Are You Ready For Rihanna’s First Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show?
These milestones occurring as the artist recently welcomed a baby boy into the world, received her first Academy Award nomination and prepares for her big Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show in a couple of weeks. Many are hoping for new music during the show, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
Setlist Has Been A Secret, New Music?
Rihanna has been doing a great job keeping the setlist under wraps. This is her first ever performance on America’s so-called biggest stage after turning the opportunity down a few years back. Fenty did this to show solidarity with then-NFL quarterback Colin Kapernick, who kneeled during the national anthem in a peaceful protest to police violence against Black people in America. Legends such as Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, The Rolling Stones and so many more have performed for the halftime show.

Savage X Fenty Game Day Collection
The Grammy-winning icon wouldn’t be a smart business woman if she didn’t find a way to fit Savage X Fenty into her huge moment. She shared a new teaser for her new game day collection. Will we see some of the new collection on dancers or even Rih Rih while she performs? We will see on the night of February 12.
