Rihanna Is Headlining the Super Bowl Halftime Show LVII 2023

Rihanna is headlining the Super Bowl Halftime Show LVII in 2023 and this is the track list we think she should play. She has 8 albums filled with numerous No. 1 singles so a lot of good songs won’t make the cut. Set lists usually contain about 8-9 songs so we chose our 9 faves.

9 Songs For Rihanna’s Set List For Super Bowl 2023

Umbrella – Good Girl Gone Bad

Rude Boy – Rated R

What’s My Name – Loud

Rehab – Good Girl Gone Bad

Diamonds – Unapologetic

Pour It Up – Unapologetic

Work – ANTI

Kiss It Better – ANTI

Cockiness – Talk That Talk

Rihanna does have an upcoming album from which she could choose to sing a song or two from and she also might have a special guest who could perform as well. In other words, she may not sing as many songs from her previous hits as we’d like.

6 Years Since Last Rihanna Album

It’s been 6 years since she has put out an album. Rihanna’s last album was “Anti” in 2016. She says she is now working on a new album.

She has been very busy in the 3 years since she declined to perform at the previous Super Bowl halftime show. She is the proud owner of Fenty Beauty and Savage x Fenty which have earned her a net worth of over a billion and No. 21 on Forbes’ annual list of America’s top self-made women. She also has given birth to her first child, a boy, with her boyfriend/fiance/husband A$AP Rocky.

Super Bowl 57 is scheduled for Feb. 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The game and its halftime show are usually a big deal and must-watch tv.

Rihanna Declined Previous Super Bowl Half-Time Appearance

Rihanna had the opportunity to headline the 2019 halftime show, but she confirmed to Vogue later that year that she turned it down to support Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick was a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who attracted both support and controversy for taking a knee during the national anthem before NFL games to protest police brutality against Black people and other forms of racial injustice.

“I couldn’t dare do that,” Rihanna told Vogue in 2019 of her decision. “For what? Who gains from that? Not my people. I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler. There’s things within that organization that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.”
