Rihanna set a new Guinness World Record during her Super Bowl performance is certainly noteworthy. Rihanna certainly deserves even more praise and admiration at this point! The world-famous artist who sang “Work” has unofficially set a new Guinness World Record for the largest number of people watching their Super Bowl performance.
Rihanna made her long-awaited and much-anticipated musical comeback in February during the Super Bowl LVII held at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
She captivated fans with a gravity-defying show that was loaded with much of the charm, attitude, and presence we’ve come to expect from RiRi. She sang a medley of her best songs.
According to recent reports, the staging of the performance was able to not only excite spectators, but it was also successful in drawing the largest viewership in the history of the Super Bowl. When it was broadcast live on February 12, the concert attracted more than 121 million people.
Rihanna has achieved a big milestone by surpassing the record that was previously held by Katy Perry in 2015, who received 121 million viewers for her performance at the Super Bowl.
According to a media channel, Rihanna’s most recent achievement is one of the numerous Guinness World Records that she has achieved.
Some of these records include having the most cumulative weeks on a UK singles chart in a calendar year, being the wealthiest female singer, having the most consecutive years of UK No.1 singles, and having the most digital No. 1 songs in the United States.
The vocalist of “B—h Better Have My Money” also witnessed a significant increase in sales following the halftime performance, which is a tendency that occurs every year for various Super Bowl artists.
According to Forbes, Rihanna had a “211% increase in on-demand streams and a 390% increase in digital song sales overall.”
Because it also acted as a pregnancy reveal, the performance was another significant event in pop culture.
Moments after the performance, Rihanna confirmed that she was expecting her second child with A$AP Rocky by revealing her baby bulge while performing onstage in a now-iconic red Loewe jumpsuit.
During the Apple Music Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show on February 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, Rihanna was one of the performers who appeared onstage. It is now officially the performance in the Super Bowl that has garnered the Guinness World Record for most viewers.
