Rihanna Will Headline The Super Bowl halftime show

Rihanna Announces She Is Headlining Super Bowl’s HalfTime Show

After previously declining in 2019, Rihanna has accepted to headline the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show. The Pop/R&B singer announced via Instagram posting a photo of a hand holding a football. The surprise announcement was completely unexpected, as Rihanna has not released music in seven years. Also, in 2019 she refused their offer because of the NFL’s unjust treatment of civil rights activist and quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. Undoubtedly, Rihanna has been one of the most requested artists for the halftime show due to her dominance and influence in the music industry. The “Rude Boy” singer began releasing music in 2005 and has been a powerful force in music ever since. Rihanna has proven she has longevity, a timeless catalog of hits, and global outreach. Therefore, she is the perfect performer for the Super Bowl halftime show. 

Rihanna’s Most Recent Album 

To begin with, fans have been feening for new music from the grammy-winning singer. Her last album Anti released in 2016 and has over 4 billion streams on Spotify. Anti has proven the test of time garnering thousands of daily streams. The sixth track “Woo ” went viral on TikTok just this year bringing more attention to the album. Unfortunately, Rihanna has not released a solo single since then, let alone teased new music. The 34-year old singer recently gave birth to her first child with rapper A$AP Rocky. 

Rihanna’s Greatest Hits

In short, The Super Bowl halftime show lasts between 12-30 minutes where a widely renowned artist performs hit songs from their discography. The tracklist usually contains some throwbacks as well as their most recent songs. If we explore Rihanna’s catalog, we have older hits “Pon de Replay,” “Umbrella,” “S&M” and “We Found Love” which are over a decade old. Her 2012 album Unapologetic sparked hit songs “Stay,” “Pour It Up,” and seven-times platinum single “Diamonds.” Then, we have hits from her previous album Anti including “Work,” “Needed Me” and “Love On The Brain.” The Super Bowl halftime show will likely include live performances of most if not all of these smash hits.
