People Compare Rihanna Humming on Her New Song ‘Lift Me Up’ to Kid Cudi, Some Think She’s Better
On Wednesday (Oct. 26), Rihanna released a teaser of her musical return for her new single from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack,"Lift Me Up," which officially dropped today (Oct. 28). RiRi delivers a slow ballad on the Terms-penned, Ludwig Göransson-produced track, which serves as a homage to the late Chadwick Boseman, who played the lead character of King T’Challa in the first film. The song is a slow-burn that finds Rihanna beginning the track with a low hum.
"tbh Rihanna humming is way better than kid cudi’s idc what y’all think," one person tweeted after hearing a clip of "Lift Me Up."
"Listening to Rihanna hum in the beginning of her new song is like listening to Kid Cudi humming, i love it sm," another person posted.

Kid Cudi's hum is a big part of his musical range and an aspect of his music that fans have often pointed out as being what draws them to many of his songs.
