The NFL has confirmed that Rihanna will be headlining the Super Bowl LVII halftime show at State Farm Stadium outside of Phoenix, Arizona on Feb. 12.

Prior to the NFL’s confirmation, Taylor Swift was rumored to be performing.

The NFL posted a photo of Rihanna holding up a football confirming the news, following Rihanna’s post.

Super Bowl LVII will have a new sponsor,  Apple Music. This comes after Pepsi was the official halftime show sponsor for a decade.

In addition, Jay-Z’s Roc Nation is returning for the third year to help produce the halftime spectacular.

“Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn. A person born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent artists ever. Self-made in business and entertainment,” said Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, in a release from the NFL.


Rihanna is Grammy award winning artist, and just in July she was named the youngest self-made billionaire by Forbes when she hit $1.4 billion net worth marker, earned by her music, beauty and fashion ventures.
