Who could be some guest stars in Rihanna’s performance in the Super Bowl halftime show?
As fans get ready for Rihanna’s halftime show at the 2023 Super Bowl, we can’t help but guess some of the guest stars who could join her on stage in Arizona
All the latest news and updates of Rihanna’s performance in the Superbowl LVII live on As.com.
Barbadian star and fearless artist Rihanna is headlining the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show after five years of absence on stage.
Following in the footsteps of the likes of Lady Gaga, J. Lo, Shakira, and Madonna, the Grammy-winning singer is taking on Arizona’s State Farm Stadium for the 13-minute performance this Sunday with fans buzzing at the anticipated “Rhiturn.”
And while the last two halftime shows involved Jennifer Lopez and Shakira splitting duties in 2020, and a Dr. Dre- led group of hip-hop stars: Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Blige, and Eminem with guests 50 Cent and Anderson Paak taking on the 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show, there hasn’t been a one-man performance at the halftime show for years.
Who will Rihanna bring to the Super Bowl halftime show?
As seen more often than not at the Super Bowl, sharing the halftime show stage is the real game.
Coldplay brought Beyoncé and Bruno Mars to the 2016 Super Bowl halftime show for a star-studded performance, Katy Perry brought Missy Elliott out as a surprise guest the year before, and Janet Jackson brought Justin Timberlake back in 2004 in what was one of the most infamous halftime show performances in history.
This leads us to firmly believe Rihanna will not only bring one or two stars to join her on her stage but rather an army of legends to take Glendale by storm. There are already a few rumored guests that include Jay-Z whose Roc Nation is executive producing the show, and Drake, who has two hits with Rihanna guaranteed to get the party going. Past collaborators like Calvin Harris, Eminem, SZA, and DJ Khaled, as well as Riri’s partner A$AP Rocky, are also speculated to potentially join her on stage.
What we know for sure is that Rihanna has been focused on one big thing for this show: “representation.”
The artist from the island said it was crucial for her to include her roots in the performance, which played a big part in her planning process.
“That’s a big part of why this is important for me to do this show: representation,” she said at the Apple Music official interview. “Representing for immigrants. Representing for Black women everywhere.
“That’s key for people to see the possibilities,” she added. “I’m really excited to have Barbados on the Super Bowl stage.”

With that said, we can’t help but think of another island girl who would surely rock the ‘representation’ stage with Rihanna: Nicki Minaj. The rapper/singer from Trinidad and Tobago is a great friend of the Umbrella artist, and their song together Fly, was a pretty good hit back in 2010.
