At the 95th Academy Awards, Rihanna paid tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman by performing her Oscar-nominated song “Lift Me Up” from the film “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” The performance earned a standing ovation from the audience, including her beau, rapper ASAP Rocky.

Before her performance, Rihanna graced the red carpet in a stunning black outfit paired with silver accessories, proudly flaunting her baby bump. This was her first time being nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), but unfortunately, she lost to “RRR’s Naatu Naatu.”

During her performance, Rihanna’s soulful vocals and the live orchestra left everyone in awe, giving fans and the audience goosebumps. “Lift Me Up” is Rihanna’s first single in six years and is composed by Tems, Rihanna, Ryan Coogler, and Ludwig Goransson, with lyrics written by Tems and Ryan Coogler.

Chadwick Boseman, who played the lead role in “Black Panther,” passed away in 2020, leaving a void in the entertainment industry. Rihanna’s tribute to him was heartwarming and well-received by the audience, showing that Boseman’s legacy lives on.

Aside from her music career, Rihanna has also ventured into acting and has appeared in several films, including “Ocean’s 8” and “Battleship.” She has also been involved in philanthropic work, with her foundation supporting various causes, including education and disaster relief.

Rihanna’s performance at the Oscars in 2023 was a reminder of her talent and the impact that music has in bringing people together. Her tribute to Chadwick Boseman was a touching moment, and her fans look forward to hearing more from her in the future.
