Rihanna is ready to hit the stage again after her six-year hiatus.
It was recently reported that the multi-Grammy-winning artist would perform at the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show.
In a recent AP interview, the Fenty founder said, “If I’m going to leave my baby, I’m going to leave my baby for something special.”
Adding that “It was now or never for me.”
“It was a challenge that I welcomed. It was a stage bigger than anything I’ve ever done,” she said.
She said, “The second that I announced this, I said, ‘Oh, my God, they’re going to think my album is coming. I need to get to work.”
“We just didn’t get around to it yet. We’ve just been living. But I guess there’s a certain freedom that comes with kind of just like getting it out there,” she said.
“It’s always challenging to beat the one before,” she said. “Next year is going to actually be the main challenge because this year was such a huge scale of a show, and I don’t know how we’re going to beat it, but we’re going to have to try.”
