Yusssss. Love this for us!!
Rihanna and the NFL have announced that she’s headlining the 2023 Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show. It marks Rihanna’s first public performance since her appearance with DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller at the 2018 Grammy Awards. Super Bowl LVII takes place on February 12 and will broadcast live on Fox.
The news comes after updates regarding this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show. Following rumours of Taylor Swift being asked to perform, it was reported that the singer-songwriter turned down the opportunity. Apple Music recently stepped in as the new presenting sponsor of the Super Bowl Halftime Show, taking the place of Pepsi after a decade.
Prior to her 2018 Grammys performance, Rihanna’s last tour was a 2016 run behind her last album Anti. This year, she welcomed her first child with A$AP Rocky. The same year she performed at the Grammys, Vogue ran an article indicating that Rihanna was making a reggae album; she later confirmed as much, but the album has yet to materialize.
Halftime performance AND a reggae album? We are being fed well!!
