Darius Rucker has recorded and released his version of Rihanna’s Oscar-nominated Black Panther: Wakanda Forever theme song, “Lift Me Up."
Darius said, “I’ve been a huge fan of comics since I was a kid, and I love all of the Marvel movies, so I couldn’t wait to see Wakanda Forever when it came out a few months ago. I was so moved by this song playing at the end of the movie and I felt inspired to try my hand at singing it. I hope y’all love this version we created as much as I do.”
The release comes as Darius puts the finishing touches on his upcoming album, Carolyn’s Boy.
His Riverfront Revival Music Festival will return to Charleston this fall for its second year, with lineups for the October 7-8 event to be announced soon. Early access tickets are available now via RiverfrontRevival.com.
