Darius Rucker was so moved by Rihanna’s song at the end of Wakanda Forever, called “Lift Me Up.” Today, he releases his own version of the song.
On Instagram, Darius says, “I couldn’t wait to see Wakanda Forever when it came out & was so moved by the song at the end of the movie that I wanted to put my spin on it. Hope y’all love this version! Listen at the link in my bio.”
One fan responded, “This is really beautiful (heart emoji); thank you for all you do!” Another fan commented, “Darius, this is such a beautiful song! Thank you for your version! God Bless you!” One more fan said, “Well, you lift us up with your music every day!!”
The lyrics of the song include the lyrics, “Lift me up / Hold me down / Keep me close / Safe and sound / Drowning in an endless sea / Take some time and stay with me / Keep me in the strength of your arms / Keep me safe / Safe and sound.”
Here is Rihanna’s version from Wakanda Forever.
Earlier this week, Darius announced the return of his music festival “Riverfront Revival” to North Charleston’s Riverfront Park. The festival will take place on Saturday, October 7, and Sunday, October 8, 2023.
Darius said, “Charleston’s hometown spirit was on full display last year and showed us what a local music festival meant to this community. We know 2023 is going to be an even greater experience for fans. We can’t wait to see you there! The 2023 lineup will be announced soon.”
