New mom and pop icon Rihanna is set to be the main attraction when she takes on the Halftime Show for Super Bowl LVII.
The news was announced by the pop singer, her label, the NFL, and new halftime show sponsor Apple Music on Sunday.
Rihanna posted a photo of what appears to be her tattooed arm holding up an NFL football, with the caption “Let’s GO.”
Jay-Z, who’s Roc Nation is an executive producer of the show, said in a statement that “Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn, born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent artists ever. Self-made in business and entertainment.”
Back in 2019, Rihanna confirmed to Vogue that she turned down the chance to perform the Super Bowl halftime show because of how Colin Kaepernick had been treated.
The 57th Super Bowl will take place on February 12, 2023, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. It will be the first with Apple Music as a partner on the Halftime Show, according to the NFL’s announcement.
