Rihanna shares new song “Born Again” from Black Panther

Last month, Rihanna unveiled her first single for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack, “Lift Me Up.” Tonight, on the eve of the film’s release, Rihanna returns with a second movie track called “Born Again.” The piano ballad was written by The-Dream, who also wrote Rihanna’s “Umbrella.”

Both Wakanda Forever tracks will have to satiate the Navy for now — this week Rihanna told the Associated Press that her new album wouldn’t be out anytime soon, though she does have a “special project” in the works, as well as, you know, leading the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Listen to “Born Again” below.

[Verse 1]
I’d give my heart to this place
I’d give my soul or whatever it takes, never run away
I’ve got enough angels to storm the gates, I’m not afraid
And behold the brave, not have it no other away
I miss the emergence and these moments of you
The mere reflection of me, that mirror can’t change its view

[Chorus]
So until those rivers run out
It runs through me
Wherever you are, I’ll b? there
We carry on (W? carry on)
Born again

[Verse 2]
I’d give my heart to this place (I’d give my heart to this place)
I’d give my whole soul and whatever it takes, never run away
And I’d relive this just to see your face again
I know that you’d do the same, born again

[Bridge]
Just tell me what I need to do
I’d die and come back just to love you
Just tell me, I’m begging you
Just tell me what I need to do, oh

[Outro]
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh (Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah)
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh (Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Oh, oh, oh, oh)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Oh, oh, oh, oh)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Oh, oh, oh)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Oh, oh, oh, oh)
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
