Singer Rihanna has slyly affirmed that she will be performing at the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show in February 2023.

Roc Nation also officially confirmed the singer's participation through a statement released on Sunday, reports 'Variety'.

The singer shared a picture of an NFL-branded football on her Instagram. The post came amid reports that the singer was "in talks" to headline the next Halftime Show.

The game, which typically draws one of the biggest single TV audiences of the year, is scheduled to be played at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on February 12.

"Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn," said Jay-Z in the official announcement.

"A person born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent artists ever. Self-made in business and entertainment."

Although having Rihanna as a Halftime headliner is a logical conclusion on the Roc Nation front, the singer has not released an album since 2016.

She has commented vaguely about two different albums in the years since, with one being described as a dancehall album. However, details remain scarce.

Regardless, the announcement was enough to rile up fans of the R&B singer, who hope her primetime appearance means a new album is finally on the way.
