Rihanna Teases Super Bowl Halftime Show: Look + Listen

“It’s been six years since the nine-time Grammy winner dropped her last album,” says one of the many voice overs in the just released teaser for Rihanna‘s upcoming headline spot at the Super Bowl halftime show.

In the 30-second video clip the multi-award winning musician/fashionista comes out of the darkness into the spotlight while voices from fans and reporters are heard wondering when she’s going to return with her long-awaited ninth LP.

Wearing a furry lime green coat and black dress combination, RiRi puts her finger to her lips and motions for the voices to “shush” before a snippet of her 2016 track “Needed Me” begins to air.

In September, the billionaire songstress and Fenty inventor was announced as the halftime headliner when she posted a photo on Instagram of her arm holding a Wilson Duke football.

Rihanna will be the first performer since the halftime show was been rebranded under Apple Music, and in a statement about the event Roc Nation founder Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter said:

“Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn. A person born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent artists ever. Self-made in business and entertainment.”

The 2022 halftime show was headlined by Dr. DreSnoop DoggEminemMary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar and included guest appearances by 50 Cent and Anderson .Paak, and prio halftime show performers include BeyoncéJustin TimberlakeLady GagaJennifer LopezMadonna, and The Weeknd.
