AceShowbiz - Having a long list of hits that includes "Umbrella", "Work" and "Love the Way You Lie", Rihanna naturally becomes most people's top choice when it comes to who should headline the upcoming halftime show. The anticipation only grew stronger when it was announced that Jay-Z would be taking part in the production, considering Rih is one of Roc Nation's artists. Moreover, she is about to release her new album soon.
One fan pointed this out on Twitter, "Can y'all imagine Rihanna releasing her new album on 1/31/20 and then performing at the Super Bowl 2 days after? A CONCEPT AND MARKETING QUEEN." Someone else echoed, "So, I guess Rihanna is the next Superbowl performer because Jay will strong arm that deal since she will drop her album soon." Jay himself has previously addressed this speculation, though he played coy by saying, "You have to ask her. That's a tough question."
