Rihanna stated during Apple Music press conference that she has already changed her Super Bowl Halftime Show setlist 39 times. The performance will last 13 minutes, yet she has eight albums and a 17-year career.
“Some songs we have to lose because of that, and that’s going to be ok. We did a pretty good job at narrowing it down. There’s probably been about 39 versions of the setlist right now. We’re on our 39th. Every little change counts.”
She also shared that, “The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. As scary as it was, because I haven’t been on stage in seven years, there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all. It’s important for me to do this year. It’s important for my son to see that.”
A close source also revealed, “Rihanna has been preparing for her Super Bowl LVII halftime show for months and wants it to be the most iconic performance. She really kicked things into gear and got right to work after she received the call.”
Rihanna will take on the Super Bowl stage at 6:30 pm at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
