ihanna will perform at the next Super Bowl halftime show, the NFL has announced.

The multi-award winning singer, 34, shared a photo of her hand holding an American football on Instagram and Twitter on Sunday evening.

Shortly after, it was reposted by his label, Roc Nation, the NFL and Apple Music – a new partner on the show – who confirmed the news in a tweet.

Apple Music said: “It’s on. Rihanna will take the stage for the first-ever Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show on 2.12.23.

In a statement, the NFL confirmed the popstar and businesswoman will perform at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona in February.

The show was previously dubbed the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show, but the music company confirmed on Friday that it was taking over the role of sponsor.

Jay-Z, Founder of Roc Nation, said, “Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman from humble beginnings who exceeded expectations at every turn. A person born on the small island of Barbados who has become one of the most prominent artists of all time. Self-taught in business and entertainment.

Seth Dudowsky, NFL Music Director, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Rihanna to the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show stage.

“Rihanna is a one-of-a-kind performer who has been a cultural force throughout her career. We look forward to working with Rihanna, Roc Nation and Apple Music to bring fans another historic Halftime Show performance.

Stars flooded Rihanna’s comments section on her Instagram page shortly after the announcement, where they celebrated the news.

Singer Lizzo replied, “Screaming” while rapper Nadia Rose wrote, “LET’S GOOOOOO RIRI!!!!!!!” followed by an American football and a goat emoji.

The show has already been featured by global superstars including 50 Cent, The Weeknd, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez.

Earlier today, US outlet TMZ reported that she was in talks to headline the prestigious halftime slot, which is the Barbadian singer’s first major live performance in many years.

Fans urged her to release new music after her Grammy-nominated album Anti, released in 2016.

In the years since, the star has focused on her philanthropic endeavors, acting roles and businesses, which include makeup and skincare brand Fenty Beauty as well as her lingerie line, Savage. XFenty.

In 2019, Rihanna declined to perform at the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show in solidarity with former American footballer Colin Kaepernick.

He left the league two years earlier after he began kneeling for the pre-game national anthem to protest racial injustice in the United States.

The gesture then spread around the world, with footballers often kneeling before games.

Earlier this year, Rihanna gave birth to a child with her boyfriend, rapper Asap Rocky.
