How To Watch Super Bowl Halftime Show 2023 Replay
Rihanna came to play and didn't disappoint
Watch Super Bowl Halftime Show 2023: catch-up
We've Found Love in a hopeless place, and it was with Rihanna at the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show. While the game itself was quite the spectacle (spoiler: the Chiefs won), most eyes were on Rihanna as she returned for her first live performance in quite a while (how about that baby bump?) at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
Having not released a new record since her eighth studio album Anti in 2016, Rihanna returned from her hiatus with the release of the Oscar-nominated track "Lift Me Up" for the Black Panther: Wakana Forever soundtrack. While a reggae project has been confirmed alongside a 2023 stadium tour, the Halftime Show was very much a soft launch into the next era of Rihanna.
There's no doubt she pulled out all the stops in her long-awaited return. From her bold red outfit to those amazing floating stages, the show was absolutely one for the history books. Commenting on performing live after seven years, Rihanna said the Super Bowl gig was certainly "scary", but that she would be "representing for immigrants, representing for my country, Barbados, representing for black women everywhere."
Desperado for more Rihanna? We explain how to watch the full replay of the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show below.
