Last updated

Apple Music is the official sponsor of the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show headlining Rihanna, and Nadeska Alexis has interviewed the artist ahead of the game.

Super Bowl LVII is set for Sunday, February 12 at 6:30 pm ET, and Apple Music is sponsoring the halftime show for the first time, which stars Rihanna. The Kansas City Chiefs play against the Philadelphia Eagles this year, at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

As part of the events leading up to the game, Apple Music has released an interview with Rihanna at the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show Press Conference. Viewers can tune in live or watch on demand on Apple Music, on Apple Music's TikTok, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter, or on the NFL Network.

Troy Kotsur, who played father Frank Rossi in "CODA" on Apple TV+ will sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl along with eight-time Grammy winner Chris Stapleton.

Apple Music has also shared music from Rihanna's Road to Halftime show in Spatial Audio. Rihanna's Road to Halftime on Apple Music will include an official collection of 32 playlists featuring the top songs each NFL team listens to in the locker room, the weight room, and on game day.

Programming on Apple Music Radio will also include "Halftime Hype Radio," a 10-part series reflecting on some of the most notable Super Bowl Halftime performances of all time; "Rihanna Revisited Radio," an eight-episode roundtable exploring the cultural impact of the elusive singer's catalog; and "Live from Super Bowl LVII," featuring daily live broadcasts.

Radio hosts will include Zane Lowe, Ebro Darden, and Nadeska Alexis, and the "Live from Super Bowl LVII" segment will feature various surprise guests. It wraps up on Monday, February 13, with "Halftime Recap Radio" to celebrate the debut of Apple Music's Super Bowl Halftime Show.

On all compatible iPhone and iPad devices as well as the new Apple TV 4K, the new Apple Music Sing function enables users to sing along with songs by Rihanna and other artists, perform duets, sing backing, and more.
