The 2023 American football league's Superbowl, one of the most anticipated sporting events on the US calendar is finally approaching.

Beyond sport, the Superbowl is a global event known for its revolutionary commercial spots and halftime show as it is for the actual game. This year, the halftime show will be performed by famous artist Rihanna.

The halftime show typically lasts around 15 minutes and is expected to contain a sensational combination of songs from the nine-time Grammy award-winning artist. 

Super Bowl LVII will take place on Monday, 13 February 2023 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, between Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs.

The Eagles, who'll be competing in their fifth Super Bowl, will be playing in their home green jerseys, while the Chiefs, who'll also be playing in their fifth Super Bowl, will be in white.

The two teams will be competing to hold the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy which will be broadcasted live, exclusively across Africa on ESPN (DStv 218, Starsat 248). 

It's too soon to know which songs will be included in the set list of the music, fashion, and beauty mogul's halftime show, but the knowledge that she'll be performing for the first time in years is enough for now. 

While Rihanna hasn't released a new album since 2016, she has stayed plenty busy. In addition to welcoming a baby boy with A$AP Rocky in May, she was nominated for her first Oscar for her song "Lift Me Up," featured on the "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" soundtrack; she launched Fenty Eau de Parfum; apparel company Savage X Fenty had its fourth show on Amazon; and she released a new sport collection.

In an interview with AP, the Fenty Beauty founder revealed that the show is going to be spectacular. “If I’m going to leave my baby, I’m going to leave my baby for something special,” she said.

She reiterated her excitement for the Super Bowl Half-Time Show to Entertainment Tonight about how the event was a “now or never” opportunity.

“Nothing would have gotten me out of the house if it wasn’t a challenge like that,” she said. “You could get really comfortable being at home as a mom, so this is challenging me to do something that I’ve never done before in my career. I have to live up to that challenge.”

When asked about what her plans for the show were, Rihanna said that she wanted to “incorporate a lot of culture” into the show. “I want to incorporate different aspects of entertainment and things that I just enjoy and bring it to the stage,” she said. “I want to celebrate the music that I’ve made.”
