On Friday, Grammy-nominated artist Tems from Nigeria received praise from American singer Robyn “Rihanna” Fenty.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, the beauty entrepreneur is making a significant comeback with Tems in the brand-new song “Lift Me Up.”
The song, which serves as the album’s lead single, was co-written by Tems, Rihanna, Ryan Coogler, and Oscar winner Ludwig Göransson in memory of the late Chadwick Boseman, who passed away from cancer at the age of 43 in 2020.
Tems expressed her gratitude for being a part of the project on Instagram as she revealed the cover art for “Lift Me Up.”
She wrote: ”Blessed to have written this song in honour of Chadwick Boseman and even more blessed to hear the baddest @badgalriri voice it to perfection.”
Rihanna in response replied: “It’s the pen for me. Love to you sistren.’
Tems on Thursday via the microblogging platform, Twitter, in a statement explained her role in the song, ‘Lift Me Up’.
She wrote: ”After speaking with Ryan and hearing his direction for the film and the song, I wanted to write something that portrays a warm embrace from all the people that I’ve lost in my life.
”I tried to imagine what it would feel like if I could sing to them now and express how much I miss them. Rihanna has been an inspiration to me so hearing her convey this song is a great honour.”
