Rihanna Will Headline the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show!
Rihanna had best go to “Work” because she is headlining the Super Bowl halftime show. The pop artist hinted at her Super Bowl LVII performance by uploading an Instagram photo of a football on Sunday.
The Apple Music and NFL Twitter feed then verified Rihanna’s Sunday performance. A tweet from Apple Music stated, “Playing now.”
Jay-Z stated in a news statement on Sunday, following the revelation, that Rihanna is “a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has consistently exceeded expectations.”
“A person born on the small island of Barbados who went on to become one of the most prominent artists of all time,” the rapper continued. “Self-made in business and show business”
NFL Head of Music Seth Dudowsky stated in a statement that he was “ecstatic to welcome Rihanna to the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show stage.”
“Throughout her career, Rihanna has been a cultural force of unparalleled magnitude. Dudowsky added, “We look forward to collaborating with Rihanna, Roc Nation, and Apple Music to provide fans another unforgettable Halftime Show performance.”
USA TODAY has reached out to representatives for Rihanna for comment. Apple Music will sponsor the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show for the first time; previous concerts since 2013 were sponsored by Pepsi (which also first sponsored the 2007 show).
The 2022 halftime show was headlined by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and Mary J. Blige, with surprise appearances from 50 Cent and Anderson. Dr. Dre appeared on Apple Music 1 with Ebro Darden on Sunday and said he “can’t wait to see what she’s going to do.”
The rapper stated, “I really admire what she does, how she gets down, how she handles her art, and the full nine.” “It’s incredible. She has the potential to truly impress us. I am aware that we have set the bar quite high.”
In addition, he offers some advice for Rihanna before her halftime show performance.
“Surround yourself with the appropriate people and have fun. “Essentially, it’s about surrounding yourself with creative individuals,” Dr. Dre stated.
The Weeknd, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, and Beyoncé were among the other halftime performers throughout the past decade.
In an October 2019 interview with Vogue, Rihanna stated that she declined the invitation to perform at the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show in Atlanta.
The Grammy-winning singer claimed she did so in sympathy with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who sparked controversy in 2016 by kneeling during the national anthem before football games in protest of police brutality and social inequality.
She told the magazine, “I wouldn’t dare do it.” “For what purpose? Who benefits from this? Not my folks. I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler. There are aspects of that organization with which I completely disagree, and I had no intention of volunteering for them.
In a dispute that was ultimately settled in early 2019, Kaepernick accused the NFL of conspiring to keep him out of the league. In the same year, the NFL collaborated with Roc Nation (which handles Rihanna) to choose Super Bowl performers and plan the halftime performance.
With over 250 million records sold globally, Rihanna is one of the best-selling female musicians of all time. Her most recent album was “Anti” in 2016. Rihanna’s final public performance was at the 2018 Grammy Awards.
Super Bowl LVII is slated to take place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on February 12, 2023.
