Rihanna tells us not to talk about new music in Super Bowl halftime show trailer

The wait is almost over. On January 13, Rihanna released an Apple Music trailer for her Super Bowl 57 halftime show. The Feb. 12 halftime show at Arizona's State Farm Stadium will mark her first performance in five years, and Riri made it clear the wait was worth it.

In the 30-second trailer, Rihanna walks down a white runway as fans and reporters chirp and beg for a new album. "Man, Rihanna, we've been waiting for you," one voice says, while another notes, "It's been six years since the nine-time Grammy winner put out an album." Then, the spotlight shines on Rihanna On her body, she motioned for us all to shush as her 2016 hit "Needed Me" played.

In addition to the trailer, to prepare fans for the big show, Riri also released a Super Bowl-themed collection for its Savage x Fenty brand. The capsule collection includes multi-color football jerseys, hoodies and sweatpants emblazoned with "Property of Fenty" and even an oversized T-shirt that reads "RIHANNA CONCERT BY A FOOTBALL GAME WEIRD BUT WHATEVER."

Rihanna has revealed she will headline the Super Bowl halftime show in September, announcing the news with a striking photo of her tattooed arm holding a football. Considering fans have been waiting for her ninth studio album since she released "Anti" in 2016, many thought her Super Bowl performance also meant her new album was on the way. However, Riri denied the speculation, telling The Associated Press in November that the Super Bowl and the new music were two separate events. "Fans, did you hear that?" she asked. "Because I knew the minute I announced it I was like, 'Oh my God, they're going to think my album is coming out and I need to start working.'"

Rihanna did release some new music unrelated to the album in November, recording two songs for Black Panther: "Wakanda Forever ," "Lift Me Up" and "Born Again." The former was written as a tribute to late Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Original Song, losing out to RRR 's "Naatu Naatu", and was shortlisted for the Oscars Shortlist for the same category. . A nomination would allow Rihanna to perform at the Super Bowl and Oscars in the same year, joining Phil Collins and Lady Gaga as the only artists to achieve that feat. Rihanna's reign won't let up.
