Fans shared their excitement as they wrote ‘can’t wait for this’ and ‘the song will be amazing!’

The artwork for the imminent release is a close-up grayscale image of RiRi with her hair surrounding her face.

She wears shimmery eyeshadow on her eyelids and her shapely pout is coated in a matte lipstick. 

Along the left side of the photo in white all-caps font, with sideways text orientation, reads ‘Rihanna Lift Me Up.’

In just an hour of uploading the post, the Bajan superstar racked up more than two million likes from her following of 137 million on Instagram.

The new post comes days after the official Black Panther: Wakanda Forever social media accounts shared a virtual announcement for the song.

The clip opened with the title of the film coming into view, accompanied by the hum of suspenseful music.

As the rest of the letters from ‘Wakanda Forever’ faded away, the one remaining was an ‘R,’ in an obvious reference to the songstress.

Against a black screen, the date ‘10.28.22,’ appeared, alerting fans of the release date. The caption had an emoji of eyes and the hashtag, ‘#WakandaForever.’

On Wednesday evening Rihanna stepped out to attend the Black Panther movie premiere in Hollywood.

She was joined by beau A$AP Rocky for the glitzy, star-studded event, for which a purple carpet was rolled out.

The beauty mogul, who welcomed her first child with the rapper in May, wore a sequined covered strapless gown.

The look had long, coordinating leather gloves that stretched well above her elbows.

According to Pitchfork, the longtime entertainer penned the tune with music artist Tems, producer Ludwig Göransson, and director Ryan Coogler. 

A press release noted that the piece of music was created ‘as a tribute to the extraordinary life and legacy of Chadwick Boseman.’

The late Boseman shocked fans when he died in 2020, after keeping his battle with colon cancer completely private.

He was the star of the first Black Panther film, which stole the hearts of audiences in 2018.
