The song "Lift Me Up" is a touching tribute to the late actor Chadwick Boseman, who played the title character in the first film. Boseman sadly lost his battle with cancer at age 43, but his memory and legacy will live on forever.


The song "Lift Me Up" is so beautiful and empowering, and the music video is just as moving. It features footage from the film "Black Panther", which is already groundbreaking in its own right. The song was written by Tems, Oscar-winner Ludwig Göransson, Rihanna and Ryan Coogler, and it is just one more example of the amazing talent that they all possess.
