Rihanna is drumming up some hype ahead of her Apple Music Super Bowl LVII halftime performance, but not everyone is here for her, including her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky.

The Bajan beauty, who welcomed a son last May, unveiled a new partnership between Fenty and Mitchell & Ness, and it has been revealed that she also included her son’s father in the collaboration. According to WWD, the global superstar and the Harlem rapper collaborated with the streetwear brand and the NFL on an officially licensed limited-edition of apparel that was released earlier this week.

The Fenty x Mitchell & Ness collection features the image that was used in September to announce her halftime show performance on a variety of oversized short- and long-sleeve T-shirts, hoodies, a coach's jacket, and other items. The 17-piece collection also features a Rihanna quote that reads, “If there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s that we can fix this world together. We can’t do it divided, I can’t emphasize that enough.”

Prices for the collection range from $45 to $135, and the line will be sold online at the Fanatics website, the NFL Shop, and in select retailers.

Peep some tweets criticizing Rih’s decision to include the “D.M.B.” rapper below:

In February 2022, Fanatics and a strategic investment group that included Jay-Z, Maverick Carter, Meek Mill, Lil Baby, and the D'Amelio family purchased Mitchell & Ness.

Some heavy hitters, including LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, CJ McCollum, Devin Booker, James Harden, Joel Embiid, Odell Beckham Jr., DeSean Jackson, Kevin Hart, Rich Paul, Rich Kleiman, Scooter Braun, and Steve Stoute, are now part of the ownership group, which was expanded in October.

Several other A-list stars will perform as part of the pre-show before Rihanna's highly anticipated halftime show at the important sporting event.

The NFL revealed that "Lift Every Voice and Sing" will be performed during the pre-show by Emmy-winning actor Sheryl Lee Ralph, who also walked in RiRi's Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 4. R&B singer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds will also perform, singing "America the Beautiful,” and country singer Chris Stapleton will sing the National Anthem.

The 2023 Super Bowl is set to go down on February 12th at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Who you got going to the Super Bowl?
