel will arrive in theatres on Nov. 11.

This report will be updated.
