Things are finally looking up for Rihanna's die-hard fans as there is new music on the way from the artist.

She officially returns to music after her long hiatus this Friday with a single for the ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ soundtrack.

Marvel Studios confirmed the news today following the various rumours spreading online.

The company shared a short teaser on social media that saw the film’s name morph into a single ‘R’, with the date “10.28.22” beneath it.

Rihanna fans filled the Instagram comments section, sharing their excitement for new music.

However, RiRi was among the commenters and offered the strongest confirmation herself.

She replied to the trailer with a pair of emojis, the Wakanda Forever emoji alongside a red heart.

Earlier this month, it was reported that the singer's single would be the end-credits song for the Black Panther sequel.

The first film in the Black Panther series featured an iconic soundtrack curated by Kendrick Lamar. K. Dot’s Oscar-nominated collaboration “All the Stars” with SZA was among the highlights.

Riri's track will mark the pop icon’s first solo release in six years, following her 2016 album Anti.

Since that record, she has collaborated with the N.E.R.D. on “Lemon,” PartyNextDoor on “Believe It,” Future on “Selfish,” DJ Khaled on “Wild Thoughts,” and Kendrick Lamar on “Loyalty.”

Despite the long wait for new music from the superstar – and her recently becoming a mother for the first time – Rihanna reassured fans earlier this year that they were “still going to get music”.

Last month (September 26), Rihanna was announced as the headliner for the Super Bowl LVII halftime show, which will take place at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on February 12, 2023.

Speaking to TMZ after the announcement, the singer said of the prestigious performance: “I’m nervous, but I’m excited.”
