Black Panther: Wakanda Forever reportedly features new music from Grammy award-winning artist Rihanna.

Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther featured some of the most memorable music in years thanks to composer Ludwig Göransson and hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar. While Göransson handled the film’s score, which won an Academy Award and a Grammy, Lamar produced its star-studded soundtrack, which included artists like Jay Rock, Travis Scott, SZA, Future and The Weeknd.

Is Rihanna joining the Marvel family?

According to a new report, Marvel is enlisting Rihanna for the soundtrack of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. New York Times writer Kyle Buchanan has heard that Rihanna is working on the end-credits song of the Black Panther sequel, which opens in theaters next month. The credits of the first Black Panther movie featured the track “All The Stars” by Kendrick Lamar and SZA.

Rihanna’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever involvement was first reported by the folks at HITS Daily Double. The site brings word that Rihanna is apparently working on two Wakanda Forever songs ahead of her highly-anticipated performance at the Super Bowl LVII halftime show.
