Rihanna has returned.

In what could easily considered one of the most anticipated Super Bowl Halftime shows in recent memory, Rihanna delivered a moving spectacular of her greatest hits for Super Bowl LVII Sunday evening. The global star performed fan favourites such as “Umbrella”, “Rude Boy”, “Diamonds” and more for the 13-minute long halftime show. The performance was Rihanna’s first performance in over 7 years since the release of her last full length studio album, Anti and since becoming a mother to her firstborn son last year. She opted not to bring out any guests for the mega-televised performance even while former collaborators such as Jay-Z attended the big game.

The singer stepped out on the (floating!) stage in a monochrome red jumpsuit paired with a matching Alaïa puffer coat and chunky sneakers and coordinated her glam with a Fenty Beauty crimson lip. She kept her hair in a high ponytail split into two braids with front tendrils framing her face.

The superstar worked alongside her longtime choreographer Parris Goebel for the halftime performance who has also choreographed her last four Savage x Fenty fashion productions as well.

“She really gives me the freedom to create and express myself as a woman. Usually I go crazy presenting to her ideas and different concepts, and she reacts, and then we keep working through it. It’s effortless, really. She trusts me and we just have fun with it,” Goebel previously told BAZAAR.com of working with the pop star.

Rihanna previously shared during a pre-Super Bowl press conference how she planned on putting her absolute all into the comeback performance and recognising how high the stakes were considering her lengthy pause from music and performing.

“It [felt] like [this moment] could have only been now,” Rihanna told Apple Music earlier this week. “But when you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you could take on the world, you could do anything. And the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. So as scary as that was because I haven’t been on stage in seven years, there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all. And it’s important for me to do this this year. It’s important for representation, it’s important for my son to see that.”
