Rihanna has made her return to music—but that doesn’t mean she’s releasing a new album anytime soon.

In an interview with The Associated Press, the singer said she still needs to “get to work” on her ninth album, and for now, she is focusing on preparing for her 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show performance.

“Super Bowl is one thing. New music is another thing. Do you hear that, fans?” she said.

She also told Entertainment Tonight that the show will “celebrate the music that I’ve made.” She added that she “can’t believe” she said yes to the commitment, calling the halftime show “an entertainer’s dream.”

Of how she’s feeling ahead of the February 2023 performance, she told Reuters, “It’s a challenge that I was willing to accept, and I’m really looking forward to it. It’s going to be a lot of hard work, the biggest thing I’ve ever done in my entire career.”

Rihanna’s halftime performance will mark her return to the stage following a six-year musical hiatus—she released her last album, Anti, in 2016.

Just last month, the pop star dropped her first single since the break, “Lift Me Up,” from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack. She also released a breathtaking music video to go with the track, featuring her walking along the beach at sunset in a silky ivory corset gown. The song is meant to be a musical tribute to the late actor Chadwick Boseman, who portrayed the superhero in the original Black Panther blockbuster film.
