After six long, lonely years without new Rihanna material on our playlists, the soundtrack of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has finally pulled through: placing the iconic artist back in the front seat with her featuring single, “Lift Me Up”.

Proving that her time away from the mic has only nurtured her soul-drenched vocals, she commands the track with a touching tribute to the legacy of Chadwick Boseman — singing with an intensity that plucks at harp and heartstrings simultaneously. Seeped in a paradoxical tone that balances sombre and uplifting themes, “Lift Me Up” takes listeners on a journey through hardship with a downtempo flow — leaving Rihanna’s voice to carry us up into the light.

Welcomed with an entourage of memes, “Lift Me Up” has already been met with sizeable hype from fans old and new. To mark the release of the single, we rounded up our favourite internet reactions since the premiere of the single — proving almost as entertaining as the music itself. Only slightly, of course.
