It’s been five years since Rihanna has been on the stage, but that’s about to change. In just five months the queen will touch down in Glendale, Arizona for The Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show and headline the greatest part of the night, sorry football fans. The show, produced by DPS, Roc Nation, and Jesse Collins, will be the first year of a partnership between the NFL, Apple Music, and Roc Nation.
In an official press release provided by the NFL stated: “We are thrilled to welcome Rihanna to the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show stage,” said Seth Dudowsky, NFL Head of Music. “Rihanna is a once in a generation artist who has been a cultural force throughout her career. We look forward to collaborating with Rihanna, Roc Nation and Apple Music to bring fans another historic Halftime Show performance.”
Rumors are already circling regarding the setlist of Rihanna’s performance, but Billboard is letting RiRi know what they’re hoping for. One can only hope that Ms. Britney Spears will make a surprise appearance for a duet of S&M; one of the greatest collabs of all time.
