For one of the greatest concerts next year, Rihanna is scheduled to return to the stage. As she announced on Instagram, the singer will perform as the halftime show's headlining act in February 2023. The well-known singer posted a photo to Instagram on Sunday, teasing that she would perform at an NFL event the next year while holding up a football.
The same statement was corroborated by Jay-Z, who earlier inked a deal with the NFL to oversee the league's musical entertainment, according to Hollywood Reporter. "Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn. A person born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent artists ever. Self-made in business and entertainment." Marking the first stage performance of Rihanna since welcoming her and A$AP Rocky’s baby boy.
Since Rihanna will be performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show next year, contrary to earlier rumours that Taylor Swift would, Rihanna will indeed be performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Dr Dre, Eminem, 50 Cent, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, and Kendrick Lamar performed in last year's Super Bowl halftime show. The Super Bowl will begin on February 12 and be held at Glendale, Arizona's State Farm Stadium.
The 2020 Super Bowl halftime performance by Jennifer Lopez and Shakira made headlines recently after the former discussed it in her documentary Halftime. In the documentary, Lopez could be seen expressing her anxiety about performing at the halftime show alongside another performer. She even spoke with Shakira about it and remarked, "If it was going to be a double headliner, they should have given us 20 minutes."
