Rihanna in response replied: “It’s the pen for me. Love to you sistren.’
Tems Explains Role In New Song
Tems on Thursday via the microblogging platform, Twitter, in a statement explained her role in the song, ‘Lift Me Up’.
She wrote: ”After speaking with Ryan and hearing his direction for the film and the song, I wanted to write something that portrays a warm embrace from all the people that I’ve lost in my life.
”I tried to imagine what it would feel like if I could sing to them now and express how much I miss them. Rihanna has been an inspiration to me so hearing her convey this song is a great honour.”
