 Earlier this month, the nine-time Grammy award-winner announced she is expecting another child with rapper, A$AP Rocky following the Super Bowl, where she performed live for the first time in seven years.

In the last few years, the ‘Umbrella’ crooner has taken a break from music to focus on her business ventures, like her Fenty Beauty make-up brand and her ‘Savage X Fenty’ lingerie line.

‘Lift Me Up’ marks the first solo song Rihanna has recorded since her last album, ‘ANTI’, which was released in 2016.

Speaking about her return to music after a seven-year hiatus, Rihanna said she is at a point where she wants to explore creatively.

“I am feeling open to exploring, discovering, creating things that are new, things that are different, things that are off, weird. Might not ever make sense to my fans … I want to have fun with music,” Rihanna said ahead of her Super Bowl performance.

With a performance at the Oscars, Rihanna joins the likes of Beyonce and Lady Gaga, who both dazzled as musical guests on the Academy Award stage in recent years.

Meanwhile, ‘Lift Me Up’, will compete for the best original song title against Lady Gaga, who is up for her fourth-ever nomination for ‘Hold My Hand’ from Top Gun: Maverick.

The 95th Academy Awards ceremony will be broadcast on March 12, 2023 and hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
