By Zoe Sottile and Matt Foster, CNN

(CNN) - Pop star Rihanna will perform at the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show, the NFL announced on Sunday. The 57th Super Bowl will take place on February 12, 2023, in Glendale, Arizona.

The announcement comes after both Rihanna and the NFL tweeted a picture of the musician's hand holding a football Sunday afternoon, sparking speculation that she would be the halftime performer.

In the NFL's statement, Jay-Z, whose entertainment agency Roc Nation is one of several executive producers on the halftime show, called Rihanna a "generational talent."

"Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn," Jay-Z said in the statement. "A person born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent artists ever. Self-made in business and entertainment."
