Back in 2019, Rihanna turned down performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show (in support of Colin Kaepernick‘s beef with the pro football league). Fast forward to 2023 — and the Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Woman is now set to tear the house down at the NFL Championship game.
Will Rihanna bring Drake or A$AP Rocky out as a guest at the Super Bowl? In an E interview, the songstress addressed potential collabs at the halftime show. “Twelve minutes?” said Rih Rih. “You could actually do that by yourself, but it’s one of those things where you can decorate it however you want. So whether I choose to do it for myself or whether I choose to bring some of my peers on, it’s…” Ms. Fenty paused then furthered, “I don’t know what I’m gonna do yet. It’s gonna be great either way.”
Super Bowl Halftime shows typically last 12-14 minutes, hence, we figure Rih has a trick or two up her sleeve. Apple Music is sponsoring Super Bowl 2023 and spoke out about Rihanna‘s halftime performance. “Rihanna is an incredible recording artist who is a favorite for many millions of Apple Music customers around the world,” commented Oliver Schusser, VP of Apple Music and Beats. “We’re excited to partner with Rihanna, Roc Nation, and the NFL to bring music and sports fans a momentous show — what an incredible artist for the inaugural Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show.”
Can we soon expect a new Rihanna album? The Diamonds singer spoke out about that also: “Super Bowl is one thing. New music is another thing. Do you hear that, fans? The second that I announced this, I said, ‘Oh, my God, they’re going to think my album is coming. I need to get to work.'” Rih Rih just gave birth in May 2022, and hasn’t performed live in roughly 4 years — ergo, why her Super Bowl Halftime Show is vastly essential to the music culture.
Super Bowl LVII will commence at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (3:30 p.m. Pacific, 4:30 p.m. MST ) on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2023.
