Parenthood sure does look good on Rihanna and A$AP Rocky. The power couple just made their first red carpet appearance since welcoming their baby boy earlier this year, attending the world premiere of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” in Hollywood on Oct. 26. They coordinated outfits for the glamorous outing — Rihanna stunning in a beige sequin dress, while A$AP Rocky wore a denim-on-denim look in the same muted color. They could hardly contain their smiles as they posed side by side for the cameras.
The evening not only celebrated the Marvel sequel’s upcoming Nov. 11 release but also Rihanna’s highly-anticipated return to music, as she’s recorded a new song for the film’s soundtrack. Titled “Lift Me Up,” the track is a tribute to the late “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman and will be released on Oct. 28. Rihanna collaborated with composer Ludwig Göransson, director Ryan Coogler, and singer-songwriter Tems to bring the track to life.
Of course, the rest of the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” cast flooded the purple carpet at Dolby Theatre to celebrate the movie’s world premiere. Newcomers Michaela Coel, Tenoch Huerta, and Dominique Thorne — who portray characters Aneka, Namor, and Riri Williams (aka Ironheart), respectively — were in attendance alongside stars from the first “Black Panther” film, including Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Michael B. Jordan, and more. Although Daniel Kaluuya isn’t reprising his role of W’Kabi in the sequel, he was also on hand to honor his former castmates.
