For the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday, Apple Music, NFL, and Roc Nation collaborates for the first time.
Rihanna’s much-anticipated halftime performance is her first live performance in seven years.
She is one of the most popular pop performers of the last two decades, but she hasn’t released an album since 2016’s “Anti.”
In April 2022, Rihanna was added to Forbes’ Billionaires List.
At the Apple Music news conference on Thursday, Rihanna discussed how she was requested to appear on the show three months after giving birth to her son.
She stated, “There’s something that happens when you become a mother when you feel like you can take on the world and can accomplish anything.”
“One of the biggest stages in the world is the Super Bowl. Even though it was terrifying for me because it had been seven years since I had performed on stage, the challenge of it all was thrilling. I must accomplish it this year. It’s crucial that my son understands that”.
The performance’s trailer, which was made available on Apple Music on Thursday and included “Rihanna Drive” in Barbados, the singer’s hometown, was a reference to the artist.
Fans are encouraged to sing along using Apple Music Sing, explore the pop star’s career using the “Spatial Audio” function, and tune into Apple Music Radio for game analysis and a recap show on Monday.
The big picture: The nine-time Grammy winner will follow several legendary female performers like Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Katy Perry, Madonna, and Lady Gaga. She also spoke about representation at Thursday’s press conference.
