Rihanna’s second song for the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” album is titled “Born Again.” Without a doubt, it is another captivating ballad, and the majority of her fans were relieved to hear from her again.

Fans hope Rihanna will announce a new full-length album soon after its release.

However, the singer is quite willing to disappoint.

The song closed out the “BPWF” soundtrack and was produced by an all-star collaboration that included The-Dream and Ludwig Goransson, as well as Grammy-winning songwriter James Fauntleroy.

With the release of Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 4, she informed her devoted fans that her upcoming Super Bowl LVII performance did not necessarily imply the release of a new album.

When TMZ spoke with Rihanna earlier, she admitted to being nervous about her halftime show performance, but her fans’ enthusiastic response to her new music should help calm her nerves. “Lift Me Up” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and with the release of “BPWF” this weekend, Rihanna’s music will most likely be on everyone’s mind… and ears, making them hope that soon an entire album will be in their hands.

Rihanna appears on both ends of the soundtrack for “Born Again,” with “Lift Me Up,” her tribute to Chadwick Boseman, serving as the opening track.

Both songs mark Rihanna’s return to music after a six-year hiatus and the birth of her son, but fans should not expect a new album anytime soon.

“Lift Me Up,” Rihanna’s first song from the soundtrack mentioned above, allowed her to challenge Taylor Swift’s throne head-on.

Rihanna returned to the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 chart after releasing new music for the first time in six years. “Lift Me Up,” from the Marvel Studios film “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” is her 32nd Billboard Top 10 hit, and her first since 2017.

“Wild Thoughts” was No. 2 for seven weeks in a row, and “Love on the Brain” from “Anti” was her final solo appearance. However, “Lift Me Up” only debuted at No. 2, failing to unseat Taylor Swift, whose single “Anti-Hero” remained at No. 1 for the second week in a row.
