Director of Black Panther Ryan Coogler shared his thoughts on Rihanna stating that she was a perfect fit for the job citing her experience with motherhood as one of the deciding factors. According to him, that was what led him to convince her to take the job.
Composer Ludwig Göransson also spoke on hearing Rihanna for the first time in the studio in six years and how much conviction and softness there was in her sound that enabled her to take the chorus of the song to a new level. “After three weeks of meticulously fine-tuning every word, the feeling and melody line that Rihanna added to the chorus was a feeling of timelessness. It felt like the past, present and future all came together at the same time” he said.
