With less than a week until Rihanna’s highly anticipated Super Bowl stage return, no musical guests have been announced.
Rihanna’s Super Bowl performance, however, will be “epic,” according to musical director Adam Blackstone, who will direct the once-in-a-lifetime performance.
Rihanna stunned everyone last year when she announced she would headline the 2023 NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Rihanna has woken up her sleeping fans with just her hand holding a football, her Instagram post, and a period in her caption. The Instagram post has now received over 7 million likes and 170,000 comments.
Fans have been looking for crumbs and easter eggs on who will be Rihanna’s Super Bowl guests in her upcoming performance since her big announcement.
A TMZ source revealed in September 2022 that more than 50 artists were being considered to be Rihanna’s Super Bowl guest performers. Another source stated that she will almost certainly be working with her previous collaborators.
Drake, Kanye West, Pharell Williams, Neyo, and even Paul McCartney’s names were mentioned because they have previously worked with the “California King Bed” hitmaker.
The stan world, on the other hand, is calling for Nicki Minaj to be Rihanna’s Super Bowl guest performer. The two previously collaborated on “Fly” and have rekindled their friendship in the years since Nicki gave birth to Papa Bear and Rihanna became a mother.
Adam Blackstone, who will direct the upcoming show, recently spoke with Good Morning America to tease more about the upcoming music event.
“The story that she wants to tell is, ‘Let’s be epic.’ Let’s let this be a moment in time that people will have never seen or heard before. We’re forcing the concert in the middle of the biggest sporting event in the world.”
When asked who Rihanna’s Super Bowl guests would be, Blackstone knew he couldn’t say anything. He teased:
“I think you’ll be in for a surprise.”
With less than two weeks until the show, no major details about Rihanna’s Super Bowl performance have been released.
Apple Music, which will replace Pepsi as the primary sponsor of the Super Bowl Halftime Show, has released a Rihanna Essentials playlist in anticipation of the upcoming show.
Rihanna’s Super Bowl Halftime Show will take place on February 12, 2023, at Glendale’s State Farm Stadium.
