Director Ryan Coogler speaks on working with Rihanna

On November 4, the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” soundtrack will be released. On Wednesday, the full tracklist was revealed, as it includes Future, Burna Boy, Tems, E-40, and more. The soundtrack is led by Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up,” which was released laost week. That was also Rihanna’s first solo song, since early 2016. The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever film is also finally arriving on November 11.

Black Panther Director Ryan Coogler also recently spoke with Gayle King of CBS, as one of the topics was bringing Rihanna on board, for the soundtrack. Coogler believes that Rih was really drawn to the film’s trailer, as well as Tems remixing Kendrick’s “Alright.” Tems was also who wrote Rihanna’s Lift Me Up.

“She has a lot of great people around. Jay Brown especially. It was really talking to the folks around her, cause she was in a position where her life was changing, she was becoming a mom,” he shared. “I think the trailer is what spoke to her the most. She kind of saw the performance that the actors were putting down, what the tone . Heard that beautiful music from Tems mixed with Kendrick. It timed up with her coming in to a space where she was ready to engage with the world musically again.”
