Rihanna Navy is happy that her appearance during the Super Bowl halftime show won’t be her last.
“Lift Me Up” will be performed by the music icon during the Oscars, the greatest night in Hollywood.
The song was written by Ludwig Göransson, Ryan Coogler, and Tems, and it was included in the album for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
It is Rihanna’s first Oscar nomination for the best original track.
Jimmy Kimmel will serve as host of the 95th Academy Awards presentation, which will be screened on March 12.
Rihanna captivated Super Bowl watchers earlier this month with a soaring solo half-time performance in which she made the public announcement of her second baby with her husband, rapper A$AP Rocky.
Fans of Rihanna, a lot of whom hadn’t seen her perform since she was on the Grammys stage in 2018 to perform “Wild Thoughts” alongside DJ Khaled, highly awaited the 13-minute concert.
Rihanna has recently stepped away from the music industry to concentrate on her commercial endeavours, such as her lingerie label Savage X Fenty and makeup company Fenty Beauty.
After the release of her most recent album, ANTI, in 2016, Lift Me Up is Rihanna’s first solo song.
Commenting on her seven-year absence from music, Rihanna claimed she is now at a place where she wants to engage in creative exploration.
Rihanna will join artists like Beyonce and Lady Gaga, who have both shone as musical guests on the “Academy Award” stage in recent years, by doing a performance at the Oscars.
Lift Me Up, a song she wrote, will compete for the award for best original song against Lady Gaga’s Hold My Hand from Top Gun: Maverick, for which she is receiving her fourth nomination overall.
Rihanna has won the Grammy Awards nine times. Eight of her albums have achieved multi-platinum status, while 14 of her singles have peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
