Jay-Z, whose company Roc Nation is helping to coordinate the show released a statement saying: “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.”
Fans have been speculating on the details of this announcement, including a rumoured setlist and any special guests she is likely to perform with.
Below Is All The Tea We Have About The Show so far:
What Is The 2023 Super Bowl Date?
The 2023 Super Bowl will be held on Sunday, February 12, at Glendale, Arizona’s State Farm Stadium.
It will be the 57th Super Bowl, and Apple Music will be a partner for the Halftime performance for the first time.
What is the setlist for the 2023 super Bowl?
No definite setlist for Rihanna’s performance has been released to date.
That hasn’t stopped people from speculating about the songs she’ll be singing throughout the event, though.
It will be challenging to pick only a few songs for her to sing given that she has 20 years’ worth of successes to her credit.
Fans have been speculating that the setlist will include hits like ‘Umbrella’, ‘We Found Love’, ‘Needed Me’ and ‘Diamonds’. Rihanna has taken a break from music to launch her successful Fenty Beauty makeup line, and also to raise her son who she welcomed in May with boyfriend A$AP Rocky.
Will There Be Special Guests At The 2023 Super Bowl?
There are currently no confirmed guests to perform with Rihanna during the Super Bowl.
Fans have however continued to speculate about who will be performing with Rihanna despite this.
Some people have speculated Rihanna’s boyfriend ASAP Rocky, while others have suggested Britney Spears.
According to TMZ, Rihanna and her creative team are working with a list of 50 possible guests to perform with her.
Sources have claimed that everyone that Riri has collaborated with over the years may possibly appear, including Kanye West, Jay-Z, Drake, Pharrell and Calvin Harris.
However, a final decision has not been made yet on who may join her, and there is still a chance that she will appear solo too.
