Rihanna may be joined by some special guests when she takes the stage at the Super Bowl next year.
The artist and her staff are hard at work organizing the concert only days after making a major announcement. Rihanna is still deciding whether or not she wants guests, according to a TMZ report.
Nearly 50 candidates have been floated, including JAY-Z, Drake, Kanye West, Eminem, Paul McCartney, Calvin Harris, Kendrick Lamar, and others who have worked with them.
She might still go solo, but if past years are any indicator, she’ll probably have at least one guest. Rihanna will ultimately make the last decision regarding any invited guests.
In recent days, the new mother has been spending a lot of time in the studio. She and A$AP Rocky were photographed at a recording studio in New York City on Monday night, fueling rumors that they are collaborating on music.
Fans have begun contributing their ideal set lists for Rihanna even though the Super Bowl is still five months away. Dr. Dre, who performed at the halftime show this year, expressed his delight at watching Rihanna sing.
“I love Rihanna so much. I’m eager to see what she’ll do, he remarked to Apple Music. “I just like her, what she does, how she moves, how she approaches art, the full nine. It’s wonderful. She has the chance to really impress us.
After declining a request to play at the 2019 Super Bowl in support of Colin Kaepernick, who in 2016 protested police brutality by taking a knee during the national anthem, Rihanna said on Sunday that she will be the show’s headlining act.
On February 12, Super Bowl LVII will be held at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
