Riri just can't be beat.

Earlier this year, Rihanna had the world on their feet with her Super Bowl halftime show. After a long wait and much anticipation for her return to the music scene after seven years, her performance did not disappoint fans. There were no special guests, as many thought, but it turns out Riri didn't need anyone else. According to USA Today, the halftime show pulled in 115 million viewers. A report from Neilson confirms this. That makes Rihanna's halftime performance the most watched in all of history. It's an incredibly impressive feat considering the legends that have come before. Then again, she is Rihanna. She is a living legend in her own right.

Riri's performance was remarkable, and she exuded palpable confidence as she sang her top hits. The show began with a brief video before revealing Rihanna suspended on a platform. The tracks on the setlist seamlessly blended into each other. She performed classics like "We Found Love," "S&M," "Rude Boy," and "Work." Her performance concluded with a live band and two of her most popular songs, "Umbrella" and "Diamonds," during which some fans speculated that she announced her pregnancy. This was later confirmed to be true.

Since her Super Bowl performance, Rihanna has become a daily staple in the headlines again. Yesterday, she and A$AP Rocky attended the Met Gala together. Of course, Rihanna has shown up to the event in some of the most iconic looks ever created. As such, there was much anticipation for her arrival. The singer did not disappoint. Rihanna stunned in a beautiful white dress with white flowers all over. She used the flowers as a hood to cover her head and then draped it down for a classic, elegant look. Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky wore a traditional black suit with a white shirt, bedazzled jeans, and a red flannel skirt over his pants as a tribute to Karl Lagerfeld. He also showcased several Gucci belts.

Even after seven years without releasing an album, Rihanna continues to be one of the most influential artists in the industry. Her Super Bowl performance and her extremely hyped appearances at events like the Met Gala only cement her status as an icon. While fans have had to wait quite some time for new music, it looks like the wait may be coming to an end very soon. Rihanna has already said that wants to drop her new album this year. Whether or not she will remains to be seen. What do you think of Rihanna's record-breaking Super Bowl performance? Are you looking forward to new music? Let us know in the comments!
