The Super Bowl halftime show is always full of surprises, and Rihanna delivered one of the biggest shockers in recent memory this year. She announced her pregnancy right after hitting the stage and went on to deliver a spectacular solo performance.
Rihanna opened the show with “B—h Better Have My Money”, and her grand entrance was unforgettable for more reasons than one. Her red Loewe jumpsuit was custom-made to show off her baby bump, confirming she’s expecting her second child with A$AP Rocky.
Rihanna’s 13-minute performance included a total of 12 songs, ranging from “We Found Love” and “Rude Boy” to “Umbrella” and “Diamonds”, which closed the show. The singer previously discussed the show with Apple Music and said that choosing the setlist was the show’s biggest challenge.
“You only have 13 minutes, that’s the challenge, so you’re trying to cram 17 years of work into 13 minutes. It’s difficult – some songs we’ve had to lose because of that and that’s going to be OK. But I think we did a pretty good job at narrowing it down,” she explained.
Rihanna’s halftime show was a part of Super Bowl LVII, which took place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on February 12, and saw the Kansas City Chiefs win their second title in four years.
