Grammy-winning singer Rihanna announced on Sunday that she will headline the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show.

Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, confirmed the news in an Instagram post featuring her tattooed hand holding a football with the NFL logo. The photo was the 34-year-old's first post since May, when she gave birth to her first child.

Rihanna's post followed a TMZ report, which had claimed she was in talks with the NFL about performing at the title game. Shortly after the report, Rihanna shared the Instagram post and the NFL confirmed that she would be the headliner.

"We are thrilled to welcome Rihanna to the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show stage," NFL Head of Music Seth Dudowsky said in a 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."

The upcoming Super Bowl takes place on Feb. 12, 2023, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The last Super Bowl had an average of over 112 million total viewers on NBC and its streaming platforms. Super Bowl LVII will be broadcasted by Fox.

Rihanna's performance at the halftime show will mark the first year of a partnership between the NFL, Apple Music, and Roc Nation.

"Rihanna is an incredible recording artist who is a favorite for many millions of Apple Music customers around the world," Oliver Schusser, vice president of Apple Music and Beats, said in a press release.

"We're excited to partner with Rihanna, Roc Nation, and the NFL to bring music and sports fans a momentous show — what an incredible artist for the inaugural Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show."

The NFL had previously sought Rihanna to perform at the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show but she rejected the offer due to her opposition of the NFL's treatment of Colin Kaepernick, who had drawn attention for kneeling during the national anthem.

In the coming months, fans can follow Apple Music on social media for exclusive details and sneak peeks leading up to the upcoming Super Bowl Halftime Show.
