Photos: Rihanna performs medley of hits at Super Bowl LVII halftime show

Rihanna made her much-anticipated return to the music stage in her fiery, hit-heavy, 13-minute set at the Super Bowl LVII halftime show.

The Barbados native and multi-hyphenate — singer, actress, philanthropist, founder of a makeup and lingerie empire — started her performance in an all-red outfit with matching lip on an elevated stage to her hit "B-tch Better Have My Money" followed by "Where Have You Been."

The superstar ended a musical drought late last year — after seven years with no new music — when she lent her voice to two songs on the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever original soundtrack. One of the songs, "Lift Me Up," is now an Oscar nominee, up for the Best Original Song award at next month's Academy Awards.

"B-tch Better Have My Money"
