A$AP Rocky can’t hide his excitement for Rihanna’s upcoming appearance on the Super Bowl Halftime Show

A$AP Rocky’s anticipation of his partner Rihanna’s upcoming performance was palpable during a new interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe.

The 34-year-old rapper sounded “excited” that the 34-year-old pop icon will be making music again with her highly anticipated Super Bowl Halftime Show, which takes place next month on February 12.

“I’m so glad my lady is back in music and so on and coming out,” he gushed during the interview. “It’s just incredible.”

He seemed to think his child’s mother was the best possible choice for the critically acclaimed performance.

“The Super Bowl is huge, and since she’s so creative, she’s going to make it, man. I’m excited. Honestly, I’m more excited than anyone,” he continued.

Rihanna hasn’t released a studio album since her 2016 hit Anti, which also garnered some of the best reviews of her career.

Since then, she has primarily focused on her hugely successful brand, Fenty Beauty, and her lingerie company, Savage X Fenty.

In September 2022, she released her first single since her long hiatus, the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever track Lift Me Up, which received mixed reviews from critics and failed to resonate with fans.

However, she has confirmed that she is working on new music, although she told Entertainment Weekly in November that her halftime show would focus on music she had already released.

She previously told the Associated Press that fans should expect to wait longer for her release of new tunes.

“Super Bowl is one thing. New music is a different matter. Do you hear that, fans?’ She said.

Rocky (real name: Rakim Mayers) also took a detour to talk about his new life as a father and raising his first child with his love.

“It’s just one of those things,” he said of parenting, adding that it was “inexplicable.”

“I’m now a member of our club, the papa club so to speak. If you see a father, you see me. … I’m a full father now,” he continued.

Rocky, who made a splash with Rihanna last week at the Golden Globe Awards, explained that fatherhood has also reinvigorated his creativity.

“Being outside and working and being creative, it gives you more energy… to think and soak things up like a sponge now that I’m a dad because I have a whole [other] perspective,” he explained. “But it honestly helps you get home to your family and home to your baby. And I can’t even explain it.”

He said he was “so thankful” that he could “come home to heaven every day,” adding, “God is good.”

Rocky and Rihanna officially started dating in November 2020, although they had been good friends for years before that.

In May, the We Found Love singer gave birth to their first child, a baby boy, though the couple didn’t publicly reveal his name.

Rocky has been without a new album for almost as long as his love interest, with his last LP being 2018’s Testing.

However, he is now also working on a new release and released his latest single “Same Problems” on Wednesday.

He explained to Lowe that the song was a tribute to rappers who died as he tried to overcome his “guilt” at escaping their fate.

“Without preaching too much, I just wanted to address something different, rather than just being swaggering, flamboyant, and just regular rap content to me,” Rocky shared. “I just wanted to express myself and say how I feel without preaching. And I think we can all relate to that. We all have the same problems.”

The single released to mark the 10th anniversary of his eponymous track F***ing Problems and the eighth anniversary of the death of his friend and collaborator A$AP Yams.
