Who’s performing at halftime?
Rihanna will take center stage as the headline act for this year’s Super Bowl halftime show.
With sales of more than 250 million records worldwide, Rihanna ranks as one of the best-selling female artists ever, according to the Associated Press. Her most recent album was 2016′s “Anti.” Rihanna last performed publicly at the Grammy Awards in 2018.
The singer said she turned down a similar opportunity for the 2019 Super Bowl that was ultimately headlined by Maroon 5. At the time, many artists voiced support for Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who protested police brutality against Black people and minorities by kneeling during the national anthem in 2016, according to the Associated Press.
Performing alongside Rihanna will be Cleveland native, Norelle. Norelle is an R&B singer who has sung along with some of the biggest names in music including John Legend, Alicia Keyes, and Demi Lovato. Norelle will be singing backup for Rihanna at the Super Bowl halftime show.
