Jay-Z to help Rihanna with her 2023 Super Bowl Half-time performance.
Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter is reportedly on board to help put together Rihanna’s forthcoming return to the stage for the Super Bowl LVII halftime show in Glendale, Arizona (Feb. 12.)
On Friday (January 13), the media publication confirmed CapitalFM, Hov, in tandem with Roc Nation, will be organizing the highly-anticipated performance with Rihanna set for February 12.
JAY-Z has served as the NFL’s live music entertainment strategist since 2019 and actually signed Rihanna to Def Jam in 2005 during his brief presidency at the iconic label.
“Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn,” Hov said. “A person born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent artists ever. Self-made in business and entertainment.”
Last week, Rihanna shared a teaser for her Super Bowl halftime show on her Instagram page.
In the trailer for the Super Bowl LVII, RiRi acknowledges her fans’ appeals for a new record—and she has a little fun with it. The beginning of the video sees the singer step out onto a walkway as voices in the background comment on how long it’s been since she’s shared her own music.
“It’s been two thousand hundred and ninety days,” one voice says, while another remarks, “Rihanna, we’ve waited for you,” and “Rihanna is who everybody is waiting for.” The voices then all coalesce into a jumble before Rihanna places her finger on her lips to shush the noise. Her 2016 Anti album cut “Needed Me” then plays: “You needed me,” she sings. Well, duh.
In addition to RiRi’s Super Bowl Half-time performance, there's no doubt that ‘Bad Gal RiRi’ will deliver a spectacular halftime show for Super Bowl LVII.
