Rihanna Shatters Social Media With Super Bowl Announcement
Everyone’s buzzing over Rihanna headlining Apple Music’s first Super Bowl Halftime show in a bold move that sent the whole entire internet into a TIZZY.
The last time most of us saw the superstar mogul performing was at the 2018 Grammys alongside Bryson Tiller and DJ Khaled for an internet-shattering rendition of smash hit ‘Wild Thoughts.’

For what feels like forever, fans have pestered Rih about new music–a snippet, a single, a kazoo solo, anything–that seems like more of a reality based on her confirming next year’s Super Bowl performance.
Hip-Hop Legends React To Rihanna Headlining Super Bowl Halftime Show
With Rihanna finally returning to something, anything, music-related, the music world (including some of the biggest names in Hip-Hop) can’t wait to see what she’s coming with.
“Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn,” said Jay-Z who, along with entertainment agency Roc Nation, executive produces the NFL halftime show.
“A person born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent artists ever. Self-made in business and entertainment.”
Dr. Dre shared Hov’s sentiments while speaking to Ebro about the buzzy halftime show.
“Oh, my god,” said Dre, who shared the Super Bowl stage with Eminem, 50 Cent, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, and Snoop Dogg last year. “Let me tell you something, man. I actually just got the news that Rihanna’s going to do it, and I’m a super fan of Rihanna. I can’t wait to see what she’s going to do.
I just like her and what she does, and her get down, and how she approaches her artistry and the whole nine. It’s fantastic. She has the opportunity to really blow us away. I know we set the bar extremely high,” he added.
