Black Panther Director Ryan Coogler spoke earlier The Hollywood Reporter about getting Rihanna to end her musical hiatus. He explained that he wanted the film’s closing song not only to honor the memory of leading actor Chadwick Boseman, who passed away in 2020, but also to reflect the experience of parenthood.

“It’s her experience of loss and being a mother. She is a new person now. [Parenthood] changes you to the core. I hear it in her voice. It’s her, but it’s a new her,” Coogler told the outlet.

“When I first got the call to do it again this year, I was like, ‘Are you sure?’ Like, I’m three months postpartum, like, should I be making important decisions like this now? Like, I might regret that,” she said during the Apple Music Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show press conference. “But when you become a mom, something just happens where you feel like you can take on the world, you can do anything.”
