Following her diversification to grow the Fenty business, fans of Rihanna have been anticipating new songs since her hiatus.

Back in 2018, Rihanna had the opportunity to perform at the Superbowl but turned it down to support former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick who protested racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem.

Speaking to Abby Aguirre of Vogue Rihanna explained in 2019 why she turned down the Superbowl halftime show in 2018.

She said, “I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler.

“There are things within that organization that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.”
