At the Super Bowl, Rihanna plans to honor her Caribbean heritage.
Rihanna, who is 34 years old and was born and raised in Barbados, is set to perform at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show. She is committed to paying tribute to her roots.
In an interview with Apple Music, the award-winning singer said, “It’s important to me to represent immigrants, my country Barbados, and black women everywhere. It’s crucial for people to see the possibilities. I’m grateful to be here and to be performing this year.”
Rihanna has been making changes to her setlist in the past few weeks and is committed to providing a memorable show.
She stated, “Each small change matters, whether it’s muting a guitar or adding something, swapping out a song, or removing one entirely.
“Whenever I make an adjustment, a new version must be created.”
Who encouraged Rihanna to perform at Super Bowl?
Rihanna also shared that her son encouraged her to perform at the Super Bowl. Following the birth of her son in May, the singer acknowledged that motherhood has altered her perspective on life.
She stated, “I felt like it was a do-or-die situation. After becoming a mom, something strange happens where you unlock other areas of your superpower, and you feel as though you can tackle anything.
“I was up for the challenge, and I wanted to do something that would push me to return to the stage.”
Rihanna also admitted that she enjoys the trials of being a mother.
She stated, “It’s insane. It’s fantastic. It’s uncontrolled. It’s strange. All of these things occur simultaneously. It’s the most incredible sensation. It’s the greatest amount of love I’ve ever experienced.
“I can’t put it into words. It’s novel. It’s intriguing. Every step, every facial expression, every new development. I adore it.”
When Does The Super Bowl Begin?
The Super Bowl will start at 6:30 p.m. EST on Fox. This indicates that viewers should be prepared to watch Rihanna perform around 8 p.m. or later (taking into account the other main attraction of the Super Bowl: commercials).
How To View The Halftime Show?
Although the Eagles-Kansas City game is being broadcast live on Fox, cord-cutters have several options for tuning in. Live streaming services like DirectTV, Hulu, and SlingTV are available.
What to Anticipate from Rihanna Performance at Super Bowl?
The halftime show may serve as a launchpad for her highly anticipated ninth studio album, referred to by fans as “R9,” as well as a possible return to touring. Following Coldplay’s halftime show in which Beyoncé performed, she went on to announce her Formation Tour, indicating that anything is possible.
Additionally, Rihanna has been teasing the release of her ninth album in various ways since 2018. She confirmed that it would be a reggae album in 2018, reggae-inspired and -infused in 2019, that she was collaborating with The Neptunes in 2020, that she just wanted to have fun with her music later in 2020, and that she was taking her music and other brands to a “new level” in 2021 at the end of 2020. She also stated in 2021 that her new music would be released “soon soon soon” and that it would be her “best album to this day” in 2022.
