It’s been years since we last saw Rihanna perform publicly. That’s why her fans were shocked and thrilled at the same time after she broke the news that she’ll perform at next year’s Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show. With numerous chart-topping hits and millions of records sold worldwide, there are so many performance-worthy songs we can’t wait to see her slay! Here are some suggestions.
“Work” (feat. Drake)
No, seriously. Imagine the entire stadium chanting the lines “Work, work, work,” non-stop! That would be epic.
“Love on the Brain”
Even though we love Rihanna’s showstopping performances and outfits, we wouldn’t mind watching her sing a ballad like “Love on the Brain.” Just her rich, sultry voice and her presence under gleaming lights are more than enough to wow us.
“Don’t Stop the Music”
We first danced to this club banger in 2007, and we’d still groove to every beat of “Don’t Stop the Music” if Rihanna decides to perform it at the half-time show.
“Only Girl (in the World)”
How can we forget her Loud album era? Rihanna’s red hair and dance-pop anthems like “Only Girl (in the World)” were nothing short of iconic. The song is an absolute gem!
“We Found Love” (with Calvin Harris)
Can you believe this song was released a decade ago? We’re so ready to sing this song with her for another decade and more!
“Umbrella” (feat. JAY-Z)
Whether you’re a Rihanna fan or not, no one can deny that “Umbrella” is a modern classic!
“This is What You Came For” (with Calvin Harris)
With over 2B views on YouTube, “This is What You Came For” is one of the songs that instantly pop into our heads when we think of Rihanna. This chilled-out club track is the type of song you wouldn’t mind playing on loop.
“Love the Way You Lie” (with Eminem)
Another timeless hit from Rihanna’s discography. Many millennials and Gen Zs can still remember rapping and singing every word of “Love the Way You Lie” when it was released. No doubt many of us will walk down memory lane once Rihanna performs it on stage (and it would be unreal if Eminem would be there, too!)
