Words can’t even properly describe how excited we are for Rihanna’s concert!

Just kidding, we’re anxious to see her Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show performance as she has assured fans that the show is going to be dynamic in an interview with AP. “If I’m going to leave my baby, I’m going to leave my baby for something special,” she declared.
Noting that this would be a performance bigger than anything else she has done, she understands what’s expected of her and will be sure to exceed those expectations. Her decades-long career has been nothing short of impressive as she has released eight studio albums and successfully transitioned into becoming a beauty and fashion guru.
But with Rihanna having not performed live in almost four years, we’re dying to know what songs she plans to perform during her show, but we do have a couple of her hits on our wish list.
While it was so hard to put a limit on what all we want to hear RiRi perform, we narrowed it down to 10 songs that we need to hear Ms. Fenty perform.
This 2011 bop would quite literally be the perfect opening to her set, giving all the right energy. If she opens with this song, it’s giving “let me remind you who Rihanna is!”
If It’s Lovin’ That You Want
While we’re not too sure where this song should go in her set, it’s still a must play! Coming out almost 18 years ago when she was still a teen, this is the perfect ode to where it all began and her Carribean roots.
Run This Town
There have been whispers that Jay-Z is helping with the production of her performance so it only seems right for her to bring him out to perform their 2009, GRAMMY award-winning hit together.
Another oldie but goodie, this song peaked at number one for five weeks in a row on Billboard’s Hot 100, it’s safe to say this song had the girls in a chokehold when it came out so it needs to be a part of the set.
Kiss It Better
This bop was released back in 2016 but gained recent notoriety by becoming a trending sound on TikTok after it was sampled on Fat Joe’s single, “Sunshine.” The slow, melodic instrumental in “Kiss It Better” is a vibe that we can’t let her skip.
We have absolutely got to have some red-hair era Rihanna in the mix and while the lyrics are a little raunchy, that's what makes it FUN. This is just a great song to get the crowd pumped. So for that, this is a must hear!
This song is currently Rihanna’s longest charting hit as it placed top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for 16 weeks, so this should be pretty self-explanatory as to why ‘Needed Me” NEEDS to be included.
This song just makes you want to get up out of your seat and sway side to side and obviously we’re not the only ones that felt this way because this single saw worldwide success, topping charts in Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
Topping charts in over twenty countries, it's safe to say that the girls love "Diamonds" so therefore "Diamonds" should definitely get some shine in the halftime show.
Bitch Better Have My Money
This Rihanna spin on trap music would make for an amazing closing of an epic halftime show reminding the world just how bad of a B**** she has been and will always be.
