It looks like Rihanna will make her big comeback with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever . According to Hits Daily Double , the Barbadian artist has recorded two new songs for the film, one of which will accompany the credits.
Kyle Buchanan of the New York Times fueled this indiscretion, not yet officially confirmed. The first film could count on All the Stars by Kendrick Lamar and SZA , a huge success that also received an Oscar nomination for Best Song, so it would be no surprise if Disney and Marvel Studios had turned to a great pop star like Rihanna for the sequel.
Her latest studio album, Anti , dates back to 2017, while her latest single is 2020’s Believe It , along with PartyNextDoor . If these rumors were confirmed by the facts, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever would really mark Rihanna ‘s return to her scene after two and a half years of absence. Moreover, the last single of her solo of her is from 2017.
The film is expected to be released on November 9 in Italian cinemas. We will keep you posted.
Rumors are flying and I can add to them: I’ve been hearing for weeks that Rihanna is recording the end-credits song for BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER. How do you follow up a classic like “All the Stars”? By snagging Rihanna’s first big song in years.
