After dropping her Grammy nominated album “Anti,” Rihanna has been on a seven-year
hiatus. She has left fans so desperate that they’re willing to watch the singer do a
makeup routine on stage.

On Sept. 25, the Grammy award winning entrepreneur posted a picture of her henna
tatted hand holding a NFL logo printed football . Fans believe the singer is announcing
that she will be performing at the Super Bowl LVII halftime show on Feb.12, 2023 in

Which has led excited fans to ask: “What will she perform?” The questions spread
quickly on social media. The news is still fresh but, according to TMZ there has been
speculations of artist such as Calvin Harris, Ye, Pharrel, Drake, and Jay- Z performing
with Rihanna at the Super Bowl.

Some of Rihanna’s fans are students in Tallahassee and many of them look forward in
seeing her perform classics such as “Only Girl [In the World],” “Work,” “Umbrella,” “Man
Down” and “Pon De Replay.” Makayla Dixon, a second-year nursing student at FAMU,
hopes the singer performs with some new artists.

“Hear me out, I feel that Lizzo and Rihanna would be a show stopper! I would love to
see them perform together,” she said.

Jared Melhado, a transfer student attending FAMU ,speculates an announcement of a
new album during the performance.
“Truthfully, I am hoping she releases another album by the end of fall or the end of the
year so she can perform some of it in February.”

Plenty of Rihanna fans in Tallahassee want to expect a performance ending with
reassurance of the start of a new era of music from Rihanna, but students say that due
to Rihanna’s deceiving past, she might use her performance time to acknowledge a
very anti climatic update in the singer’s life.

“She might just promote her makeup and lingerie,” said second year criminal justice
student Jordyn Brew.

The singer is known to build unnecessary tension with her fans. For example, during
her pregnancy everyone wanted to know the gender of Rihanna’s baby. After TMZ
posted a very pregnant Rihanna shopping for baby clothes in the girls’ section, her fans
assumed she will be expecting a girl. The baby is a boy. Its so repetitive that the social
media director for Fenty Beauty posted an edited picture of Rihannas Super Bowl
announcement and replaced the football with a Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer .

There is still some time for more announcements regarding the Super Bowl LVII
appearance. Regardless, fans are excited to see Rihanna perform for the first time
since 2016.
