The Super Bowl halftime performance clearly was just the start of Rih’s good vibes for the night as she was filmed by friends coming out of her dressing room trailer amid the show.
Dressing into an all-black outfit and emerging with an American football-style handbag, the ‘ANTI’ songstress playfully came down the stairs whilst singing and laughing and of course, repping the flag of her home country Barbados.

She blotted her skin mid-show and although you may have missed it if you blinked, it clearly worked as sales for Rih’s beauty empire soared by a staggering 833% after she promoted it!
