Rihanna Makes a Triumphant Return to the Stage with Super Bowl Halftime Performance
Rihanna, one of the most celebrated musicians in the world, made her return to the stage with a high-profile performance at Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show, which marked her first live appearance since her collaboration with DJ Khaled in the 2018 Grammy Awards.
Her fans have been eagerly waiting for her to release new music, but the singer herself has jokingly hinted that her ninth album, R9, may never come to fruition. Despite this, her performance has drawn attention back to her music career, which has taken a backseat as she’s been busy with a number of other endeavors.
Since the release of her last album, “Anti,” in 2016, Rihanna has achieved great success in a number of different fields. She became a billionaire and rose to prominence as the head of Fenty Maison, the first Black-led luxury fashion house under LVMH. She also launched her cosmetics line, Fenty Beauty, and her lingerie brand, Savage x Fenty, which has received accolades for its diverse and body-positive fashion shows. In 2020, she welcomed her first child with rapper A$AP Rocky.
Rihanna’s long-awaited performance at the Super Bowl halftime show has generated widespread excitement among fans and has been a topic of discussion among many. With 63 charted songs and 14 No. 1 songs, she has a large body of work that could be showcased in a dynamic performance.
Her decision to perform at the Super Bowl was met with some controversy, as she had previously declined the invitation to show solidarity with Colin Kaepernick and the Black Lives Matter movement. However, in a recent interview, Rihanna attributed her change of heart to her role as a mother and the importance of representation for Black people and her home country of Barbados. She said that she wanted to show her son the importance of representation and to challenge herself to get back on stage.
While details about her performance have been kept under wraps, a trailer produced by Apple Music has generated buzz, and fans are eagerly anticipating what she has in store for them. Regardless of whether new music is on the horizon, Rihanna’s Super Bowl performance is sure to be a highlight of the year.
