We seriously couldn't be more ready to see this performance.
In the illusive clip, the 9-time Grammy Award winner emerged from a dark scene, strutting a runway as her shadow silhouette popped in and out of the spotlight.
The "Wild Thoughts" singer never fails to make a fashion statement, appearing in a black ensemble with gaudy silver chains and hoop earrings styled with pointed-toe pumps. She tossed a shaggy neon-colored overcoat across her shoulders for the glamorous look.
For makeup, the hitmaker donned dramatic blue eyeshadow and bright pink lipstick—likely from her own Fenty Beauty line—and rocked a unique gravity-defying braided hairstyle, as only she could.
To end the clip, the fashionista brought her finger to her mouth—mimicking the emoji symbol she used in the caption of the social media post—to reveal her "Shhhh" index finger tattoo as she turned away from the camera to walk off.
It was announced Rihanna would be the headliner for the big game's highly-anticipated musical presentation on Sept. 25, 2022, by the NFL.
The initial reveal drew immense excitement, with fans wondering if this could mean the "Rude Boy" artist would finally debut new tracks—after her last studio album was released 7 years ago in 2016—and with the release of the recent teaser video, the anticipation only heightened.

The elation was obviously bubbling, with model Didi Stone saying: "I just woke up and she gives me heart attacks man."
Lindsay Lohan simply dropped a heart-eyed emoji.
Before October, the Bajan superstar had been focusing her efforts on dominating the fashion and beauty industries, but made a comeback with her first solo song, "Lift Me Up," from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack.
Just hours before the post, she also hit the 'gram with a steamy promo video flaunting her Valentine's Day lingerie release with her intimates/loungewear brand Savage X Fenty.
We can't wait to see what Rih Rih has up her sleeve for this performance, but whatever it is, we're sure it'll be a crowd pleaser!
