Rihanna, who is set to perform the Super Bowl Halftime Show on February 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, recently shared a trailer for the show.
The short clip shows Rihanna step into the spotlight with sound bites of fans playing in the background.
“We’ve waited for you,” one fan could be heard saying in the video, with another voice saying that it has been over a whopping 2,000 days since she last performed live.
“RiRi, where have you been?!” another fan says later before she makes a shushing gesture.
The short clip ends with a snippet of “Needed Me,” a song off her eighth studio album, Anti.
Rihanna previously called it “an entertainer’s dream” to play the show. “The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world, it’s an entertainer’s dream to be on a stage like that,” she said. “But it’s nerve-racking. You want to get it right. You know, everybody’s watching. And they’re rooting for you. And I want to get it right.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Rihanna to the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show stage,” Seth Dudowsky, NFL Head of Music, added in his own statement. “Rihanna is a once-in-a-generation artist who has been a cultural force throughout her career. We look forward to collaborating with Rihanna, Roc Nation and Apple Music to bring fans another historic Halftime Show performance.”
