The Super Bowl isn’t only renowned for the game itself, but also its prestigious halftime show, where marquee names across the music industry showcase their talents to the world.
This year, Rihanna will be the headlining performer, which is great because she’s released so many hits throughout her career.

Rihanna has several platinum-selling albums, including “Good Girl Gone Bad," which is her best-seller.
She has also started her own clothing brand and beauty products while also making appearances at notable fashion events.
An interesting note here is that this will be Rihanna’s first live event in over five years, so it’s certain to be a spectacle. There’s a good chance that we’ll see some interesting guests make an appearance.
Rihanna Halftime Show Setlist & Guest Predictions
Let’s make some predictions on the halftime show, taking a look at the setlist along with any surprise guests if you run into any Rihanna Super Bowl props.
This song was released back in 2007, but it’s one of her main hits from her best-selling album, “Good Girl Gone Bad."
It’s uptempo with a catchy phrase to start out the song, making it a potential choice to open up the performance.
This one is a banger that is sure to get the crowd fired up.

What’s great about this one is that Jay-Z is featured in the remix, so there’s an opportunity to bring him out as a guest. The hip-hop legend has never made an appearance at the Super Bowl, so stay tuned.
Here we have a song that is highly likely to be featured in the setlist.
Not only was it a smash hit, but it’s been featured on promos for Rihanna’s performance. It’s hard to see a scenario where she doesn’t perform this one, although it is a slower track.
‘This Is What You Came For’
This adds a bit of electronic flavor into Rihanna’s terrific vocals.
It’s an upbeat song that would fit well in this performance. Rihanna is joined by EDM star Calvin Harris on this track, so perhaps he can make an appearance as a guest here, as well.
This song would also work well in the performance because not only was it a major hit but it also features Drake, who we all know as one of the biggest artists on the planet.
We’ve never seen Drake at the Super Bowl, so it seems like a good fit.
Jay-Z has worked with Rihanna on several occasions, as she was signed to his record label. We could see them perform tracks like “Umbrella" or “Run This Town."
Calvin Harris is more of a longshot to appear as a guest since he doesn’t sing in their song together, but “This Is What You Came For" makes sense as a choice, so we can’t rule it out.
There are so many options for Drake to appear as a guest, including “Work," “Too Good," and “What’s My Name?" Add in the fact that he’s never been at the Super Bowl and we have a natural fit.
A$AP Rocky and Rihanna are a couple and have a child together, so it would be cool to see them together on stage. The only issue is that A$AP Rocky has only appeared on one Rihanna track, “Cockiness (Love It) Remix."
