Rihanna to Perform at Super Bowl 57 Halftime Show
Rihanna is set to perform at one of the biggest stages in music.
Fans of Rihanna know that she has been on a painfully long hiatus from music and performing. A six-year hiatus from releasing music, to be exact. However, a recent announcement shows us that the Rihanna drought is nearing its end.
The world-famous singer, songwriter, cosmetics entrepreneur, fashion icon, and all-around superstar recently posted a picture on Instagram to announce she will be performing at the Super Bowl 2023 Halftime Show next February.
Her post consisted of her hand holding an NFL football in front of a simple white backdrop with nothing in the caption except a period.

Apple Music, who is replacing Pepsi as the official Super Bowl Halftime sponsor, tweeted the same photo Rihanna had posted with the caption: “IT’S ON. @rihanna will take the stage for the first ever Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show on 2.12.23.”
The 2023 Super Bowl will be the 57th championship game for the NFL and will be held at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
As is normally the tradition, Rihanna will likely bring out a musical guest for the show. Fans online have already begun speculating who that might be and what songs she is likely to perform.

A quick search on Google or social media will show the hundreds of dream setlists that have already been created, most of them including hits like “Rude boy,” “S&M,” “Needed Me,” and “Please Don’t Stop The Music.”
People have also been suspecting that she may bring out her boyfriend and superstar rapper A$AP Rocky. Or that she will bring out Jay-Z or Eminem as they have been longtime collaborators with the pop star.
Whatever she sings, and whoever she sings it with, I think we can all agree that this is an iconic way to leave a long-time music hiatus and that we are just happy to see Rihanna performing music again.
