Rihanna hasn’t delivered much new music in the past few years, apart from ‘Lift Me Up‘ which appeared on the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack.
The track also earned an Oscar nomination and she chose the 95th Academy Awards for the first ever performance of it. Backed by a full orchestra, RiRi delivered a vocally solid performance of the song which serves as a tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman. ASAP Rocky was in the building to cheer his lady on.
Watch it below. Rihanna ultimately lost to M.M. Keeravani’s ‘Naatu Naatu’ from the Indian film RRR for “Best Original Song.”
Rihanna recently said she aims to release a new album this year.
