Rihanna will perform at next year’s Super Bowl LVII halftime show. The performance is sponsored by Apple Music and is scheduled to go down at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on February 12.

The NFL announced the news on Sunday afternoon by sharing an image of the singer’s distinctly-tattooed hand holding a football with the caption, “Let’s GO.” The football league also changed its Twitter and Instagram bios to pay homage to Rihanna, reading, “national fenty league.”

Last season saw an especially rap-heavy roster of performers. Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent and Anderson .Paak took the field at Inglewood, California’s SoFi Stadium with a high-energy montage of songs.

“We are thrilled to welcome Rihanna to the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show stage,” NFL head of music Seth Dudowsky said in a statement. “Rihanna is a once in a generation artist who has been a cultural force throughout her career. We look forward to collaborating with Rihanna, Roc Nation and Apple Music to bring fans another historic Halftime Show performance.”

Not only will it be Rihanna’s first time performing at the Super Bowl, but it’ll also be her first public performance in five years, following her rendition of “Wild Thoughts” with DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller at the 2018 GRAMMYs.

While Rihanna has taken a step back from music over the past few years, the singer confirmed to Vogue earlier this year that she was working on a reggae album, a long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s ANTI.
