The NFL announced Sunday pop star Rihanna will perform during halftime of the upcoming Super Bowl. The singer will headline the 2023 Super Bowl along with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and Apple Music.
“Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn,” said Jay-Z, whose Roc Nation is an executive producer of the show, in a statement. “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 Super Bowl will be Sunday February 12th in Glendale Arizona at State Farm Stadium. Rihanna was suppose to perform at halftime of the Super Bowl in 2019, but declined to perform to show solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
