Dr. Dre is thrilled that Rihanna is playing the Super Bowl 57 halftime show.
Dre, who performed at the last halftime show back in February, reacted to the news during an interview with Ebro Darden on Apple Music 1.
“I actually just got the news that Rihanna’s going to do it, and I’m a super fan of Rihanna,” he said. “I can’t wait to see what she’s going to do.”
He added, “I just like her and what she does, and her get down, and how she approaches her artistry and the whole nine. It’s fantastic. She has the opportunity to really blow us away. I know we set the bar extremely high.”
As for any advice he has for Rihanna going into the performance, Dre imparts, “Put the right people around you, and have fun. That’s basically what it is, making sure you have the right creative people around you. She might want to look into some of the people that we used to do our show.”
Super Bowl LVII marks the first year Apple Music will be sponsoring the halftime show. The big game is scheduled to take place February 12, 2023, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
