The Bad Gal has been spotted at the studio frequently in recent weeks.
Rihanna’s fans have long made it known that they’re hungry for new music – it’s been six years since the Barbadian singer delivered her Anti album, after all – and according to new reports, we’ll likely be hearing the 34-year-old’s voice land on the soundtrack of a highly anticipated upcoming Disney movie.
According to HitsDailyDouble, the new mother is expected to lend her vocal talents to the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever album, following the 2018 predecessor which came along with an original score and an “inspired-by” effort curated by Compton’s own Kendrick Lamar, who appeared on several of the titles himself.
Initial reports state that the soundtrack will arrive via Marvel/Disney and Def Jam/Westbury Road, with the former credit coming from Rih’s involvement with the project.
There’s less than a month until Black Panther 2 premieres on November 11, and lovers of the franchise have already expressed their concern at what the cinematic universe will be like without Chadick Boseman. However, the exciting musical update has Marvel fanatics feeling eager to see what director Ryan Coogler has in store.
It’s important to note that nothing has been officially confirmed about Rihanna’s involvement at this time, but even if we don’t hear her in the forthcoming film, we’re guaranteed to see her take the stage at the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime show.
